Redd FoxxBoth Sides Of Redd Foxx ... LP
Loma, Late 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
Both sides of Redd Foxx – bawdy and classy! The album's one of Redd's great late 60s ones on Loma – produced with a higher quality than some of the indie and knock-off sessions that were floating around at the time – excellent sound that really highlights his sense of wordplay and timing, the key skills that really set him apart from other comedians at the time! Foxx really knows how to get down to business with his routines here – using a frankness that's totally great – that easy-going conversational mode that owes a bit to Lenny Bruce, but which comes off with more of a down to earth style. But it's also the way that he holds back that really makes the jokes great – the things left unsaid, but which are clearly pointed at – steeped in Redd's life experience, but delivered with a great sense of care. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some marker and seam splitting.)

Macklay/Reminick/Haydn/Fisher-LochheadSerious Business – Spektral Quartet (CD/blu-ray) ... CD
Sono Luminus, 2016. New Copy 2CDs ... $17.99 24.99
A wonderful record from this important string quartet – a group who strike a fine balance between being playful and playing powerfully, and who have a really tremendous ear for unusual repertoire too! The cover and title might seem a bit gimmicky, but Spektral Quartet are far from that – as they really grab us right away with their unusual sense of string textures, and the greater sonic possibilities of the quartet – working here on some material commissioned especially for the group, and other compositions that they really transform in their performance. The set begins with the captivating "Many Many Cadences" – a piece that's exactly as the title describes – then moves into the "Ancestral Mousetrap", a suite of tracks that also features some text from Russell Edson performed by the group as they play. The album then makes an abrupt shift to Haydn's "String Quartet Op 33 No 2 – The Joke" – which is handled by the group with a style that's faithful to the writing, but also very individual as well – especially as it's followed by "Hack" – a long suite of very short tracks, which follows the "joke" thematically, as each section is titled after a comedian – "Sarah Silverman", "Lenny Bruce", "Dick Gregory", and so on – but all with individual performances that extrapolate the ideas of those performers through a modern string quartet interpretation.

✨✧ Rudy Ray MooreThis P*ssy Belongs To Me – The Second Rudy Ray Moore Album ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. Very Good ... $4.99
Rudy Ray Moore's second album, and almost hipper than the first – thanks to some key musical backings from The Fillmore St Soul Rebellion! The vibe here is as rough and raw as you'd expect – a no-holds-barred version of party records, with Rudy using plenty of language hardly heard this strongly on record again until the hip hop generation. The music's often mixed a bit lower than the vocals, but is still present enough to make things sound funky – and titles include the classic "Mr Big Dick", plus "The Gorillas Are Coming", "California Poetry", "Hurricane Anne Meets Dolemite", and "40 Pounds of Chitlings". Language is raw – so be warned! LP, Vinyl record album
("Comedian Series" pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)

Prince PaulPolitics Of Business ... LP
Razor & Tie, 2003. Near Mint- 2LP ... $13.99
Prince Paul returns to the hard-hitting, ambitious narrative format of his great Prince Among Thieves LP with this all star effort that features Guru, Masta Ace, Trugoy, Planet Asia, the Beatnuts, Chuck D, Ice T, Jean Grae, Premier, Kardinal Official, Erick Sermon, Sly Boogie, MF Doom, comedians Dave Chappelle & Chris Rock, and others. This time the story line covers the life span of a hip hop record, and the hard truths of a life in the business. The incisively satirical skits that Paul's famous for (he's one of the VERY few cats that can actually pull those things off, possibly because he hires actual comics to play them out) are here in abundance, and so are the darker-edged, lean & popping beats and surprising samples that he does so incredibly well! Another great piece of work from one of the most innovative producers of the last couple of decades. Lots of tracks and skits including "Make Room", "So What", "The Drive By", "Politics Of The Business", "What I Need" and more. Dialogue sample: "C'mon Paul, this is backpacking music. We'll be lucky if we can go double wood with this $h!t. Take back these wackass records and bring me something I can sell!" Highly recommended! Plus, the LP has one bonus track!

✨✧ Lenny BruceCarnegie Hall – February 4, 1961 ... LP
United Artists, 1961/1972. Used 3LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest work you could ever find by Lenny Bruce! This set is a brilliant re-creation of a live show that Lenny cut at midnight at Carnegie Hall on February 4, 1961. Unlike some of his LPs from the time - which often featured a lot of set routines – this one just has Lenny improvising freely, telling jokes, doing schtick, and bad-rapping on a variety of topics from pills, to homosexuality, to airlines, to the KKK, to VD, to other contemporary comedians. The album's one of the few to really capture Bruce's brilliance as a performer and a thinker – and the spontaneity of the very long recording is astounding. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lenny BruceTogetherness – I Am Not A Nut, Elect Me ... LP
Fantasy, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic early Lenny Bruce work on Fantasy – a groundbreaking set of tracks that features some great shorter snippets, plus a few of the longer, more drawn-out routines that soon became Bruce's stock in trade during the more controversial years – those live riffs that really set Lenny apart from other comedians, and which set the scene for generations to come! Titles include the 19 minute "The Palladium", plus "Our Governors", "My Trip To Miami", "Esther Costello Story", "White Collar Drunks", and "The Steve Allen Show". LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Redd FoxxLive In Las Vegas ... LP
Loma, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Years before Redd Foxx broke onto the TV mainstream in the 70s, he was already drawing big crowds in Vegas – thanks to wonderfully strong material like you'll hear on this LP! Foxx's presentation here is wonderful – careful enough on topics to reach a crossover audience, but also down to earth too – crossing the tracks with bits of wit and wisdom, all delivered with impeccable timing. The subject matter gets a bit off-color at times, but Redd has a beautiful talent for keeping things clean, even when hinting at the dirty – and it's this balance that really makes the record wonderful – enough care for his choice of words to bring some class to his act, and really set him apart from some simple bawdy comedian.

✨✧ Rudy Ray MooreRudy Ray Moore Zodiac Album ... LP
Comedian International, Mid 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best of the Rudy Ray Moore raunchy party albums from the 70s, and one that must be seen to be believed! The cover has "Rudy" standing nude with "The Madam" – but the man on the front really isn't Rudy, as you can plainly see that his face has been pasted over the image of another male model! Around this image, different Zodiac signs are interpreted by images of a couple making love in different positions! But if that's not enough, the album actually has a great long track called "The Sensuous Black Man Meets The Sensuous Black Woman", plus two shorter "Trips Through The Signs Of The Zodiac" by Rudy – one for men, and one for women! LP, Vinyl record album
(With the removable sticker mostly peeled. Cover has some wear and splitting.)
