Leroy DanielsSexmouth ... LP
Laff, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Leroy was an off-color comedian who worked in Johnny Otis' ensemble of the late 60s and early 70s – not as raw as Rudy Ray Moore, but with a strong smattering of mis-hearings and mis-interpretations of situations, all designed to bring out the bawdiest side possible. Routines include "As Long As You're Getting Some", "Another Spot To Shave", "The Canvas Is Spread", "The Zippers In The Mens Room", and "Pussy In The Well". LP, Vinyl record album

Lena DunhamNot That Kind Of Girl – A Young Woman Tells You What She's Learned (hardcover) ... Book
Random House, 2014. New Copy ... $5.99 28.00
Lena Dunham's always been a very outspoken person – both in her work, and in person – but she maybe hits a new sort of height here, in a book that's partly frank memoir, partly sharp-penned essays – all at a level that's maybe even smarter and more focused than her work in Girls! Dunham really puts it all out there – herself, her politics, her experiences, and her hopes for better solutions – at a level that's maybe even more progressive overall than her work on the screens big and small. Way better than the usual "television comedian writing a book" – very much in a class of its own. 265 pages, hardcover. Book

Dick GregoryTalks Turkey ... LP
Vee Jay, 1962. Very Good ... $3.99
One of Dick Gregory's standout records from the early years – a set that has him talking turkey about a number of subjects that other comedians of the time wouldn't dare touch! Gregory's still quite funny at this point in his career, but also is showing plenty of the politics that would make him a key activist in years to come – and in a way, the album really paves the way for future generations of progressive African-American comedians, but is almost even more amazing for the way it keeps things on the "inside" – and wins over a whole new audience to his ideas in the process. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lord BuckleyBad Rapping Of The Marquis De Sade ... CD
World Pacific, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lord Buckley was one of the strangest comedians this side of the counterculture during the late 50s – and his talent is presented richly in this collection of lost recordings that were unearthed by World Pacific and presented in a hip late 60s package during a period when Buckley was having a bit of a revival. Stranger stuff you'll never hear on record – a mix of jive, camp, and beat sensibilities, recorded in Oakland in 1960. Titles include "The Chastity Belt", "Bad Rapping Of The Marquis De Sade", "H Bomb", and "His Majesty The Policeman". CD

✨✧ Lord BuckleyMost Immaculately Hip Aristocrat ... CD
Straight/Enigma Retro, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the strongest recordings ever made of the mad mad Lord Buckley! The album was issued in the late 60s for Frank Zappa's Straight label – but it features material recorded more than a decade before – at a time when Buckley was still alive, and one of the most bad-rapping comedian's to ever hit a stage. The approach is somewhat freer than some of Buckley's earlier sides – allowing the ersatz comedian a chance to really riff on a variety of subjects – talking with almost a jazz improvisational energy, in the way that made him a big favorite for the beat generation. The overall nature of the record is kind of hard to pin down – as it's not really comedy, just more of a freewheeling spoken session that's a bit jive, a bit beatnik, and plenty darn crazy! Titles include "The Raven", "The King Of Bad Cats", "Governor Slugwell", and "The Hip Einie". CD

✨✧ Mort SahlMort Sahl At The Hungry I ... LP
Verve, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Although not nearly as well-remembered as Lenny Bruce, Mort Sahl is really our favorite comedian from the late 50s. He's got this incredible delivery style that is both immediately arresting and surprisingly heartfelt – and instead of doing short canned "bits", he just sort of rambles on at length about news, politics, and other groovy subjects. This album captures him before a very hip crowd at San Francisco's legendary Hungry I, and it's probably as good a glimpse into post-war American neuroses as you'll ever get! LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap has a hole in front.)

✨✧ Macklay/Reminick/Haydn/Fisher-LochheadSerious Business – Spektral Quartet (CD/blu-ray) ... CD
Sono Luminus, 2016. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
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. CD
(Features the album on CD, with bonus blu-ray audio.)
