Omni (Australia), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Completely bizarre work from Brother Theodore – a strange postwar cultural figure who'd arrived in the US from a rescue of the holocaust hellhole of Dachau, then reinvented himself as an offbeat actor and monologist!

ESP/Word Beat, 1966. Used ... $2.99

Ron Carter & Danny SimmonsBrown Beatnik Tomes – Live At BRIC House ... CD
Blue Note, 2019. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Ron Carter has always been way more than a straight jazz bassist – especially in the past few decades, where his collaborative spirit has taken him into territory we never would have imagined early on in his career! Here, he works alongside writer Danny Simmons – whose words inform ... (Jazz, Comedy/Spoken) read more CD

Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali)I Am The Greatest (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1963. New Copy ... $3.99
A great little record – and proof that Muhammad Ali was star material, even in his early years! The record is kind of in the spoken word mode – but has added music by Peter Katz – and features Ali delivering some of his famous poetic "zinger" type material, of the sort ... read more CD

Folkways, 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 16.98
A really unique document of the struggle and story of Angela Davis – recorded in 1971 by ABC news, and packaged together here as kind of a sonic program by Folkways! The record works like a short news program – starting out with a statement by Angela, then moving to a narrated ... read more CD

Nancy DupreeSweet Thunder – Black Poetry By Nancy Dupree ... CD
Folkways, 1977. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
Great work from one of the most compelling poets to record for Folkway Records in the 70s – the always-righteous Nancy Dupree, working here in a really bad-rapping set of work! The album beings with a spoken, then sung, introduction from Dupree – then continues in a very conversational ... (Soul, Comedy/Spoken) read more CD

Sarah Webster FabioSoul Ain't – Soul Is ... CD
Folkways, 1973. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 16.98
A hard biting album of hip poetry from the great Sarah Webster Fabio! The title cut is a brutal attack on the free use of the word soul by black musicians – and Sarah delivers the words over spare conga backing by family member Cyril Leslie Fabio II. Cyril shows up on one other track – ... (Soul, Comedy/Spoken) read more CD

Sarah Webster FabioTogether To The Tune Of Coltrane's Equinox ... CD
Folkways, 1977. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 16.98
Seminal 70s work from Sarah Webster Fabio – an amazing blend of poetry and music, and incredibly hip all the way through! Fabio's got a depth that goes beyond other commercial poets of the time – a righteousness that's right at home in the spiritual jazz scene of the 70s, and which is ...

Allen GinsbergFirst Blues – Rags, Ballads, & Harmonium Songs ... CD
Folkways, 1981. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 16.98
One of the coolest records we've ever heard from beat legend Allen Ginsberg – not just a record of his famous poetry, but one that also features him on harmonium as well! There's a really weird, dark sound to the record – as Ginsberg plays harmonium and sings/speaks his own words ... read more CD

Very free-flowing poetry from a group of artists that includes older beats and younger hippies – all gathered together for the New York Workshop In Nonviolence!

Nikki GiovanniCotton Candy On A Rainy Day ... CD
Folkways, 1978. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 16.98
One of the lesser-known 70s albums by Nikki Giovanni – a wonderful selection of material from her book Cotton Candy On A Rainy Day – read in a spare setting, without any musical accompaniment! In some ways, this album's even better than the more famous Giovanni albums on Atlantic ... (Soul, Comedy/Spoken) read more CD

Nikki GiovanniReason I Like Chocolate ... CD
Folkways, 1976. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 16.98
A beautiful post-Atlantic album from Nikki Giovanni – much more intimate and personal than her better known work, with only Nikki's voice throughout the album – heard on a number of shorter poems!

Langston HughesVoice Of Langston Hughes ... CD
Folkways, 1950s. New Copy ... $11.99 16.98
A wonderful collection of work from Langston Hughes – material pulled from a handful of albums recorded for the Folkway labels in the 50s, all of which are pretty darn great and long out of print!

Ernie KovacsErnie Kovacs Album (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Omnivore, Early 60s/1976. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
An audio document of the genius of the Ernie Kovacs TV show of the early 60s – served up with almost as much dynamic energy as the show itself! Given the lack of visuals, the focus here is mostly on dialogue-heavy routines – so there's less of the wordless musical numbers that are ... read more CD

Sonia SanchezSun Lady For All Seasons Reads Her Poetry ... CD
Folkways, 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 16.98
Very righteous work from this obscure 70s poet – a contemporary to Nikki Giovanni, Camille Yarbrough, and others – but not nearly as widely recorded! The album features no instrumentation, just Sonia reading her poems – and the work itself is pretty progressive, very much in the ... read more CD

Folkways, 1959. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 16.98
A very unusual record – one that has the Folkways ethnographic team on the streets of New York, recording the songs and calls of "six boys in trouble" as they riff and sing on some rough and raw numbers! The record's an odd turn of the ethnographic ear to the American scene – ... read more CD

Reprise/Now Sounds (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $12.99
One of the weirdest albums of the 60s, and a surprisingly big hit for the legendary Tiny Tim – a character then know to TV audiences for his appearances on Laugh-In and other shows – but an artist who sounds surprisingly culture-counter all these years later! The album's got some ... (Rock, Comedy/Spoken) read more CD

A crazy collection of singles from the pre-hippie years of the beatnik – that cool cat who loved jazz, read poetry, and dug the scene with plenty of attitude!
