Sounds Of American Doomsday Cults
Faithways, 1984. New Copy
An incredibly spooky record – one cut by a cult of survival fanatics in mid 80s Montana – and featuring spoken and sung bits originally performed for members of their congregation! The group owned a big chunk of land in southern Montana, where they built a huge amount of bombs shelters ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The one-and-only entry in the Verbatum series from Atlantic Records – a proposed spoken word offshoot of the label – but one that only ever issued this fantastic 60s reading by Allen Ginsberg! As you might guess from the cover's beautiful photograph by Richard Avedon, Ginsberg is at ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasy/Modern Silence, 1959. New Copy (reissue)
Maybe one of the coolest albums of poetry ever recorded – a set that features a young, pre-hippie Allen Ginsberg – delivering his epic poem Howel, plus some other key works too. The young Ginsberg's voice is great – and really fills the works with a lot of bitterness and cynicism ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1968. New Copy
Flip Wilson caught live at Mr Kelly's in Chicago – really grabbing the attention of the crowd with a range of routines – some straight jokes, mixed with some of the characters that would increasingly dominate Wilson's performance – all with the sort of crossover appeal that maybe ... CD
Life On The Road
BBC/Universal (UK), 2016. New Copy
A big leap into the musical mind of David Brent – aka the character created by Ricky Gervais for the original UK version of The Office – now off to follow his dream as a singer/songwriter! The music here follows from those last few musical moments that Gervais gave us on the final ... CD
John Hammond/Omnivore, 1971/1976/1981. New Copy 3 CDs
Allen Ginsberg is probably best known as a poet and political force in the 60s and 70s – but during the latter decade, he also entered the studio as a recording artist too – and managed to turn his ideas into some surprisingly groovy tunes! This special 3CD set offers up a hugely ... CD
Call Me Burroughs
ESP/Superior Viaduct, 1966. New Copy (reissue)
The first-ever record to capture the amazing voice of William S Burroughs – the author who helped transform fiction forms in the 60s, but also somewhat of a public figure too – thanks to albums like this! The set's was recorded in France, and given wider circulation in the US by ... LP, Vinyl record album

I Ain't Lied Yet
Laff, 1978. Very Good+
Redd Foxx unfiltered, uncensored and in his live prime! You know, we can never get enough of just about any kind of party record, and the early 70s blue records from Redd Foxx have always been some of our favorites. While he was pretty darn funny doing "straight" comedy on network TV as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty, 1960. Sealed
A great early record from the Munks – one that's actually got plenty of routines in with the songs – kind of a laff around the world spectacular that still has Ross Bagdasarian working hard in the studio! LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1978. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
It's 1978 so that means Richard's heavy into the basing backstage, right? We can't tell for sure, but he cuts loose with the reckless abandon that we love about his late 70s records. Loads of hilarious skits, including 'White & Black People", "Black Funerals", 'Discipline" ... LP, Vinyl record album
