Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali)

I Am The Greatest (with bonus tracks)
Columbia, 1963. New Copy
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 ... CD
Fantasy/Craft, 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

Amiri Baraka

It's Nation Time
Black Forum/Motown, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
An amazing record that's as powerful as the political message of the title – the hippest record ever cut by Amiri Baraka, and that's saying a heck of a lot! Baraka delivers a long and complex set of poetic reflections on the state of Black America, spiritual awakening, and political ... LP, Vinyl record album

Langston Hughes, Gwendolyn Brooks, & Others

Anthology Of Negro Poets
Folkways, 1966. Very Good
Includes readings by Langston Hughes, Gwendolyn Brooks, Countee Cullen, Sterling Brown, and Margaret Walker! LP, Vinyl record album

Faye Richmonde

For Men Only
Davis, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good
Boy, oh boy, what great use for a fiddle on an album cover – an album that's all lovely voice, laidback piano, and seedy lyrics! These are songs to hoot and holler to, just like that cover photo – a risque little relic For Men Only – number perfect for a retro burlesque show, it's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Audio Book Adult Series, Early 60s. Very Good+
A great set of audio porn – for adults only! LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Maybe worth it for the beautiful Al Capp cover alone! Features Larry Douglas as Abner, Susan Johnson as Daisy Mae, and music by Stan Applebaum! LP, Vinyl record album

Mort Sahl

Next President
Verve, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Mort Sahl may never have made it to the presidency (his criticism of the Warren Report may have had something to do with that) – but his command of politics was stronger than most in his generation, and his razor-sharp wit was always spot-on! LP, Vinyl record album

Robert Murphy (Murphy In The Morning)

Murphy's Greatest Bits
WKQX, 1984. Sealed
A set of on-air comedy bits by Murphy In The Morning – one of the wilder Chicago radio DJs in the early 80s! LP, Vinyl record album

... LP, Vinyl record album

Franklyn MacCormack

Evening With Franklyn MacCormack
IRC, 1965. Sealed
The famous voice of love from Chicago radio – heard here on a much more obscure set than his Liberty album from earlier years! The set features organ accompaniment from Adele Scott, too. LP, Vinyl record album

Lenny Bruce

Berkeley Concert
Bizarre/Reprise, Mid 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
An incredible Lenny Bruce concert from the mid 60s – recorded before a very friendly Berkeley audience, at a time when Bruce was being heavily persecuted by the authorities for his groundbreaking style of humor. Although many of Bruce's performances during this time lapsed into a dullness ... LP, Vinyl record album
Douglas, Early 60s/Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold
A repackaged version of the album To Is A Preposition, Come Is A Verb – a 70's issue of material that was too raunchy to be released in the 60's! This is Lenny Bruce at his finest, with some of the best little bits that made him famous (including many of the ones that were used in the movie ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steve Martin

Wild & Crazy Guy
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
Steve Martin at the height of his powers – when he was hitting on all burners with his TV specials, nightclub appearances, and radio airplay. The album's big selling point was the single "King Tut" – Martin's ridiculous tribute to the late great pharaoh, whose treasures were ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ken Nordine

Son Of Word Jazz
Dot, Late 50s. Very Good+
Nice one! This is Ken Nordine's follow-up to his highly successful Word Jazz album, and it's another crazy batch of jazz-meets-beat poetry-meets-goofy stuff. Ken Nordine's wit is razor sharp as usual, and the tracks include "The Bullfighter", "Junk Man", "Looking At ... LP, Vinyl record album


Earth, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Fantastic LP of "authentic" interviews with "real live groupies" from the late 60's. Theoretically an expose, this is more of a loose conversation with the girls drinking their way through a chat about the different positions that their lifestyle puts them in. We're not sure ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
La Val, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Another raw party record from the Funky Tramp, Jimmy Lynch. While not as over the top as Dolemite or other Rudy Ray Moore records, there's still some choice moments of blue comedy on here. LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Gunn with Don Ralke

Introspection IV
Warner, 1960. Very Good+
A very cool set – Johnny Gunn delivers hipster monologues over slightly jazzy, oddball orchestrations led by Don Ralke and played by a host of west coast jazz guys that includes Howard Roberts, Shelly Manne, Buddy Collette, Plas Johnson, Milt Raskin and Larry Bunker! In a similar vein to the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Just So Stories & Other Tales
Caedmon, 1958. Sealed
... LP, Vinyl record album
La Val, Late 60s. Very Good+
Fourth volume in Jimmy Lynch's funky tramp series of blue comedy records. While he wasn't quite as funky or over the top raunchy as Rudy Ray Moore or early Redd Foxx, it's a pretty decent party record that would fit right in with a collection of stuff like Laff records and so forth.
