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

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
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 Frigo/Jack Brickhouse

Cub Power
Quill, 1969. Near Mint-
A bit of Chicago sports magic, from that mighty Cubs year of 1969! The set features one side of spoken bits, with Jack Brickhouse and others – and one side of songs sung by the Cubs, set to music by Johnny Frigo and the Bleacher Bum Eight – a combo that inlcudes Floyd Morris on piano!

Lenny Bruce/Lawrence Schiller

Why Did Lenny Bruce Die?
Probe/Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
A pretty interesting record – an audio documentary on the story of Lenny Bruce, featuring narration, music, interviews, and snippets of dialogue by Bruce! The format is pretty great, and surprisingly open about some of the issues at hand. The set is divided up into "The Rise" and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pigmeat Markham

Tune Me In
Chess, Late 60s. Sealed
A great album that mixes funky music and comedy routines by Pigmeat! The set features 2 great funky 45 tracks – the hilarious "My Wife I Ain't Seen Her", plus a remake of "Open The Door Richard", done with some heavy Gene Barge backings. The album also features longer ... LP, Vinyl record album

Moms Mabley

Youngest Teenager
Mercury, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Moms is up to her usual bag here – playing the sassy, sexed-up old lady in an extended comedy routine. But the album does feature one really great standout part – a version of "It's Your Thing", played with nice funky instrumentation, and featuring Moms singing the lyrics! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Breaks Up The Network
Chess, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
Laff, 1976. Near Mint-
A very "current events" oriented set – one that sums up a variety of bigger news stories of the time, spinning them all out with a hip, underground take on the events. Richard and Willie (mostly Willie) dominate, but Richard Pryor gets in a bit too – and the language on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe E Lewis

It Is Now Post Time
Reprise, Early 60s. Near Mint-
One of our favorite records from the early Sinatra years of Reprise – and one of the few documents of the talents of the legendary Joe E Lewis! After Sinatra famously played Lewis on screen, he furthered his tribute to the tragic figure by taping Joe at the Flamingo Hotel in Vegas – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Groupies

Groupies
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 ...
