Bird Watching
Columbia, 1959. New Copy (reissue)
Wild! The Nutty Squirrels were an obvious attempt to cash in on the success of Alvin & The Chipmunks during the late 50s – a studio-trickery session handled with the voices of Don Elliott and Sascha Burland – but to our ears, honestly, the album's a lot better! You see, both ... LP, Vinyl record album
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!

I Am The Greatest
Columbia, 1963. Very Good
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

World's Greatest Clown
Chess, 1962. Very Good
Early genius from Pigmeat Markham – a classic performance at the Apollo Theater, recorded by Chess in a style that would set the tone for countless imitations to come! The cover has kind of a "sad clown" sort of look, but Pigmeat's in full force on a series of routines that include ... LP, Vinyl record album
Live In Las Vegas
Loma, Late 60s. Very Good
Years before Redd Foxx broke onto the TV mainstream in the 70s, he was already drawing big crowds in Vegas – thanks to wonderfully strong material like you'll hear on this LP!

La Val, Mid 70s. Very Good+
A raw party record on La Val, with a hilarious cover image with the quote "You fugged up my afro, now you're spryin something on me that smells like sh#t!" that opens this record. Al the funky barber's in pretty much the same vein as most other early 70s party records, with a funky band ... LP, Vinyl record album
