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
Warner, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Seduction and witchcraft aren't really two words we'd readily associate with each other – but sexy witch Louise Huebner manages to make both of them work together nicely! The album's quite an odd one – in which the self-proclaimed modern witch Huebner speaks about lots of spooky stuff ... 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! The set's was recorded in France, and given wider circulation in the US by ... 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
Mr Funny Man
Chess, 1965. Very Good
Classic Pigmeat – recorded live at the Apollo at the height of his career, running through longer routines with Baby Seals, Al Collier, and Elurllie Beam. The routines are all in the sneakin around for some sneaky nookie sort of mode – and titles include "A Lesson In Love", ... LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, 1961/1972. Very Good 3LP Gatefold
Some of the greatest work you could ever find by Lenny Bruce! This set is a brilliant re-creation of a live show that Lenny cut at midnight at Carnegie Hall on February 4, 1961. Unlike some of his LPs from the time - which often featured a lot of set routines – this one just has Lenny ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dot/MCA, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Ken Nordine's first album of goofy jazzy stuff, recorded with the groovy Fred Katz group, and featuring such gems as "The Sound Museum", "Flibberty Jib", and "Hunger Is From". Sampled by United Future Organisation and a whole bunch of others. This is probably his best ... LP, Vinyl record album
