MGM/Omnivore, 1969/1971. New Copy 2CD
Ever wonder what happens when beatniks turn into hippies? They make albums like this one – a real treasure from the late 60s underground – and a set that showed the complete transformation of Allen Ginsberg at the time! The set's a real oddity – recorded after Ginsburg had hit ... CD
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
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/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
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
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
Hanna Barbera/Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Muhammed's Mosque of Islam, Early 60s. Very Good+
Elijah Muhammad speaks out on this self-released LP from (we think) some time in the 60's. Kind of eerie, with a spooky recording quality, and a voice that sounds like it's come back from the dead. Heavy stuff, though, and a nice relic of the man, with striking photos on both the front and back ... LP, Vinyl record album
Laff, 1970. Very Good-
A lot raunchier than La Wanda ever was as Aunt Esther on Sanford & Son – recorded live, with all the cuss-words and off-color situations she can muster! The cover alone is worth the price of the album – with La Wanda pregnant in a doctor's office, insisting that she's a virgin ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fax, 1960. Very Good-
With such classics as "Ruffle The Muff", "A Hole To Hide It In", "Nine Inch Will Please A Lady", and "Lift My Dress". LP, Vinyl record album
