Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. New Copy
One of the creepiest albums we've ever heard – vintage recordings of Gundella, a Detroit-based, self-proclaimed witch – and one who actually received quite a bit of notoriety back in the day! Gundella's voice is very down to earth – she sounds as she looks on the cover, maybe ... CD

Star Is Bought
Asylum/Wounded Bird, 1975. New Copy

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
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good
Moms takes her case to the White House – yakking it up with the usual hint at off-color comedy, and a knack for a soulful approach that actually helped her bridge more audiences than other African American comics of the time. Routines include "Me & LBJ", "The Beggar The ... LP, Vinyl record album
