Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1967. New Copy
Hip work from Flip Wilson – an early album on Atlantic Records, issued before his bit TV fame – and a set that's got exactly the kind of edgey vibe you might expect from the title! The set was captured live in a small club, and Wilson's got a very wide appeal in his presentation – ... 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
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
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/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

Odd Couple Sings
Phase 4/London, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Terrible! But pretty darn wonderful, too – at least if you dig The Odd Couple! Considering their roots in Broadway, Randall and Klugman should be pretty decent singers – but instead, they decide to camp it up for this one, as they spend a lot of time arguing about and during sweet old- ...

Fantasy, 1960. Very Good-
1960 nightclub recordings from Lenny Bruce – done at a time when he was really opening up stylistically, and taking on a host of themes that really tell a tale of the times! The work here is plenty edgey – lots of sharp turns, offbeat ideas, and that sharp wit that makes Bruce one of ... LP, Vinyl record album
