Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
How To Speak Hip
Mercury/Go Bop (Germany), 1961. New Copy (reissue)
A hilarious album – not dated at all, and really pretty groovy stuff that holds up well over time! The format is this: Brent and Close are the hippie and straight man – presenting a guide to talking "hip", which is a mixture of beatnik and junkie slang, delivered in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Star Is Bought
Asylum/Wounded Bird, 1975. New Copy
A wonderfully hip comedy album from the early years of Albert Brooks – very much in the spirit of the LA Warner scene of which Brooks was a part! The album's set up as an "all format radio" record – and as such, also offers a great snapshot of mid 70s radio – with ... CD
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
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
CD...$9.99 18.98
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
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

A great album that mixes funky music and comedy routines by Pigmeat! The set features 2 great funky 45 tracks – the hilarious "My Wife I Ain't Seen Her", plus a remake of "Open The Door Richard", done with some heavy Gene Barge backings. The album also features longer ... LP, Vinyl record album

Berkeley Concert
Bizarre/Reprise, Mid 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
An incredible Lenny Bruce concert from the mid 60s – recorded before a very friendly Berkeley audience, at a time when Bruce was being heavily persecuted by the authorities for his groundbreaking style of humor. Although many of Bruce's performances during this time lapsed into a dullness ... LP, Vinyl record album

Laff, 1976. Near Mint-
