Poetry Readings In The Cellar
Fantasy, Late 50s. Very Good
A great window into the beat scene of San Francisco in the late 50s – a legendary session that matches poetry and jazz, recorded at the Cellar nightclub in 1957!

Fat Albert
MCA, 1973. Very Good+
A classic live set from Bill Cosby – recorded at Harrah's Hotel in Reno, Nevada – back in 1973, when he was still pretty darn hip!

World's Greatest Clown
Chess, 1962. Very Good+
Early genius from Pigmeat Markham – a classic performance at the Apollo Theater, recorded by Chess in a style that would set the tone for countless imitations to come!

Live In Las Vegas
Loma, Late 60s. Very Good+
Years before Redd Foxx broke onto the TV mainstream in the 70s, he was already drawing big crowds in Vegas – thanks to wonderfully strong material like you'll hear on this LP!

Fantasy, Late 50s. Very Good-
Possibly the most famous of all the Lenny Bruce albums on Fantasy – as it's the one that has a crazy image of Lenny having a picnic in a cemetery! Lenny's genius is still in formation here – but the record does have some great moments, like the oft-sampled "Religions Inc", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pryor's really hit his stride here, and made the transition to the mainstream, though he's still a darn funny motherf*#ker. Skits include "Shortage Of White People", "New N*ggers", "Cocaine", "Mudbone", "When Your Woman Leaves You" and "Our ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gordy, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
Classic Motown album of two of Dr. King's speeches – "Drum Major Instinct Sermon", from 2/4/68, and "I've Been To The Mountain", from 4/3/68. The latter is especially significant in that it was the last speech King ever made, delivered on the night before he was ... LP, Vinyl record album
