Fantasy/Craft, 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
Devil Speaks (& Plays)
Aberrant, Late 60s. New Copy
Very weird work from one of the creepiest dudes to ever emerge from the 60s – head of the Church Of Satan on the west coast – the chrome-domed, pointed-beard Anton La Vey! The album features Anton in both modes promised in the title – first, on a side of weird keyboard and organ ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
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/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

House Top, Late 70s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
... 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
American Dream
Southeastern Recording Co Of America, 1968. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album
Who Me? I'm Not Him
Laff, 1977. Very Good+
Excellent work from Richard Pryor's early years – a record done in the usual "party" style of the Laff label, but with a freewheeling and hip approach to the material that finds its humor in far more than just blue topics and sexual double-entendres! Pryor is frenetic and energetic ... LP, Vinyl record album
That N*gger's Crazy
Warner/Partee, 1974. Good+
Pryor really busted into the mainstream with this one – as the album secured him a grammy for best comedy LP in the year it was released. Recorded live in San Francisco, at Don Cornelius' Soul Train – with tracks that include "Wino & Junkie", "Flying Saucers", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bicentennial N!gger
Warner, 1976. Very Good
With "Hillbilly", "Black & White Women", "Our Gang", "Bicentennial Prayer", "Black Hollywood", "Mudbone Goes To Hollywood", "Chinese Restaurant", "Acid" and "Bicentennial N!gger". LP, Vinyl record album
For Adults Only
Uni, Early 70s. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album
Is It Something I Said?
Warner, 1975. Very Good-
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
