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
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
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
Life On The Road
BBC/Universal (UK), 2016. New Copy
A big leap into the musical mind of David Brent – aka the character created by Ricky Gervais for the original UK version of The Office – now off to follow his dream as a singer/songwriter! The music here follows from those last few musical moments that Gervais gave us on the final ... CD
John Hammond/Omnivore, 1971/1976/1981. New Copy 3 CDs
Allen Ginsberg is probably best known as a poet and political force in the 60s and 70s – but during the latter decade, he also entered the studio as a recording artist too – and managed to turn his ideas into some surprisingly groovy tunes! This special 3CD set offers up a hugely ... CD
Call Me Burroughs
ESP/Superior Viaduct, 1966. New Copy (reissue)
The first-ever record to capture the amazing voice of William S Burroughs – the author who helped transform fiction forms in the 60s, but also somewhat of a public figure too – thanks to albums like this! The set's was recorded in France, and given wider circulation in the US by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Boston Soul
Parkway, Late 60s. Sealed
... LP, Vinyl record album
Superstar
MF, Late 60s. Very Good+
Like most of the other MF records releases by Foxx, the cover doesn't reveal too much about what's actually on the record, but we're willing to bet this album was cut in his prime and raunchy stand up years, with lots of blue humor and racy jokes! LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty, 1960. Sealed
A great early record from the Munks – one that's actually got plenty of routines in with the songs – kind of a laff around the world spectacular that still has Ross Bagdasarian working hard in the studio! LP, Vinyl record album
I Ain't Lied Yet
Laff, 1978. Very Good+
Redd Foxx unfiltered, uncensored and in his live prime! You know, we can never get enough of just about any kind of party record, and the early 70s blue records from Redd Foxx have always been some of our favorites. While he was pretty darn funny doing "straight" comedy on network TV as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Imperial, 1960s. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album
Chess, Early 60s. Very Good
Pretty raw stuff from Moms – not in the content, but in the style of recording, as the record's definitely an "on the spot" number – recorded live in concert at the Apollo. However, that also makes it pretty compelling – as Moms is in home territory here – keeping ... LP, Vinyl record album
National Council Of Teachers Of English, 1966. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Poetry Of Blake
Caedmon, 1958. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Poetry Of Wordsworth
Caedmon, 1957. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1978. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
It's 1978 so that means Richard's heavy into the basing backstage, right? We can't tell for sure, but he cuts loose with the reckless abandon that we love about his late 70s records. Loads of hilarious skits, including 'White & Black People", "Black Funerals", 'Discipline" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Disneyland, 1964. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Backstage
Chess, 1967. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album
Twenty Grand/Afro American Broadcasting & Recording Co, 1965. Very Good+
Original pressing of this classic speech and one of the best documents of Malcolm X on vinyl, and an essential bit of knowledge. LP, Vinyl record album
