Warner, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Seduction and witchcraft aren't really two words we'd readily associate with each other – but sexy witch Louise Huebner manages to make both of them work together nicely! The album's quite an odd one – in which the self-proclaimed modern witch Huebner speaks about lots of spooky stuff ... LP, Vinyl record album

Weird World/Essential, 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs
Insane sounds from Clarence "Blowfly" Reid – a singer who first started out as a straight soul artist, but moved into huge 70s fame in his Blowfly guise – a character who offered up a range of very off-color parodies of famous tunes of the time! Blowfly's approach was a lot ... 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

Bird Watching
Columbia, 1959. New Copy (reissue)
Wild! The Nutty Squirrels were an obvious attempt to cash in on the success of Alvin & The Chipmunks during the late 50s – a studio-trickery session handled with the voices of Don Elliott and Sascha Burland – but to our ears, honestly, the album's a lot better! You see, both ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
A spoken word classic – Richard Harris' reading of Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet – all set to some sublime backings from Arif Mardin! Harris has an even more pointed style of pronunciation than on some of his previous records on ABC – less of a shining tramp than the British actor ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fantasy, Late 50s. Very Good
Not necessarily a record of interviews – as the title might make you think – but one of Bruce's best records for Fantasy! The album's got some very edgey bits that approximate his live material, and which take the best part of his cleaner act, and transfer them well to record. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Save Your Soul, Baby!
Chess, 1967. Very Good+
Pigmeat recorded live, before very familiar company, at the Regal Theater in Chicago – during the height of its 60s fame!

Fantasy, Late 50s. Very Good
Amazing work from one of the hippest comedians of the postwar years – not only filled with razor-sharp wit about politics and society of the period, but delivered in a long stream, without any "bits" – a real revolution that made Sahl a huge influence on standup for years to ...
