El (UK), 1940/1942/1946. New Copy
This guy's neither the Sabu who played congas on Blue Note, nor the long-haired hard rocker from later years – but Selar Shaik Sabu, an early Indian film star heard here on a dramatic recording from the 40s! The core part of the CD features a young Sabu reading selections from Rudyard ... 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

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

Haxan – Witchcraft Through The Ages
Sotpackan (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
A stunning little record – one that features spoken passages from William S Burroughs over instrumental backdrops by Daniel Humair – all in one of the spookiest albums we've ever heard! Burroughs talks about witchcraft and the supernatural – past and present – in that ... CD

Groupies
Earth, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Fantastic LP of "authentic" interviews with "real live groupies" from the late 60's. Theoretically an expose, this is more of a loose conversation with the girls drinking their way through a chat about the different positions that their lifestyle puts them in. We're not sure ...

Why Did Lenny Bruce Die?
Probe/Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
A pretty interesting little record – an audio documentary on the story of Lenny Bruce, featuring narration, music, interviews, and snippets of dialogue by Bruce! The format is pretty great, and surprisingly open about some of the issues at hand. The set is divided up into "The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jubilee, Late 60s. Very Good+
An unusual album from the famous creator of Lil Abner – with a unique Al Capp cover to boot! The image is a great illustration of that tension between old-guard American satirists and the left underground in the 60s. LP, Vinyl record album

Songs Of Innocence & Experience
MGM/Klimt (France), 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)
Ever wonder what happens when beatniks turn into hippies? They make albums like this one! A real oddity – and recorded in 1969, after Ginsburg had hit new fame for his appearance at the Chicago 7 trial. The record features Ginsburg reading the works of William Blake and playing Harmonium ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reads His Poetry
Takoma/Real Gone, 1972. Sealed (reissue)
Charles Bukowski in all his glory – reading his own material before a very lively (and probably lubricated!) audience – bringing all his own vocal tones into play with his earthy writing – which makes us love the words even more than in printed form! The set was recorded in San ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good+
Mickey Katz's first full LP for Capitol – a collection of early singles, many of which were parodies of famous songs of the time, redone with a borscht belt twist! The instrumentation features quite a bit of Mickey's clarinet – and when he's not camping it up in a Spike Jones mode, he's ... LP, Vinyl record album

When I Was A Kid
Uni, Early 70s. Very Good+
Bill Cosby recalls the days of his youth in a set of classic routines that include "My Brother Russell", "Dogs", "Frogs", "My Father", "My Boy Scout Troup", and "Buck Jones" – all delivered with Fat Albert-era charm! Despite Albert's ... LP, Vinyl record album
