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
How To Speak Hip
Mercury/Go Bop (Germany), 1961. New Copy (reissue)
A hilarious album – not dated at all, and really pretty groovy stuff that holds up well over time! The format is this: Brent and Close are the hippie and straight man – presenting a guide to talking "hip", which is a mixture of beatnik and junkie slang, delivered in a ... 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, 1967. Very Good+
Hip work from Flip Wilson – an early album on Atlantic Records, issued before his bit TV fame – and a set that's got exactly the kind of edgey vibe you might expect from the title! The set was captured live in a small club, and Wilson's got a very wide appeal in his presentation – ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Tomato, 1970. Very Good 2LP
Dick Gregory at his most righteous – recorded live at the Bronx Community College, and speaking on topics that include The Black Panthers, the Chicago 7, Black Power, Money, Patriots, Riots, and "Checking Out Whites". Less funky than political – which actually makes it a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album

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! The cover has kind of a "sad clown" sort of look, but Pigmeat's in full force on a series of routines that include ... LP, Vinyl record album

That N*gger's Crazy
Warner/Partee, 1974. Very 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
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good-
Includes the great musical cut "Super Funk" – heavy piano behind Moms' comedy lines! LP, Vinyl record album
