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
I Am The Greatest (with bonus tracks)
Columbia, 1963. New Copy
A great little record – and proof that Muhammad Ali was star material, even in his early years! The record is kind of in the spoken word mode – but has added music by Peter Katz – and features Ali delivering some of his famous poetic "zinger" type material, of the sort ... CD
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
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
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
Reading From The Bible
Decca, Early 50s. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
T&L, 1967. Very Good
Raw and raunchy comedy from Chicago "party" comic Tommy Brown. Not as over the top as Rudy Ray Moore – but still a good example of the blue comedy that was happening in the small club scene back in the 60s and 70s. LP, Vinyl record album
Flippin'
Minit, Mid 60s. Very Good+

... LP, Vinyl record album
All In The Family
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good+
Yipes, this must have been a clear indication of just how popular the show really was! The album's little more than bits lifted off the TV soundtrack – with bits that include "Why God Made Hands", "Sweety Pie Roger", "VD Day", "God is Black", and " ... LP, Vinyl record album

UPI, 1972. Very Good 2LP
Pretty heavy stuff! Dick Gregory takes up the cause of Kent State here – leaving his older roots as a comedian far behind, ans he explores the nature of the tragedy that happened there in May of 1970. The album comes with some pretty gripping photos on the front! LP, Vinyl record album
Have One On Me
Dooto, Early 60s. Very Good
Classic Redd Foxx from the early days at Dooto – featuring some very carefully crafted blue "party" numbers of the sort that made Redd a huge hit in the underground nightclubs. Titles include "Auto Vs Sex", "Pajama Tops", "The Woman Trap", "Black ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1993. Sealed 2LP
... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1976. Very Good
One of the strangest albums on Philly International – especially when you consider what a classy output most of the label was focused on! Dap Sugar Willie was bad-rapping comedian – in the mode of Redd Foxx, who endorses Willie on the back on the album – and here, he's doing ... 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

Fantasy, Late 50s. Very Good+
A fantastic album of spoken word creations by Lawrence Ferlinghetti – the beat poet whose help was so important to the San Francisco scene of the 50s and 60s, and whose own work is pretty darn great too! Titles include "Museum Of Objects Depicting The History Of My Race", "Goya ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pray To Booty
Laff, Mid 70s. Very Good+
Booty Green steps out of the Johnny Otis Show – to deliver a raunchy batch of comedy tracks on this classic party album from the 70s! The feel here is a lot like some of the bigger names of the time – such as Rudy Ray Moore or Doug Clark – lots of raw jokes, served up before a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Be-Be's Kids
Polygram, 1990. Very Good+
We don't need to tell you this album's about ten times funnier than the movie, and sadly the only audio document from one of the funniest comics of 90s. Hilarious skits like "Gonna Change/Spare Change", "Proud To Be From Compton?", "Dumb A** Police", "Jeri ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1951/Late 60s. Near Mint-
A late 60's issue of Lord Buckley's rare early recordings for the Vaya label in LA – groundbreaking sides that predated most comedy albums, and which also had a huge influence on the spoken word recordings of the beat generation! The tracks were recorded live, with Buckley talking in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
