Big Bambu

LP (Item 397170) Ode, 1972 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

We don't know about you, but we never get tired of Cheech & Chong's jokes about reefer and East LA. Loads of great pot jokes on this album with the nice rolling paper gatefold sleeve, including "Sister Mary Elephant", "Ralph & Herbie", "Streets Of New York Or Los Angeles Or San Francisco Or. . .", "The Bust", "Let's Make A Dope Deal" and "Unamerican Bandstand".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the novelty rolling paper! Cover has light wear. Vinyl has a short click for a few spins on "The Bust" but plays fine otherwise.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Sloppy Daniels

Laff Of The Party Vol 5
Dooto, Late 50s. Very Good+
Maybe not as all-out perfect as the Redd Foxx albums from the same time, but still pretty darn great – with routines that include "The Bad Dream", "The Telephone", "Mr Bear", "My Family", and "The Preacher's Parrots". LP, Vinyl record album
Straight, 1956. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the strongest recordings ever made of the mad mad Lord Buckley! The album was issued in the late 60s for Frank Zappa's Straight label – but it features material recorded more than a decade before – at a time when Buckley was still alive, and one of the most bad-rapping comedian's ...

Richard Pryor
Dove/Reprise, Early 70s. Very Good+
Classic early stuff from Richard Pryor – with a wild cover that parodies National Geographic, and which features Richard dressed as a primitive with a bow & arrow! Nice and raw – with routines like "Super N*gger", "Girls", "Farting", and "Smells&qu ... LP, Vinyl record album

Goodly Soul
Laff, Early 70s. Very Good+
The team of Skillet & Leroy have a decidedly old school approach to comedy – as the routines on here are a bit 50s, compared to the date of the record – but they're always pretty darn great, and were a key part of the Johnny Otis show of the time. The group back up the boys a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy McCracklin

New Soul Of Jimmy McCracklin
Imperial, Mid 60s. Good
Raw hard soul by this great bluesy soul singer. Jimmy produced and arranged the whole thing, and he lays down a great batch of originals like "Come On Home", "Just Let Me Cry", "Self Experience", and "Thinking Back". Also with a cover of "These Boots ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor, 1981. Very Good+
Roy Ayers in a very Afro-styled mode – working here on his own after a famous collaboration with Fela Kuti – in a set that's filled with the same sort of hard-driving Afro-Funk grooves that you'd find in Fela's classic recordings! The songs are shorter than Fela's, and with more of Roy' ... LP, Vinyl record album
