Moms Mabley Sings

LP (Item 480609) Chess, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Quite an unusual album from Moms Mabley – one that actually has her singing, but also doing a fair bit of comedy as well! If anything, the tunes are almost parodies of famous versions – sung by Mom with a great deal of charm, in her familiar raspy vocals – and often filled with spoken interruptions in which Mabley reflects on the oddity of the lyrics or her own performance! The album's recorded live, with small combo backing – unfortunately not credited in the notes – and titles include "She's Funny That Way", "Put It Back", "Mean To Me", "School Days", "Mom's Dream", "Everything's Going To Be All Right", and "You Reap Just What You Sow".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear, some aging, and a ring stain.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Straight, 1956. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the strongest recordings ever made of the mad mad Lord Buckley!

It's 1978 so that means Richard's heavy into the basing backstage, right? We can't tell for sure, but he cuts loose with the reckless abandon that we love about his late 70s records.

Woody Allen
Colpix, 1964. Very Good+
Woody's very first LP – and a pretty great album of standup material, cut back when he was just a budding writer for TV. The set was recorded at Mr Kelly's in Chicago, and has an easy going flow – with Woody just talking his way through material, almost in a Lenny Bruce sort of way. LP, Vinyl record album

Benny Hill

Words & Music
Capitol, 1972. Very Good+
An excellent album that features loads of material from Benny Hills' early days – when he was tighter and fresher, and before he worked too many years for ITV! You may recognize a number of these titles from later recordings, but these early ones are just great, and feature a much more ... LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Probably the biggest album by this Chicago soul group, and the one that yielded up their big hit "The First Time We Met".
