Cowboys & Colored People

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

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 – that kind of warmth and charisma that made him a very important force in breaking the boundaries between audiences at the time – able to keep things interesting enough with maybe a wider societal range of topics than the personal humor of Bill Cosby, on routines that include "Staying On Too Long", "Midget", "Riot Suit", "Confidential Survey", "Cheap Hotel", and "Kids".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Green and red label Broadway pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

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.

Laff Of The Party Vol 5
Dooto, Late 50s. Very Good+

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 ...

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

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
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
