Pigmeat MarkhamSock It To 'Em Judge/The Hip Judge ... 7-inch
Chess, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Funky Pigmeat! This is one of the few funky singles that Pigmeat Markham cut for Chess – and it's a great one that mixes his off-beat comedy with some very funky grooves! Also a nice play on 2 late 60s comedic Laugh-In themes: "here comes the judge" and "sock it to me"! (Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Chess sleeve, with jukebox strip.)

A great set – and for more reasons than one! Most of the album features rare early 78s by jazz baritonist Leo Parker – one of the real giants on the instrument, and a player with a hard-wailing tone that makes it sound more like a tenor than a clunky giant-sized horn.
