Surveys the territory of neglected "garage sale" records (mostly from the '50s-'70s). Genres examined include: "easy listening," "exotica," "celebrity." Also recordings by (singing) cops, (polka-playing) priests, undertakers, religious ventriloquists, astronauts, opera-singing parrots, beatnik & hippie records, and gospel by blind teenagers with bouffant hairdos.

INCREDIBLY STRANGE MUSIC VOL.2 #15
Incredibly Strange Music, Volume Two, continues the exploration of the territory spotlighted in Volume One: mostly out-of-print vinyl recordings from the '50s-'70s which do not fit into the already critically scrutinized genres of rock, jazz, and classical music. (See the introduction in Volume One, which need not be repeated here.) As in Volume One, we have included collectors who have remapped their own musical aesthetics (taking chances on records for a quarter or a dollar at garage sales and thrift stores). We also interview original artists responsible for some of the most unusual and imaginative recordings since the invention of the 12" LP: Bebe Barron, Juan Garcia Esquivel, Robert Moog, Ken Nordine, Korla Pandit, Yma Sumac, Elisabeth Waldo and Rusty Warren.
This is not a completist's volume: there are thousands of undocumented recordings which have yet to be unearthed and appreciated-many of which were produced and distributed only locally. A record may be worth owning if it has just one outstanding track, or perhaps just beautiful, provocative cover artwork (especially if it's cheap). A universe of unusual 45s awaits an encyclopedic overview, not to mention countless vinyl records from other countries. Readers (and travelers) are encouraged to have fun inventing their own categorizations and collecting specialties as they uncover an "incredibly strange" sonic past they never knew existed, and which yets awaits rediscovery in the garages, attics and storerooms of the world.-V.Vale & Andrea JunoFrom Booklist:
Re/Search continues its exploration of the tackiest, most bizarre, most outrageous artifacts of the recently bygone vinyl era. Rescued from garage sales and thrift stores by dedicated (and disturbed) collectors, these oddball treasures reflect such genres as ethno-exploitation (e.g., fake Polynesian exotica music); celebrities-gone-wrong (The Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy); occupation-specific albums by singing policemen, singing wrestlers, and the one-of-a-kind Singing Logger (Where Walks a Logger, There Walks a Man); right-wing folk music (The Goldwaters Sing Folk Songs to Bug the Liberals); and the unclassifiable (unspeakable?), such as an entire album of flatulence (incredibly strange, to be sure, but music?). The second helping offers more interviews with some of the artists responsibleamong them, blue comedienne Rusty (Knockers Up!) Warren, word jazz artist Ken Nordine, synthesizer pioneer Robert Moog, and legendary five-octave vocalist (and purported Inca princess) Yma Sumacand chats with prominent collectors. Adding to the fun are reproductions of the covers of dozens of camp classics, from Jerry Falwell's Where Are the Dead? to a Barry Whitestyle disco single by Louis Farrakhan. Gordon Flagg
