4/27/2008 - 5/3/2008

The shift from April to May finds us with a pair of notable new releases from Jandek and Bobby & Blumm. Reissues include a disc comprised of the until now out-of-print debut release and early singles from space-age pop master Juan Garcia Esquivel, a nice looking disc of comedian Bill Cosby's far-out soul/psych-funk meanderings with his group the Bunions Bradford Band, and a compilation of unreleased radio work from Orson Welles' Mercury radio theatre company.
