Ethan Persoff alerted me to his wonderful collection of audio enchantment, called Live at Harry's Loft.
Many people who visit our library of weird printed items are surprised to find just as many pieces of odd and unheard music. Rare records on unimaginable subjects: An entire PSA album from Barbra Streisand about putting clothes on "little retarded children", anti-abortion music, craft tapes for inmates.

Including celebrity appearances from: Sammy Davis Jr, Barbra Streisand, Kenny Rogers, a constantly looping Loretta Lynn, and Lorne Greene.

The battery blows, you spill water or coffee all over the place, or it just shuts down with no explanation, and you’re screwed. […]
