A Place Called "Far Out"

Ken Nordine - Word Jazz

Incredible! I finally found a copy of this album, of which I had only ever heard tell, never even hearing one track from it. Of course, it is pure Ken Nordine: that voice and the bizarre narratives which are nowhere near as bizarre in reality as the delivery makes them seem.

Any album which opens with a track containing the words, "Short time ago, we went out to a place together, to a place called 'Far Out'", has got to be good!
