The Clown from 1957, featuring that spoken monologue by Jean Shepherd, is just one of the five Mingus studio albums from the Atlantic label which are assembled in a Warner “Original albums” box, released this month.
The others are Pithecanthropus Erectus (1956), Blues and Roots (1959), Oh Yeah (1961) and Tonight at Noon (1957 and 1961) .
We have a copy as this week’s prize draw for newsletter readers. The others in the current batch of Original Album releases are listed under Jeanie Barton’s review of the Al Jarreau box
