Ok so this is cheating a bit because I posted this once before about 4 years ago back in the .blogspot days. But so much has changed since then! And it’s still one of my favorite weird records. Plus I haven’t posted an out of print record in a while.
This is so super niche that it makes my head spin. It’s the companion record to the book Seashells Of North America by R. Tucker Abbott. This record has Abbott reading through, alphabetically, what I assume is a comprehensive list of the scientific names of seashells found in North America (and some “glossaries”). That’s it. No additional context, no background music, just one dedicated dude doing showing off his pro enunciating skills.
There’s a scan of the back of the jacket included in the zip which has the entire A-Z list of seashells so you can read along with Mr. Abbott.
