Lenny BruceTogetherness – I Am Not A Nut, Elect Me ... LP
Fantasy, 1959. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Classic early Lenny Bruce work on Fantasy – a groundbreaking set of tracks that features some great shorter snippets, plus a few of the longer, more drawn-out routines that soon became Bruce's stock in trade during the more controversial years – those live riffs that really set Lenny apart from other comedians, and which set the scene for generations to come! Titles include the 19 minute "The Palladium", plus "Our Governors", "My Trip To Miami", "Esther Costello Story", "White Collar Drunks", and "The Steve Allen Show". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Back cover and labels have a name in marker.)

Redd FoxxBoth Sides Of Redd Foxx ... LP
Loma, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Both sides of Redd Foxx – bawdy and classy! The album's one of Redd's great late 60s ones on Loma – produced with a higher quality than some of the indie and knock-off sessions that were floating around at the time – excellent sound that really highlights his sense of wordplay and timing, the key skills that really set him apart from other comedians at the time! Foxx really knows how to get down to business with his routines here – using a frankness that's totally great – that easy-going conversational mode that owes a bit to Lenny Bruce, but which comes off with more of a down to earth style. But it's also the way that he holds back that really makes the jokes great – the things left unsaid, but which are clearly pointed at – steeped in Redd's life experience, but delivered with a great sense of care.

Laurence RosenthalComedians ... LP
MGM, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $1.99
Semi-serious score for this film based on the Graham Greene novel of the same name. But since the thing's set in Haiti, it's got some bits that sound a little tropical, like "The Voodoo Temple" and some other ditties. LP, Vinyl record album

Mort SahlFuture Lies Ahead ... LP
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $4.99
One of the brilliant albums recorded for Verve by 50s political comedian Mort Sahl. Sahl was a key figure in a line of west coast hipsters that included Dave Brubeck, Paul Desmond, Ralph J Gleason, and Cal Tjader – and his razor sharp wit was fueled by the paradoxes of both Eisenhower-era mainstream America, and the bohemian underground of San Francisco and LA. This live set is a perfect glimpse of his genius – always improvised, and completely well-informed about the events of the day, yet with enough distance to see the humor in just about any situation. LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Verve Inc pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some wear, a sticker, a split top seam with some tape, and a partially split spine.)

Donald E WestlakeComedy Is Finished (hardcover) ... Book
Hard Case Crime (UK), 2012. New Copy ... $5.99 25.99
The final novel from the great Donald Westlake – a crime writer who's given us decades of wonderful work – including his classic run of Parker novels penned under the name of Richard Stark! The story's set in the 70s, and features the ill-fated comedian Koo Davis, kidnapped by the People's Revolutionary Army – in a steamy story that quickly spins way out of control! Masterful crime fiction from the man who inspired the films Point Blank and Payback – in a package that lives up to his classic paperback legacy. 351 pages, hardcover. Book
(Please Note – The spine has a remainder mark.)

New Piero PiccioniMondo Albertone ... CD
Studio Uno (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An excellent set of music written by Piero Piccioni for the films of Italian comedian Alberto Sordi! One of Piccioni's cuts for Sordi – the amazing "Mr Dante Fontana" – has been getting a lot of hype over the years from groovy soundtrack collectors, and the rest of this set has a similar feel, and should unlock a large side of Piccioni's work that hasn't been showing up on other sets. Many of the tracks are licensed from out of print EMI soundtracks, and the set also contains a few remixed cuts as well. Titles include "O Rugido Do Leao", "Gitta In Barca", "Blue Sutura", "Sirenette", "You Never Told Me", "Samba Fortuna", "Esculapio", "Lady Love", "Amore, Amore, Amore", and "Per Noi Due Soli". CD

New Redd FoxxLive In Las Vegas ... LP
Loma, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Years before Redd Foxx broke onto the TV mainstream in the 70s, he was already drawing big crowds in Vegas – thanks to wonderfully strong material like you'll hear on this LP! Foxx's presentation here is wonderful – careful enough on topics to reach a crossover audience, but also down to earth too – crossing the tracks with bits of wit and wisdom, all delivered with impeccable timing. The subject matter gets a bit off-color at times, but Redd has a beautiful talent for keeping things clean, even when hinting at the dirty – and it's this balance that really makes the record wonderful – enough care for his choice of words to bring some class to his act, and really set him apart from some simple bawdy comedian.

New Lenny BruceCarnegie Hall – February 4, 1961 ... LP
United Artists, 1961/1972. Used 3LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest work you could ever find by Lenny Bruce! This set is a brilliant re-creation of a live show that Lenny cut at midnight at Carnegie Hall on February 4, 1961. Unlike some of his LPs from the time - which often featured a lot of set routines – this one just has Lenny improvising freely, telling jokes, doing schtick, and bad-rapping on a variety of topics from pills, to homosexuality, to airlines, to the KKK, to VD, to other contemporary comedians. The album's one of the few to really capture Bruce's brilliance as a performer and a thinker – and the spontaneity of the very long recording is astounding. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner and a few creases.)

New Prince PaulPolitics Of Business ... LP
Razor & Tie, 2003. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Prince Paul returns to the hard-hitting, ambitious narrative format of his great Prince Among Thieves LP with this all star effort that features Guru, Masta Ace, Trugoy, Planet Asia, the Beatnuts, Chuck D, Ice T, Jean Grae, Premier, Kardinal Official, Erick Sermon, Sly Boogie, MF Doom, comedians Dave Chappelle & Chris Rock, and others. This time the story line covers the life span of a hip hop record, and the hard truths of a life in the business. The incisively satirical skits that Paul's famous for (he's one of the VERY few cats that can actually pull those things off, possibly because he hires actual comics to play them out) are here in abundance, and so are the darker-edged, lean & popping beats and surprising samples that he does so incredibly well! Another great piece of work from one of the most innovative producers of the last couple of decades. Lots of tracks and skits including "Make Room", "So What", "The Drive By", "Politics Of The Business", "What I Need" and more. Dialogue sample: "C'mon Paul, this is backpacking music. We'll be lucky if we can go double wood with this $h!t. Take back these wackass records and bring me something I can sell!" Highly recommended! Plus, the LP has one bonus track! LP, Vinyl record album
