An incredible Lenny Bruce concert from the mid 60s – recorded before a very friendly Berkeley audience, at a time when Bruce was being heavily persecuted by the authorities for his groundbreaking style of humor. Although many of Bruce's performances during this time lapsed into a dullness brought on by a sense of persecution, this one's still razor-sharp, and is filled with Bruce's incredibly insightful wit, made even more incredible here through live improvisation. Fantastic stuff – and proof that the man was a true genius! (Vinyl plays with a short click on the first track of the first side.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
