Lenny Bruce/Lawrence SchillerWhy Did Lenny Bruce Die? ... LP
Probe/Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $7.99
A pretty interesting little record – an audio documentary on the story of Lenny Bruce, featuring narration, music, interviews, and snippets of dialogue by Bruce! The format is pretty great, and surprisingly open about some of the issues at hand. The set is divided up into "The Rise" and "The Fall" – and features interviews with Paul Krassner, Tim Hardin, and members of Bruce's family, as well as his critics. Nice gatefold cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Mickey KatzMickey Katz & His Orchestra ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good ... $7.99
Mickey Katz's first full LP for Capitol – a collection of early singles, many of which were parodies of famous songs of the time, redone with a borscht belt twist! The instrumentation features quite a bit of Mickey's clarinet – and when he's not camping it up in a Spike Jones mode, he's got a sound that's actually quite revolutionary – steeped in the traditions of both swing and klezmer, with an approach that's still quite influential today. Titles include "Herring Boats", "Sound Off", "Yiddish Mule Train", "Duvid Crockett", "The Baby The Bubbe & You", and "Borscht Riders In The Sky". LP, Vinyl record album
(Turquoise label pressing. Cover has a half split top seam, some wear, and a bit of pencil on back.)

Woody AllenStandup Years (Woody Allen/Woody Allen Vol 2/Third Woody Allen Album) ... CD
Colpix/Razor & Tie, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
Incredible early standup work by Woody Allen – a lost side of his genius, represented here on three rare albums from the 60s! If you only know Allen as a director, or actor on screen, this work is a real revelation – recorded at a time when Woody was a young, talented comedy writer for television and just getting initial exposure as a comedian – but already graced with the kind of self-aware wit that we love so much in his funny films from the 70s! There's a freshness here that still stands out – and the package features two full albums issued by the Colpix label, one more issued by Capitol, and some bonus audio excerpts that feature Allen speaking about his standup years.
