Leroy DanielsSexmouth ... LP
Laff, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Leroy was an off-color comedian who worked in Johnny Otis' ensemble of the late 60s and early 70s – not as raw as Rudy Ray Moore, but with a strong smattering of mis-hearings and mis-interpretations of situations, all designed to bring out the bawdiest side possible. Routines include "As Long As You're Getting Some", "Another Spot To Shave", "The Canvas Is Spread", "The Zippers In The Mens Room", and "Pussy In The Well". LP, Vinyl record album

Lena DunhamNot That Kind Of Girl – A Young Woman Tells You What She's Learned (hardcover) ... Book
Random House, 2014. New Copy ... $5.99 28.00
Lena Dunham's always been a very outspoken person – both in her work, and in person – but she maybe hits a new sort of height here, in a book that's partly frank memoir, partly sharp-penned essays – all at a level that's maybe even smarter and more focused than her work in Girls! Dunham really puts it all out there – herself, her politics, her experiences, and her hopes for better solutions – at a level that's maybe even more progressive overall than her work on the screens big and small. Way better than the usual "television comedian writing a book" – very much in a class of its own. 265 pages, hardcover. Book

Redd FoxxLive In Las Vegas ... LP
Loma, Late 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Jackie GleasonRomantic Moods Of Jackie Gleason (2CD set) ... CD
Capitol, 1950s/1960s. Used 2CD ... $6.99
Sublime instrumental work from the great Jackie Gleason – a beautifully-done collection of his classic sides for Capitol Records – music that's definitely steeped in the romantic moods promised in the title! Jackie's got a way with a tune that few other leaders can touch – cool, shimmering horn parts that often have the lush hues of a Kenton arrangement, but which come across with a lot more warmth overall – just the sort of music to set the mood back in the day – and a really strong contrast to Gleason's dynamic persona as a comedian. The package has a beautiful cover, and features 40 tunes that include "It All Depends On You", "Mystery Street", "If He Walked Into My Life", "I'm In The Mood For Love", "Out Of Nowhere", "The Best Is Yet To Come", "The Moonlight", "That Certain Party", "Glamour", "Ruby", "Lover Man/Smile", "The Girl From Ipanema", "Moon River", and "Days Of Wine & Roses".

✨✧ Lenny BruceCarnegie Hall – February 4, 1961 ... LP
United Artists, 1961/1972. Used 3LP Gatefold ... Temporarily 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 some edge wear.)

✨✧ Patton OswaltSilver Screen Fiend – Learning About Life From An Addiction To Film (hardcover) ... Book
Simon & Schuster, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Most folks know Patton Oswalt as a comedian and actor, but he's also a hell of a film fanatic too – and charges cinema as the main influence for everything he's created on his own! In fact, Oswalt was so dedicated to film at one point, that he was a "silver screen fiend" – often seeing as many as four films in a day, often in a theatrical setting – feeding heavily on the liveliest of arts, and keeping a diary in the process! The book has Patton going back over his most fanatical film years, recounting not just the movies themselves, but his own obsession with them – all at a level that's as smart and witty as his standup work, and maybe a fair bit more intellectual, too. The whole thing's a very surprising read, and quite rewarding to both fans of films, and Oswalt's other work – and there's a fair bit here that might well apply to the music and record-obsessed too. 222 pages, hardcover. Book
(Small remainder mark on spine.)

✨✧ Macklay/Reminick/Haydn/Fisher-LochheadSerious Business – Spektral Quartet (CD/blu-ray) ... CD
Sono Luminus, 2016. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful record from this important string quartet – a group who strike a fine balance between being playful and playing powerfully, and who have a really tremendous ear for unusual repertoire too! The cover and title might seem a bit gimmicky, but Spektral Quartet are far from that – as they really grab us right away with their unusual sense of string textures, and the greater sonic possibilities of the quartet – working here on some material commissioned especially for the group, and other compositions that they really transform in their performance. The set begins with the captivating "Many Many Cadences" – a piece that's exactly as the title describes – then moves into the "Ancestral Mousetrap", a suite of tracks that also features some text from Russell Edson performed by the group as they play. The album then makes an abrupt shift to Haydn's "String Quartet Op 33 No 2 – The Joke" – which is handled by the group with a style that's faithful to the writing, but also very individual as well – especially as it's followed by "Hack" – a long suite of very short tracks, which follows the "joke" thematically, as each section is titled after a comedian – "Sarah Silverman", "Lenny Bruce", "Dick Gregory", and so on – but all with individual performances that extrapolate the ideas of those performers through a modern string quartet interpretation.

(Features the album on CD, with bonus blu-ray audio.)
