Thank You Masked Man

LP (Item 22884) Fantasy, Mid 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Very Good+

Issued after Lenny's death, but a record that contains some of his best bits ever! In fact, the later date of the album probably allowed Fantasy to get away with some rawer material, so you'll hear more of the "true" side of Lenny – especially on the album's live tracks. We think this stuff is pure genius, and it's more than just comedy – it's verbal improvisation on a scale that would match the best jazz soloist. As proof, listen to tracks like "Fat Boy", "The Sound", and "Thank You, Masked Man".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some wear and aging.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
