Sick Humor Of Lenny Bruce

LP (Item 30320) Fantasy, Late 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 44

Possibly the most famous of all the Lenny Bruce albums on Fantasy – as it's the one that has a crazy image of Lenny having a picnic in a cemetery! Lenny's genius is still in formation here – but the record does have some great moments, like the oft-sampled "Religions Inc", and the crazy song "Psychopathia Sexualis", a great example of the way that Lenny used to mix music in his live performances!

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Philles, Mid 60s. Sealed
A fantastic album by Lenny, and a rare release on Phil Spector's Philles label. Spector was a big fan of Bruce, and this release – with its title reference to his arrest history ("out again"), and its graphic image of him on a toilet in a yard next to a statue, is one of the oddest ...

A stripped down version of a record that was also issued in 3LP format, and which features some real gems from Lenny's 1961 concert at Carnegie Hall.

Fantasy, 1960. Very Good
1960 nightclub recordings from Lenny Bruce – done at a time when he was really opening up stylistically, and taking on a host of themes that really tell a tale of the times!

Fontana, 1969. Very Good
This is the US issue of the 1969 album that Serge and Jane Birkin cut together, and every track is a groovy French classic, of the sort that made Serge a legend!
