What I Was Arrested For

LP (Item 42875) Douglas, Early 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold
A repackaged version of the album To Is A Preposition, Come Is A Verb – a 70's issue of material that was too raunchy to be released in the 60's! This is Lenny Bruce at his finest, with some of the best little bits that made him famous (including many of the ones that were used in the movie Lenny.) The recordings are live, and capture Bruce with that spontaneous riffing mode that was the best side of his genius – doing routines that include "Dirty Toilet", "To Come", "Tits & Ass", and "I Just Do It And That's All".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Philles, Mid 60s. Very Good+
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasy, 1958. Very Good+
Not necessarily a record of interviews – as the title might make you think – but one of Bruce's best records for Fantasy! The album's got some very edgey bits that approximate his live material, and which take the best part of his cleaner act, and transfer them well to record. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasy, 1959. Near Mint-
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", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Laff, 1976. Good
A classic in the "alternative Bicentennial" genre from off-color ventriloquist party act Richard & Willie – with a mix of themes that bad-raps American history, and also manages to cover some righteous 70s topics as well! Routines include "200 Years Of Freedom", " ... LP, Vinyl record album
