Comedy Is Not Pretty

LP (Item 642369) Warner, 1979 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

(Includes the printed sleeve. Cover has some surface wear, thin stains at the sides, and some marker on front.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Skillet & Leroy

Goodly Soul
Laff, Early 70s. Very Good+
The team of Skillet & Leroy have a decidedly old school approach to comedy – as the routines on here are a bit 50s, compared to the date of the record – but they're always pretty darn great, and were a key part of the Johnny Otis show of the time. The group back up the boys a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
