Best Of The Goon Shows

LP (Item 973962) Parlophone (UK), 1959 — Condition: Very Good

(Original mono pressing. Cover has some edge wear, an index label and some clear tape at the top left, some gloss separation along the spine, a small split in the bottom seam, and some pen and marker on back.)

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.

Lenny Bruce

Thank You Masked Man
Fantasy, Mid 60s/Early 70s. 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

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! The work here is plenty edgey – lots of sharp turns, offbeat ideas, and that sharp wit that makes Bruce one of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1975. Near Mint-
Pryor's really hit his stride here, and made the transition to the mainstream, though he's still a darn funny motherf*#ker. Skits include "Shortage Of White People", "New N*ggers", "Cocaine", "Mudbone", "When Your Woman Leaves You" and "Our ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz & Romantic Places
Atlantic, 1955. Good
Jazz in romantic places, but some pretty groovy ones too – a host of global destinations all referenced in the track selection for the set!

Rotary Connection

Songs
Cadet, 1969. Very Good+
Amazing soul from Rotary Connection – and one of their greatest albums! The "songs" concept has the group working over a bunch of tunes by other folks – and the record features many late 60s rock titles, redone with the group's incredible baroque soul sound.
