LENNY BRUCE United Artists LP Released 1967
Over the past 40 years, this material has been out many times under many different names but this LP was the first release of Lenny Bruce recordings from his February 1961 concert at Carnegie Hall. Although this is less than 30 minutes of the close to 2 hour performance, the bits are all five star Lenny at his best. Released on the United Artists label in 1967 it was simply titled "Lenny Bruce" and featured back cover liner notes by Paul Krassner, who edited Lenny's autobiography.
