Frontier Hotel
)
14) Pearl Bailey & Jack Benny/Tropicana Hotel & Casino
15) Las Vegas pt. 2/Pearl Bailey/Lenny Bruce
(in spite of his Vegas termination, George Carlin was lucky compared to the disastrous relationship between Sin
City and Lenny Bruce. In this rare clip, Lenny talks of his very brief time on the Vegas stage before he got stomped
and kick outta town, thanks to a fire extinguisher and
Pearl Bailey. This is from the brilliant box set, Let The Buyer
Beware!
)
16) Luck Be A Lady/Frank Sinatra
(
yup, I am being sarcastic by putting Sinatra after Lenny, but this town is always been rough around the edges for
certain personalities. Anyways, this is the better known album version of the same song I have from volume 2…and
the same one they play for the
Bellagio Fountains)

(
Vegas & stewardess….how swinging 70’s can you get outside of a disco at the Playboy Mansion!!)
