Chapter One: Phil Spector and Lenny Bruce

Phil Spector’s own personal Socrates, Lenny Bruce, reminisces on the unforgettable time he spent with the Tycoon of Teen. Lenny’s tales involve censorship and the long arm of Johnny Law, Frank Zappa and Merv Griffin, and family secrets revealed after late night deli runs. All this and more in the season one premiere of Blood on the Tracks.
