Lenny, circa 1955 and at the Idler Coffeehouse, Cambridge MA 1973.
The Idler was a favorite performing spot for such folk luminaries as Geoff Bartley, Paul Rishell,
Spider John Koerner, and Ric Ocasek & Ben Orr, later of The Cars.
Lenny played there as a regular for about eight years.

Review in the February 4, 1974 issue of the University of Massachusetts
student newspaper of Lenny's performance at the Idler.

A Rant: Letter to the Editor Lenny sent to the Boston Phoenix
in 1971 complaining about a well known reviewer on its staff.

In the mid-1970s, Lenny opened several shows for
Carolyn Hester, back then a nationally recognized folksinger.
She is still a lot prettier than Lenny.
