Product Description

Complete with original very informative 59 page booklet. Seen elsewhere for £90.00!

This is a great but sadly out of print compilation of spoken word, be bop and jazz classics from the Beat Generation. A real must for all Beat fans, if only because we have excerpts read by Kerouac, Burroughs, Ginsberg and the beautiful Pull my Daisy too. This is an absolutely enchanting and brilliantly observed insight into the Beat movement of the late nineteen-forties to mid nineteen-fifties. Excellent interviews, readings and music. A wonderful introduction to the period.
