Accept no substitutes! This is the real deal! These are the legendary sessions that were tied up in the courts for decades and are now available again. If you're a fan of Beat Generation poetry you can't get better than these. These recordings have Jack reading sections of his own works with minimal musical accompaniment. That accompaniment only helps the atmosphere of the readings and never gets in the way of them. These are Beat readings (not "Beatnik" comedy) and are the truest expression of that time and that art form. Jack reads mainly from his poetry and only short snippets of his books (so if your looking for a long reading of On The Road, you're looking in the wrong place) but you wont find a better place to discover the greatness of his poetry.
