Don't just read poetry, hear to it!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Howl (Audio CD)
This CD comprises of Ginsberg reading a selection of the poems from Ginsberg's Howl & other poems including an unabridged live recording of Howl.
The sound quality is good, the words are audible and clear though it is by no means a pristine studio reading (hence no 5 stars).
By listening to this you can get a sense of the fervour and energy Ginsberg had about his poetry. This is what the Beat Generation was about and you can hear it rather than try and work it out from the biographies and second hand accounts.
This is good stuff and I'd recommed it to anyone.
