More Allen Ginsberg!

Allen Ginsberg-Songs-Of-Innocence.jpg

Ginsberg's, The Complete Songs Of Innocence And Experience is being released today for the first time on CD & Digital.  In the June 11th 1970 issue of Rolling Stone, Lester Bangs reviewed the LP:

"The distinctive sinuousness of Allen's reedy voice is one of the set's most compelling qualities. Nothing here sounds strained or pretentious, which should make it the last word in concept albums. It sounds, rather, like a labor of love, a salute from a young visionary to an ancient sage, executed with delicacy and charm in a vocal style reminiscent of an Anglo-American muezzin."

The fine folks at Omnivore Recordings have also included a bunch of rare and previously unissued material in the set.  Ommmmm.
