The Oul' Howl

Here's one for fans of UberBeat Allen Ginsberg - an online release for an early (1956) recording of a youthful Ginsberg reading a draft of Howl at Reed College, Portland, Oregon. He runs out of steam a bit near the end - but, be the hokey, its an amazing archive piece of this definitive poem of the modern era in all its protopsychedelic glory. Enjoy! With thanks to Barry Miles over at the Guardian Arts blog.
