Jack Kerouac Historic Recordings CD

Product information

Our claim; this is one of the greatest albums ever! It features Jack Kerouac, one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century, the seminal influence of the Beat Generation which was a Bohemian movement that caught the imagination of the American youth in the 1950's and was the pre-cursor for the Hippy movement of the 1970's. The fiction and poetry of Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs introduced the American youth to a previously unheard of anti-establishment, hedonistic and Bohemian way of life......and things have never been the same since.
 
This album features Kerouac reading a selection of his poetry and prose; some with a jazz accompaniment, some with a solo piano accompaniment and some just feature Kerouac on his own.
 
The Great Audio Moments Series titles are single CD albums but in the case of this album we have decided that, to keep the integrity of Kerouac's work intact, we couldn't edit it down so have included all available tracks on two discs.
