Album Remarks & Appraisals:

This is a reissue of the definitive first anthology of American Sound Poetry, using speech as music. This important release, formerly available only on LP, of which rare copies have sold for up to $200, includes the first-ever computer speech pieces by Charles Dodge done on a mainframe computer. Note: Piece by John Giorni includes explicit lyrics and is X-rated.
