Great work from one of the most compelling poets to record for Folkway Records in the 70s – the always-righteous Nancy Dupree, working here in a really bad-rapping set of work!

One of the coolest records we've ever heard from beat legend Allen Ginsberg – not just a record of his famous poetry, but one that also features him on harmonium as well! There's a really weird, dark sound to the record – as Ginsberg plays harmonium and sings/speaks his own words ... read more CD

A beautiful post-Atlantic album from Nikki Giovanni – much more intimate and personal than her better known work, with only Nikki's voice throughout the album – heard on a number of shorter poems!

Celluloid, 1985. Used ... $4.99
A later album from the Last Poets – recorded after their classic run in the 70s, but still pretty nice overall!
