beat generation ballads re-remembered

Began as digital sandpit experiment at this very blogspot, now turned into commodity on great University of London Veer label, stored among collection of fave 10" vinyl albums like Sonny boy Williamson's LE GRAND CHANTEUR DE BLUES ET SPÉCIALISTE DE L'HARMONICA "JAZZ CLASSICS" No 17 .
"Hey, wait a moment, there's no wax inside this bleedin' album. No disk. Nowt to download. You call this poetry?", says Mick Weller. "Looks more like blown-up parody of insert booklet stuck inside retro nineties cd to me."

"You gotta imagine wax, Mick. "
033⅓ MJ Weller – ‘Beat generation Ballads’ (Veer, 2011)

Mixed, engineered & produced by Stephen Mooney and Will Rowe.
15GBP direct from Veer and all good record shops

'Give me the music makers...'

Tuli Kupferberg (1923-2010) does it better
