Allen Ginsberg/William Blake
The Complete Songs Of Innocence And Experience

Allen Ginsberg/William Blake - The Complete Songs Of Innocence And Experience

The original 1970 MGM album on CD and Digital for the first time, plus a second disc of rarities and previously unissued songs. Lester Bangs, in Rolling Stone magazine, said the album was, “like a labor of love, a salute from a young visionary to an ancient sage.” Compiled by producer Pat Thomas (who also worked on 2016’s The Last Word On First Blues box set), this double CD package includes a new essay from Thomas, who tracked down several of the original musicians (never before interviewed) for this project uncovering rare session photos as well.
