Richard Brautigan: poet, author, and generally enlightned dude
The project (readings from Trout Fishing In America, In Watermelon Sugar, and others) was started in late 1968 and planned as Zapple #3. The master tape had even been prepared, just as Allen Klein shut down the Beatles' ultra-vanity label to save money. Harvest released this version in the fall of 1970.
