Allen Ginsberg

Stolen from Wikipedia-fix it...
The poet Allen Ginsberg believed the poems of William Blake were originally intended to be sung, and that through study of the rhyme and metre of the works, a Blakean performance could be approximately replicated. In 1969, he conceived, arranged, directed, sang on, and played piano and harmonium on this album of songs.
