Various Authors - 12 Great Americans

In 1972 the Rotterdam Arts Foundation commissioned Gerard Bellaart, editor of Cold Turkey Press and Carl Weissner, editor of the magazine Klactoveedsedsteen, to compile an LP of contemporary American poetry.The LP was pressed in an edition of 500 copies that summer. The material for the now sought-after record was provided by Carl Weissner, who had recorded readings by leading countercultural poets like Allen Ginsberg, Ed Sanders, Ray Bremser, and Diane di Prima, mostly during a stay in the US between 1966 and 1968. Of the poetry readings on the master tape for the LP some 48 minutes were actually released.The rest of the recordings – some 18 minutes of poetry – has for the greater part remained unpublished.This CD contains all – virtually unedited – readings on the master tape.
