“A poetic rage against society’s conformism and capitalism.”
Allen Ginsberg’s Howl And Other Poems is being rereleased in a new vinyl box set, this February by Craft Recordings.
A 1959 recording of Ginsberg reading Howl and Other Poems in Chicago was originally released on translucent red vinyl.
The Howl deluxe box set includes a reissue of this red LP, a replica of the original poetry book published by City Lights in 1956, a photograph of Ginsberg and a booklet with liner notes by Ann Charters and poet Anne Waldman.
Though an unofficial repress was released in March 2017, this is Howl’s first official reissue in over 30 years.
