Okay, so the header above is click bait – this is not a Dylan release, but it IS an Allen Ginsberg title featuring songs written and sung by the legendary Beat poet. The material is the product of archivist Pat Thomas spending several years digging through Ginsberg’s tape archive at Stanford University.

The 3 CD box set was originally recorded between 1971 and 1984 and features – get this – Arthur Russell on nearly every song, several with David Amram, plus Don Cherry with a cameo on kazoo. It’s due in May via Omnivore, and you can watch the teaser trailer, below.
