"A bit of previously unreleased tape has just surfaced, seemingly from an archive of Allen Ginsberg recordings, that features Ginsberg and Bob Dylan talking backstage..."

"... on December 11, 1965 in San Francisco, and then Dylan performing an entire concert with a band. It comes via Dylan fan and YouTuberist Keith Gubitz...."

Weird to listen to Bob Wright with Mickey Kaus and then, immediately after, Bob Dylan and Allen Ginsberg.

Booh! Mr. Ginsberg made it okay for any no talent hack to pass himself off as a poet.
James Dickey, a pretty cool guy, composed a good parody of Mr. Ginsberg by just jumbling together random newspaper headlines.

Don't worry you'll always have the Nuge.

Well, I don't know where they come from but they sure do come

I hope they comin' for me

And I don't know how they do it but they sure do it good
I hope they're doin' it for free


They give me cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever

Well, the first time that I got it I was just ten years old
I got it from some kitty next door

An' I went to see the doctor and he gave me the cure
I think I got it some more

They give me cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever

I got a bad scratch fever
The cat scratch fever

I skimmed thru "On the Road" a few weeks ago. Turns out the guy who wrote it lived with his mom.

Looking at the comments on youtube, I'd say many can hear something, but try as I might, with my admittedly poor hearing, all I can hear is mumbled conversation.

Bob Dylan should really do something about these leaks.
