The Telegraph :: New London, Connecticut

The compact disc audio soundtrack to the book Material Wealth: Mining the Personal Archive of Allen Ginsberg published by Powerhouse Books (distributed by Simon & Schuster) This new Material Wealth CD (an audio soundtrack to the book of the same name) will compactly explain to people, this who the heck Allen Ginsberg was! A lifetime of Allen Ginsberg's love, spirituality, passion, politics, culture, art in poem and song.

Compiled and annotated by Pat Thomas - reissue producer of 2016's 3-CD The Last Word On First Blues which gathers Allen's 1971 to 1984 rock, blues and folk singing/songwriting and the reissue producer of the 2017 The Complete Songs Of Innocence And Experience by William Blake, tuned by Allen Ginsberg - his 1970 album of William Blake poems set to music and sung by Allen with additional recordings of the era including Buddhist mantras.
