Kerouac: Kicks Joy Darkness ()


Fourteen of the 25 tracks on this 79˝-minute disc are drawn from Jack Kerouac's poetry book Pomes All Sizes; the rest come from his novels (nothing from On the Road, though) and letters, with some unpublished work is also included. The readers range from Kerouac's contemporaries, William Burroughs, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and Allen Ginsberg, and literary offspring like Hunter S. Thompson, to such poet-rockers as Jim Carroll and Patti Smith, and a long list of rock stars including Michael Stipe, Steven Tyler, and Eddie Vedder ...
