Wm. S. Burroughs - Call Me Burroughs

1965 - The English Bookshop, Paris (reissued in 1995 by Rhino Word Beat)

1.) Bradley the Buyer
2.) Meeting of International Conference of Technological Psychiatry
3.) The Fish Poison Con
4.) Thing Police Keep All Board Room Reports
5.) Mr. Bradley Mr. Martin Hear Us Through the Hole in Thin Air
6.) Where You Belong
7.) Inflexible Authority
8.) Uranian Willy

This is the very first spoken word album the maestro recorded. Made and released in Paris just as the Beat movement was starting to take off and Naked Lunch was beginning to get published.
Fortunately Burroughs doesn't require much introduction because I never have much to say on these things. (here's a Wiki if you need it) Y'know, like, listen to it and come to your own conclusions, ok?

Excellent. I just re-read Cities of the Red Night.
