Audio recordings

Hey People,

It’s a classic experience for whenever you have a little time, a music & poetry-packed interview with yours truly conducted by writer/radio dj bart plantenga.

Enjoy! TFE

ps Listening to this after more than 10 years, I caught a couple of factual errors on my part. E.g., it wasn’t “two guys” who recorded Dylan Thomas and subsequently launched Caedmon Records, but rather two young female college graduates. Plus it was in Saranac Lake, New York (not Branford, Connecticut) where I first heard Jerry Vale’s rendition of the Eddy Arnold song “You Don’t Know Me” and personally lived thru everything he was singing about. The girl was Shirley Smith and the chap she walked away with was named Joe 🙂 There may be other small blips, but they hardly matter. The interview is still a classic!

Wreck 1197 Gangster Poet
Eddie Woods interviewed for two whole hours by bart plantenga
We go retro to a recently unearthed live broadcast dating from 2005 on squat station Radio Patapoe with Gangster Poet Eddie Woods & some of the music & poetry that inspired him: Leonard Cohen, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash, Jerry Vale, Freddy Quinn, Robert Service, Dylan Thomas, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, among others…

This is a lost live broadcast dating from 14 November 2005 on squat-anarcho station Radio Patapoe that I recently stumbled upon in my deepest files… Decided to resurrect it, tweak it, add some relevant material & relaunch it. It features the irrepressible “Gangster Poet,” Eddie Woods, exiled for some 40 years in Europe, mostly Amsterdam, where he created a seminal & essential link between Old & New World, between bohemians & outsider artists & writers and wrote a fair amount of poetry that continues to resonate into the very now. bp

Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Herbert Huncke!

That’s how, nearly 25 years ago, I introduced Herbert for what proved to be
an absolutely riveting storytelling reading at Ins & Outs Press. It went on
nonstop for two solid hours. And when it drew to a close, the packed-house
audience were still asking for more. Now the live recording of that amazing
evening has finally been released as a double-CD album, by Unrequited
Records in San Francisco. It’s called Guilty of Everything, which is also the title of one of Herbert’s books.

Take a look here

Amsterdam residents can score copies of the album from me personally.
Everyone else must order from Unrequited Records. Details for this,
including prices, are on their Order page. Plus you can already hear
selected tracks by going to the Listen page.

Dear All,

My poetry CD Dangerous Precipice was released in 2004. Thirty-three of my own poems, plus me reciting seven poems by three other poets (A. E. Housman, Lord Byron, and Robert W. Service).

That was followed three years later by my recording of Tsunami of Love: A Poems Cycle.

These are now available for online downloading via New Antique Records.
