Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

Visually dazzling picture disc LP from Fluxus originator & member of the "Darmstadt Circle" of concrete poetry, Emmett Williams. Features poems written 1950-2003, spoken by Emmett, recorded from 2000-2003.

"This tiny sampling of my poetic oeuvre is a very mixed bag, as they say; so much so that I'm inclined to call it a bag of tricks. To confuse matters, some of the poems were meant to be looked at rather than read aloud, and others were intended to be performed with sound effects and slide projections."


Absolutely beautiful picture disc, Limited edition of 150.
