Classic collaboration in which Steve Allen's "unobtrusive, yet authoritative" piano accompanies Kerouac's reading of his own poetry. Liner notes by Gilbert Millstein. Originally intended for production by Dot Records, whose president stopped pressing and distribution on the grounds that Kerouac's work was in bad taste, not suitable for children, and not "clean family entertainment."
