Ginsberg Recordings Holy Soul Jelly Roll

Ginsberg Recordings brand-new digitalized re-released recordings of Holy Soul Jelly Roll is our focus today. All four sets are now available on i-Tunes:


Steven Taylor’s piece in Reality Sandwich is an absolute must-read -“When I first heard his songs, at the performance in the spring of 1976 where I sat in on guitar, I found them fascinating”, he writes, “It was the words, the brilliance and wit of them. Words, obviously, came to him easily. He could improvise blues lyrics and rhymes endlessly..”  “Holy Soul Jelly Roll” is.. “a testament to and an instance of the return of poetry to the voice, (and) it’s also testament to new media”.

Last night’s official launch of this, Ginsberg Recordings’ initial recording, was, we’re happy to report, a resounding success (great readings by everyone – we’ll be reporting on this more next week) – and more (much more) to follow.
