Philip Glass, composer of symphonies, operas (Einstein on the Beach, Akhnaten, Orphe), film scores (Kundun, Mishima, Koyaanisqatsi), songs, and music for dance is a musician who determined early on that he wanted to compose independently, apart from institutions. That decision has made him a controversial figure among academic musicians, in spite of his rigorous training at Juilliard, and with Nadia Boulanger in Paris. Richard Kostelanetz has gathered a lively and varied collection of writings about Philip Glass's work, along with several interviews and a conversation between Glass and sculptor Richard Serra. The chronology of the works and discography have been updated for the paperback edition.

This annotated version of Ginsberg's classic is the poet's own re-creation of the revolutionary work's composition process—as well as a treasure trove of anecdotes, an intimate look at the poet's writing techniques, and a veritable social history of the 1950s.

The peak of the British Blues Boom - and Savage Cabbage the band who could have rivalled Cream. At their height they were billed with Rory Gallagher's Taste at 'Colonel Barefoot's Rock Garden' where psychedelic lyrics and electric blues ignited the night. The arts became rampant street-culture - roaring like wildfire from '68 to '70: Doc's exotic final school years. A tragic chaotic emotional hiatus thrusts him choicelessly on stage alone, as a weird solo-Bluesman with a maniacal talk-in. He meets John Martyn, Jo Ann Kelly, and Mike Cooper. Art School looms and Doc finds himself standing alone with his Blues harp and faux-resophonic guitar - waiting for Papa Legba at yet another crossroads ... ""Deeply touched by what you wrote"" - John Martyn Praise for Volume one: ""One spectacular sentence after another - a delight to read"" - Deborah Magone ""The taste of some exotic food on the tip of the tongue - unsure of what it is you like - but you must try more and more ..."" - Colin J.
