The poet, vocalist, and songwriter Gil Scott-Heron is both the descendant of the African griots and the forefather of rap. In the early '70s, he boldly proclaimed that ''the revolution will not be televised,'' and in the '80s he warned us of the ''New World Order'' with his prophetic and satirical single, ''B Movie.'' The gifted filmmaker Robert Mugge filmed the controversial artist in performance at the now-defunct Wax Museum in Washington, D.C., in 1982. Mugge alternates between the electrifyi

Unavailable on CD in the U.S., this is a reissue of Crane's Grammy-winning 1971 album. Similar to & thanks to the popularity of Baz Luhrman's 'Everybody's Free', the spoken word recording is based on a 1927 poem by Max Ehrmann that hippies clung to in the '60s. The rest of the tracks on the long player continue along the same touchy-feely self-help theme, with musical accompaniments varying from Native American vibes to gospel to rock to opera. 12 tracks (though only 10 are actually printed on t

You've heard Ken Nordine before, his immediate baritone resonating like the voice of God in countless radio and TV commercials, hawking everything from Taster's Choice to Murine. In the late 1950s, though, Nordine created ''word jazz''--a combination of storytelling, sound painting, and pre-beat improvisation--as a less commercial, more personal outlet for his natural speaking talents. Best gathers the brightest of his four initial albums--material that found him somewhere between the prosody of

Inspired by writer Langston Hughes, one of the driving forces behind the Afro-centrism of the sixties, Scott-Heron put his first texts to music. He tried his hand at the keyboard in rock groups and published The Nigger Factory.

The San Pedro, California, audience is the hostage referred to in the title of this mid-1980s recording, but clearly they love every minute of it. It's indicative of this infamous, lowlife-lovin' poet's no-nonsense, tough-talking skill that for half the recording the crowd is nearly pissing themselves with laughter. Hostage has to be one of the rowdiest poetry records ever released, which makes sense considering how drunk Bukowski plainly is. The drink never gets in the way of his delivery, the

A Child's Garden of Songs: The Poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson in Song As a young Scotsman, the famous author Robert Louis Stevenson suffered a childhood of illness and frailty. As a result, Stevenson developed a rich inner life as well as an author's keen sense of observation. Much of A Child's Garden of Verses comes from this period of relative infirmity. And on A Child's Garden of Songs we most agreeably find these same charmingly insightful words set to music, sung and played by a cast of s
