Red vinyl album in original sleeve and cover with lyric sheet. Fantasy 7002, Spoken Word Series. Kenneth Rexroth and Lawrence Ferlinghetti in High Fidelity (mono) backed by Bob Lewis on Bass, Bruce Lippincott on Tenor Saxophone, Bill Weisjahns on Piano, Sonny Wayne on Drums, and Dickie Mills on Trumpet. Rexroth: “Thou Shalt Not Kill”, Ferlinghetti:“Autobiography”, “The Statue of St. Francis” and “Junkman’s Obbligato”. Ralph J. Gleason provides the liner notes (the entire back album cover) and credits LF with "perhaps the first poem in the English language written specifically to be read with jazz accompaniment". The vinyl is a lovely transparent red and appears to be very fine, the sleeve is worn at the edges, the lyric sheet creased with toning at the fold, the cover lightly rubbed, minor wear at corners.
