On a hitchhiking trip through the Pacific Northwest in 1956, Allen Ginsberg and fellow Beat poet Gary Snyder stopped at Snyder's alma mater, Oregon's own Reed College, where the earliest recording of Ginsberg's seminal work Howl took place (you'd think it would have been at San Francisco's City Lights Books, huh?). For the first time ever, Omnivore Recordings will release it online. A special limited-edition vinyl version will also be sold through Omnivore's web store and the Reed College bookstore.
