5.0 out of 5 stars A Mindblowing Debut recording December 17, 1999
Format:Audio CD
The shot heard round the world. The debut recording from the late genius Bill Burroughs. 8 brillant recordings without the distraction of any background noise. Burroughs reads from his classic novels Naked Lunch, and nova express with his usual laid back style. Thought provoking and influential even 30 years later. Very likely to be the best recordings ever made by this master. The new packaged cd includes extensive liner notes, and many great photos. This is the stuff, baby!

5.0 out of 5 stars Scary and compelling August 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
When Burroughs was alive you never knew where you'd see him emerging from, whether it be a haunted house or Lincoln Center or the direst shooting gallery. Somehow he kept it all together while managing to hone one of the most distinctive voices in show business. Ably produced, CALL ME BURROUGHS features the novelist as he slips in and out of many characters; one wonders whether the monologuist Ruth Draper might have been an early influence on the young, wealthy St Louis-born heir slash ne'er do well, for such is the power of his "Method Acting" that you might well feel that he was possessed by the various spooks and rednecks who populate his great novels NAKED LUNCH or NOVA EXPRESS.

He cuts through the linear and distorts the line of reality like a seismograph perfectly attuned to the stupendous changes in the political and social mores of the century he lived through, and this CD will alternately bore you and transfix you. There are other recordings, but this might be the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Naked Burroughs June 17, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Superb monotone ramblings crawl out of the mind of Burroughs on this no frills recording. There is no music to distract you from the spoken word. Lovely stories for the whole family.
