Call Me Burroughs.

Paris: The English Bookshop, 1965. LP record. Burroughs' first record release. Photograph of Burroughs on front of sleeve by Harriet Crowther (sic). Liner notes by Emmett Williams (Fluxus artist who participated in the Domaine Poétique group) and Jean-Jacques Lebel (who first met Burroughs at a reading from his work in progress, 'The Naked Lunch', in the cellar below Gaït Frogé's Librairie Anglaise in 1958).

According to Burroughs, the record originated from an idea by Gaït Frogé, and it contains Burroughs reading extracts from 'The Naked Lunch' on side 1 and from 'The Soft Machine' and 'Nova Express' on side 2. The tapes were recorded at the Librairie Anglaise on rue de Seine using Brion Gysin's Uher tape machine and edited by Ian Sommerville in Paris.
