William Burroughs was in and out of London from the mid-50s through to 1974 and for several years quite settled in a flat near Piccadilly. During this latter time he developed and refined the techniques he used for creating cut-ups.

Recorded in Duke Street c1968, the taped recordings were then passed on to Brion Gysin in Paris where it remained in his archive until 1998. This is the first readily available edition of a hypnotic and meditative recording that examines the hidden power of words.

Edited down to 46 minutes and comprising the core of the original recording, this edition makes the hypnotic recordings available on vinyl for the first time and includes a 12”x12” insert with an essay by Ben Harper

The clear vinyl edition also features previously unseen photos of Burroughs, the cover taken by Harriet Crowder in her Hammersmith flat during a drug experiment.
