Underwater Poetry Festival
Recorded in Salt Lake City, Utah on October 5, 1974; produced for release by Charles Potts. "This never-before released recording of a 1974 poetry reading by world famous 20th century American poet Charles Bukowski (1922-1993) is one you'll have to stuff in your CD player as soon as you get it. In 1974, the intrepid Bukowski journeyed from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City to give a featured reading at the Underwater Poetry Festival, along with Alta, Ricardo Sanchez, and Andy Clausen. The recording of the reading given in the social work auditorium of the University of Utah survived in the archives of the Reverend Sherm W. Clow, President at the time of the renowned Litmus Inc., producer of the festival. It includes more than 20 poems with a table of contents, some introductory and closing patter by MC Charles Potts, and a reproduction of the poster from the UPF is the menu on the CD. Bukowski was just beginning to achieve the lasting fame that would come to him in the next two decades. Hear the man at his droll and noteworthy best."
