“This is Charles Bukowski. Well, let me sit here and drink some beer.” So begins the writer/novelist/poet’s 1972 reading. There is plenty of beer drinking, belching, explicit language, and poetry on the record, with Bukowski, who’s believed to have inspired Hank Moody’s alcoholic, womanizing character in the TV series Californication, bluntly sharing his views on “perversions, poverty, drunkenness, gambling, bodily functions” and other gloomier corners of life. Originally released in 1980 on Takoma, this 'ashtray' colored reissue is limited, so act quick if you’re a fan of the true American literary iconoclast.
