Thanks to arowanas44 for the clip. This is another example of how to treat text as an image, creating a very powerful vehicle for expression through tiers of meaning.

I first read about Ken Nordine years ago when a music critic was comparing Tom Waits’ spoken stories on “Nighthawks at the dinner” with Nordine’s deep, intelligent, amusing  poems.

The album “Colors” was released in 1966. To me it sounds as if coming from across a great divide, but it’s so mystic in a way, I’m compelled to say it might as well be from the future. This is the sort of stuff you can’t listen to just once, because it “wont’ rub off ” that way.
