AC's intrigue

"Anyone who is open minded enough to appreciate Spoken Word art really should take notice of this guy. He's WAY out there, and I think we all need to get WAY out there every now and then. I first heard this on CD when it came out. I listened to the whole thing and it just pulled me in. I'd never heard anything like it before in spoken word or elsewhere. It was closer I think to poetry than to stories. In each track, Mr. Codrescu paints a picture for the listener to digest and interpret. Most of the tracks have a serious message, but I like the way he uses sarcam, cynicism and humor to get the point across. Some of my favorite tracks are the one about Burger King, also the track where he has a conversation with his son about drugs, and the one about being a bored kid in the gymnasium school in Romania. Actually they're all really good. Anyhow, the reason I checked in here is because somewhere in my last move I lost the CD and I'm finally getting around to replacing it. Unfortunately it looks as though it isn't available as CD anymore. Oh well. I'll have to settle for a tape. It's better than not having it in my collection at all."
