Saying shit I shouldn't since 1977.
Just in the nick of time Zach (though, to be precise you're two days late.) I was about to give you a severe electronic tongue-lashing for missing this one. In old Abe's honour I listened to the Folkways recording I have from the late 50s of Klein reading his bi-lingual classic "Montréal" in a basso-profundo at McGill. Heirloom's nice, but let me hear you try that one!
I've been meaning to do the recording for a couple of days, but figured it would sound better without the random vocalizings of my son as backup; had a couple of hours in the house by myself today.I'd love to do "Montreal," but there doesn't seem to be a text of it on-line and my copy of Klein's collected is in an attic on the other coast. Technically, the poem's more macaronic than bilingual. 'Tis a bilinguefaction!
