Allen on May Day

May First. Three classic postings revisited. First, our posting from last year. Allen triumphantly performs his own special version of the Fifth Internationale.



Followed by King of May, "Kral Majales" - Allen was famously voted May King in 1965 at the height of the short-lived historic Prague Spring. Here he is, on his return to the Czech Republic, almost thirty years later (and renditions both in Czech and in English of his famous poem)



And, finally, OWS, our past October's "Allen's Revolutionary Musings" posting (including a link to his illuminating mid'90's Drunken Boat Interview)
Allen on Mayday. His spirit lives on.
