Old Pond (A Tip of the Hat to Basho)

Remembering Basho (and remembering Allen's discussion of haiku featured on this blog these past few days - Old Pond", (originally appearing on the "First Blues" LP recording of 1983, and re-released in CD form, in 2006, on Water Records - please support the independent record companies and buy the CD!),

with Allen joyfully warbling along and Peter Orlovsky on banjo.

A live version of the song (from New York's 1978 Nova Convention) may be listened to here

  1. I like his voice whether he's reading or singing. Really charming.
    And that Old Pond haiku is my favorite of Basho.
    Great to see the great poet inspired another great beyond centuries.
