Prufrock recitation

Post by Cassie » Sun Mar 16, 2014 2:56 pm

Someone shared a link on Facebook to you reciting "Prufrock" as a poem. It was really lovely done that way. Your style kind of reminded me of Bob Dylan's "Last Thoughts On Woody Guthrie". I was wondering if you've ever heard it. If not you should look it up. It's really good. It was on one of his bootleg series volumes.

Cheers. Thought you meant it was a recitation of Eliot's Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock (Frank recited The Dry Salvages a while back!) This is cool though.

Sorry, no, I meant Frank's own song.
But seriously, if you are a Dylan fan or a Woody Guthrie fan, check this out. I just think their deliveries are similar in a way. I hope the link I used works.

This is really quite stunning. "Love Ire & Song" would be another that would be just as or more powerful in spoken form.

I'd also love to hear Frank put some classic poetry to music the way Phil Ochs performed "The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes and "The Bells" by Edgar Allen Poe. Also that typed out "Edgar Allen Pie" which is pretty funny.

He did the same at the Flagstaff, AZ show last night. It was pretty cool to hear. I think it may have been a change-up as the Coachella/Ellen/Phoenix/Tucson/Flagstaff (Elevation 7000 ft) run took a toll on his voice, though he seemed to power through after a couple of songs from my vantage point.

It was fun to hear after hearing the song at the Phoenix show.

I certainly hope he didn't get too hurt by "get(ting) his drink on" after the show as he promised from stage. 7000 ft elevation has a tendency to bite back pretty hard when imbibing. Even Denver is downhill from Flag. :)
