Poetry For the Beat Generation - Jack Kerouac & Steve Allen

I knew that Kerouac had appeared on TV comedy host's Steve Allen's show and read poetry to Allen's jazz piano accompaniment, but I had no idea they had recorded an entire album together.  Today, this would be the equivalent of Michel Houellebecq reading from Atomized with Lee Evans playing one of his dreadful songs in the background.  Most instantly digestible track - I'd Rather Be Thin Than Famous.
