Reads On The Road CD

Jack Kerouac Reads On the Road is a compilation album by American novelist and poet Jack Kerouac

The centrepiece of the record is a 28-minute recitation by Kerouac from his book On the Road that was recorded on an acetate disc in the 1950s but thought lost for decades, and had only recently been rediscovered at the time of release

Other tracks feature Kerouac singing renditions of Jazz hits from the 1920s, '30s and '40s alongside songs and poems of his own composition

The album closes with a cover of Kerouac's track "On the Road" (itself included earlier on the disc) performed by Tom Waits with Primus
