He called this session White Funk. Most of the texts were written upon meeting Burroughs, at the time of the invention of the cut-up. The influence that Brion Gysin has had on contemporary music may never be taken fully into account, particularly when he introduced Brian Jones, of the Rolling Stones, to the shepard's music of Joujouka.
Those times were still audacious: the music was created during the sound-checks! Musically, the choice of traditional instruments expresses the desire to be free of machines because, as Burroughs says, 'We ourselves are machines. This recording is Ach Vaderlief - Various - Oud-Hollandse Liedjes of the extraordinary creativity and spontaneity of the musical and artistic scene at that time.
It hasn't aged a bit. Beyond the nostalgia inspired by the invocation of that bygone cultural scene, there is a call for a creativity of which it is difficult to find examples today.
I found this to be a warmer work than I had anticipated. I have listened to Burroughs make so many references to Gysin that I wanted to hear him speak for himself.
If you are interested in the cut-up and it's byproducts then this is fascinating stuff. What is an extra bonus is the music.

The musicians' interventions are tentative at first "Minutes to Go, 1," "Cut-Ups "then, following an extended unaccompanied recitation, the musical aspect of the show takes off. Paradoxically, that minute solo spot for Gysinentitled "Teaching," provides a highlight: the man clearly enjoys revisiting his old writings and, at age 66, definitely has the cultural authority of a teacher.
The sound quality in the first two-thirds of the album is fine. However, things degenerate starting with "Ad Lib," which seems to be an audience recording from the back of the venue.
The sound quality improves for "Impro: 1," but the tapes are badly warped, which makes the track very annoying. The last two tracks sound better and contain, in fact, the best material on the album: the band gels better and Gysin paces his recitation to the groove.
