1 Hunter S. Thompson Balance of Terror Live Lecture 1977Thompson, Hunter S. Last Word Press 2011 CD_AUDIO

New 

Rescued from the dustbins of history, this 2 disc rollicking live lecture from Boulder, Colorado in 1977 features Thompson at his peak and is quite informative and entertaining. A must have for the Gonzo nut, with a priceless Q & A from the students. The back of the liner notes is hard to make out, but the whole track list is available online. I'll try to improve upon it in future versions. These are just two burned CDs, nothing fancy.

2 Looking for Freedom: A Celebration of the Music of Jon Fromer (PM Audio)Fromer, Jon; Fromer, Reed PM Press 1629631248 / 9781629631240 Audiobook CD

New 

1629631248 Brand New CD wrapped in plastic; satisfaction guaranteed. Looking for Freedom: A Celebration of the Music of Jon Fromer is a tribute to the San Francisco folk/blues artist whose soulful singing style and original songs about work, love, struggle, and triumph helped fuel movements for peace, human rights, and social justice for nearly fifty years. From marching in Selma in 1965 to his final journey to the School of the Americas Watch protest in late 2012, Jon Fromer (1946?2013) lent constant musical support to people?s efforts to build more free, just, and peaceful societies. He performed to devoted fans in packed concert halls across the U.S. and in Europe?but was always most at home leading the singing contingent of a rally, a march, or a picket line. Looking for Freedom showcases thirteen of Jon Fromer?s songs?a combination of his most beloved signature pieces and some previously unrecorded material?performed and produced by his nephew and longtime accompanist Reed Fromer. Fan favorites include ?My Feet Are Tired,? a rousing tribute to Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott, ?Bessie,? a recounting of the tragic fate of blues legend Bessie Smith, and ?Harvest of My Soul,? Jon?s last completed song, which invokes one?s magnified appreciation of the joys of life when time becomes a more precious commodity. Also included are four archival recordings of Jon himself, including two selections from his live concert CD, We Do the Work. The final song is Jon?s own rendition of ?Harvest of My Soul,? recorded just five days before he died.

3 Songs of Freedom (PM Audio)James Connolly Songs of Freedom Band PM Press 1604868317 / 9781604868319 Audiobook CD

New 

1604868317 Brand New Audio CD! Satisfaction guaranteed. Songs of Freedom is the name of the songbook edited by James Connolly and published in 1907. Connolly's introduction is better known than the collection for which it was written, containing his oft-quoted maxim: ?Until the movement is marked by the joyous, defiant singing of revolutionary songs, it lacks one of the most distinctive marks of a popular revolutionary movement, it is the dogma of a few and not the faith of the multitude.? Though most of the songs were of Irish derivation, the songbook itself was published in New York and directed to the American working class, explicitly internationalist in its aims. Songs of Freedom is a celebration of the life and work of James Connolly, the Irish revolutionary socialist martyred by the British government for his role in the Easter Rising of 1916. It is at once a collection of stirring revolutionary songs and a vital historical document. For the first time in a hundred years, readers will find the original Songs of Freedom as well as the 1919 Connolly Souvenir program published in Dublin for a concert commemorating Connolly's birth. Both are reproduced exactly as they originally appeared, providing a fascinating glimpse of the workers' struggle at the beginning of the last century. To complete the picture is included the James Connolly Songbook of 1972, which contains not only the most complete selection of Connolly's lyrics, but also historical background essential to understanding the context in which the songs were written and performed. Praise: "My grand aunt Nora Connolly, in her book We Shall Rise Again, said of rebel songs: 'For more may be remembered of a country?s history and treasured deep in the heart of a people through a song or a poem than through the pages of a history book'?how true. It was Nora who taught singers her father?s songs. ?After 1916,' she said, ?I never did any more singing??how sad. Now with this project and through the great talent and commitment of all involved we can hear Nora sing again.? ?James Connolly Heron, great-grandson of James Connolly and author of The Words of James Connolly About James Connolly: James Connolly (1868?1916) was an Irish republican and socialist leader. He was executed by a British firing squad because of his leadership role in the Easter Rising of 1916. Connolly was the author of many books and articles, becoming one of the leading revolutionary theorists of his time. At the head of the Irish Citizen Army, Connolly's vision and determination proved decisive in launching the rising which proclaimed the Irish Republic from the steps of Dublin's General Post Office. This set in motion the sequence of events that would unleash the Irish War of Independence (1919?1921). While this did lead to 26 of Ireland's 32 counties becoming independent of the United Kingdom, it left unresolved the question of Irish sovereignty over the entirety of the island. Indeed, it left unresolved the very conflicts Connolly presciently warned against when he wrote: "If you remove the English army tomorrow and hoist the green flag over Dublin castle, unless you set about the organization of the Socialist Republic your efforts would be in vain. England would still rule you."
