William S. Burroughs- Real English Tea Made Here (2007, Audio Research Editions)

This three-disc collection compiles the tape experiments made by the writer/magus from 1964 to 1965... Using a crude Wollensack recorder, he was able to expose mechanisms of control and view time as non-linear. "If you have a pre-recorded universe, in which everything is already pre-recorded, the only thing that can be tampered with is the pre-recordings themselves" was an important step. Let's hope this release reminds them of this before its too late.
