10. If I Told Him: A Completed Portrait of Picasso - Gertrude Stein


from an eBay listing - I assume these are part of the recordings issued by Dorian/Caedmon:

GERTRUDE STEIN: A VALENTINE TO SHERWOOD ANDERSON/SELECTIONS FROM MADAME RECAMIER AN OPERA.     
ERPI PICTURE CONSULTANTS/NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH CONTEMPORARY POETS 3/4. 12" 78rpm

The DORIAN Lp was reviewed in the NY Times  December 9, 1951
Gertrude Stein Read by Gertrude Stein - this is the burden of a twelve-inch
disk issued by DORIAN RECORDS DR 331.  She made these recordings on shellac in a limited
edition in 1935 during her last trip to America, and they are now reissued
on a long-playing record.
  If you have strong feelings about Miss Stein and her works,
pro or con, you should find these readings of interest.  It is amusing 
to hear her negotiate such subjects as THE MAKING OF AMERICANS, A 
VALENTINE TO SHERWOOD ANDERSON,  IF I TOLD HIM ( A Completed Portrait of Picasso),
Matisse and Madame Recamier (An Opera).
  To a Stein devotee it may all seem clear and logical.  To the irreverent
some of it may be hard going.  I confess I got lost following
her most intricately simple phrases.  There are places where
she herself stumbles over some of her tongue twisters.  And there
are some passages where you think the needle is stuck in the same
groove.  Her voice and reading style are disarming. 

Thomas.
