I have been wondering for decades what happened to the Speak-O-Phone
uncoated aluminums made by W. Cabell Greet of Lindsay at Columbia
University. Caedmon's LP was supposedly of all there were but the three
Durium discs that were issued at the time of his death have list a long
list of poems that had been recorded and could be released. Well here
is the answer and the sound files.
Bryan is there.

At Pacifica we have a recording of him reading other poems, but
not "Bryan, Bryan...". Here is the description:
