Community Guidelines. Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan & Various ‎– Holy Soul & Jelly Roll. Dylan sessionologist Clinton Heylin in his book "Bob Dylan. The Recording Sessions" names November 9 & 17 as dates for these sessions.

Bob Dylan arrived in New York City in 1961, following in the footsteps of Woody Guthrie, and Allen Ginsberg returned there in December 1963. In November 1971, Ginsberg and Dylan collaborated on songs intended for an as yet unreleased album called Holy Soul Jelly Roll.

Ginsberg and Corso remained lifelong friends and collaborators. Shortly after this period in Ginsberg's life, he became romantically involved with Elise Nada Cowen after meeting her through Alex Greer, a philosophy professor at Barnard College whom she had dated for a while during the burgeoning Beat generation's period of development. Ginsberg further brought mantras into the world of rock and roll when he recited the Heart Sutra in the song "Ghetto Defendant". The song appears on the 1982 album Combat Rock by British first wave punk band The Clash. Ginsberg came in touch with the Hungryalist poets of Bengal, especially Malay Roy Choudhury, who introduced Ginsberg to the three fishes with one head of Indian emperor Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar. He believed literature should come from the soul without conscious restrictions. Ginsberg was much more prone to revise than Kerouac.

Ginsberg was a big influence on Bob Dylan, and where would the 60's and 70's be without Dylan. Ginsberg and other experimenters were able to give it CPR. (Complete Poetic Restoration). This set is worth far more than the listed price just for his reading of "Kaddish. Howl lives up to its name, but it is "Kaddish" which sends chills into your soul and opens it up like a flower. The horror of the poem becomes a black orchid. Ginsberg wanted to be a musician.

Ginsberg acted as a mentor and collaborated with Dylan on an ambitious album called Holy Soul Jelly Roll. The music and lyrics first appeared on the February 1963 cover of Broadside magazine. 4. His work has spanned music, art and literature. Robert Allen Zimmerman was born on May 24, 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota. He legally changed his name in 1962, and while most assume his name alludes to poet Dylan Thomas, there’s a theory it might be inspired by Green Bay Packers legend Bobby Dan Dillon. Dylan signed to Columbia Records at the age of 20.

In 1965 Allen arranged for and fellow student photographer Dale Smith to photograph him and Michael McClure and Robbie Robertson and Bob Dylan in the alleyway behind City Lights Bookstore (originally for possible use on the Blonde on Blonde album cover). The images were never used (tho’ some have turned up in subsequent Dylan projects).

I was reading Allen Ginsberg. But I was definitely influenced by William Blak. .Blake was, in a lot of respects, a British nationalist. A few of these 1971 recordings leaked out on the 1994 Holy Soul, Jelly Roll box set, but until now - the ‘71 San Francisco recordings have never been released in their entirety. Disc one marks the first ever CD release of Allen’s 1970 album Songs of Innocence and Experience by William Blake, tuned by Allen Ginsberg - plus two previously unreleased recordings from June & July 1969 album sessions. In Spring 2017, Bob Dorough; for the 1969 album sessions recalled to me
