This recording was released by Rhino in 1985, which was a major record label at the time. This is a reissue from Word Beat in 1994.

This was to be Bukowski’s final public reading, taking place at the Sweetwater in Redondo Beach, California, on March 31, 1980.

The reason behind the reading was to promote the new Bukowski album “Bukowski Reads His Poetry”, which was released by Tacoma records in 1980.
