Last Tuesday night at the Gagosian Gallery in New York City, Ginsberg Recordings—a new collaboration of the Allen Ginsberg Estate and music management company Esther Creative Group—announced its plan to release Ginsberg’s entire recorded library over the next two years. With the reissue of the famed collection to which Bob Dylan contributed, Holy Soul Jelly Roll, set to drop in mid-September, Ginsberg Recordings intends to put out a digital release accompanied by the original liner notes every few months.
