Soon after the re-organization of Albany Poets in late-2003 when more people started getting involved and helping with projects, we released the CD, Didn’t I Hear You Read?. This was a great CD that represented some of the diversity of the local poetry community at the time as well as giving the incredilbty talented Leo (Mr. Gone) a way to showcase his musical / production skills.
To celebrate the release of Didn’t I Hear You Read? we featured some of the poets (Marcus Anderson, Emily Gonzalez, Don Levy, The Poet Essence) at the 2005 Albany Word Fest.
This CD contains many familiar names and even familiar poems, but the music takes all of these pices to another level. Take a listen and let us what you think.
