I think the Poetry In Motion disc is the first place I heard Bukowski's voice, and it threw me for a loop. Wasn't at all what I was expecting. To look at him you might expect a deeper, rougher voice - to match the face I supose. And the words.

It didn't help that the video was the size of a postage stamp on the computer I was using at the time...

I heard the man in Hostage (CD) at first time. I was surprised as hell to hear his soft, almost delicate voice. Having heard William Burroughs first I kind of expected Hank's voice to be a rougher version of his voice. After I got used to it I just love to hear him speak!

If you can get it for a dollar, sure. ;) I wouldn't pay more than a couple bucks for it though.

When it came out 100 years ago it was very cutting edge, technologically, and there was very little Bukowski video readily available. So at the time it was interesting, but now it's kind of irrelevant.

No, $18 or so, on ebay. I'd like to see the Buk part of this festival only, that's all. I guess I need to wait until they put it on youtube again, or someone wants to send me a copied copy.
