rare Bukowski scan from OUI magazine 1981

hi forum, long-time lurker, first-time poster here, so forgive me if a- this is misplaced, and b- against forum rules, but i recently was fortunate enough to come into possession of a piece on Bukowski, in an old "gentleman's" magazine. i searched the net to see if it had been shared anywhere, and since it wasnt/isnt, i thought maybe i could share it here with others who have appreciation for all things Bukowski...

from the september 1984 1981 edition OUI adult/men's magazine, with the cover reading "Bukowski - so how can we keep ignoring the king of wild-hair poets", an article based on Joe Wolberg's book (not yet released at the time) "Bukowski Talking":

Great Post!

I am a little confused by something on the cover, though, where it says: The 20 Best Record Stores in the USA ... what's a record store???? :p

I think the cover above actually says September 1981. There's just a spot there that makes it look like a 4.

And thanks for sharing the scan.

Maybe that was what he needed to do to get credit for an assignment or a class...thanks for stopping by, man.

He disappeared like a drop of water hitting hot grease.
