features in: Album Chart of 1965Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Recorded in Paris, at the behest of an English Bookshop owner there, this was an unusual album of Burroughs reading extracts from his novels; 2 from “Naked Lunch” (1959), 1 from “The Soft Machine” (1961) and 5 from “Nova Express” (1964). In his reissue liner notes, Barry Miles said: “At the height of the '60s, Call Me Burroughs was an essential record. The Beatles all had copies - Paul McCartney included Burroughs on the sleeve of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Art dealer Robert Fraser bought ten copies to give to friends such as Brian Jones and Mick Jagger. Marianne Faithful and Keith Richards' dealer had copies, as did numerous painters and writers.
