Does anyone listen to spoken word? Do you have any to recommend? I like things inspired by the psychedelic generation or the beat era the most. I have two of Timothy Leary's albums, like those, especially "You can be anything this time around". I also really dig this guy: Rich Shapero Community on IMEEM who mixes primal themes with beautiful wilderness descriptions. I have "The Ram - Wild Animus" by him. It's kind of half music/half poetry, not sure if that really counts as "spoken word", but I view him more as a storyteller than a musician.
