    Here is a review of this release in a Cassettezine of the time.

    "Being someone who has always thought that the whole point of poetry
    was listening to the words I find this tape very annoying. Its very
    much a case of a good idea coming apart in the process of its making.
    (see - I can write poetry). The poetry is actually great - if you can hear
    it. Its got what's called a 'harsh electronic backing', the problem
    being that the backing doesn't stay just a backing, but tends to obscure
    the words. The quality's a bit wooly as well which doesn't help a lot.
    Don't be put off though, as i know some people who really love this tape,
    but i warn you, its not for the weakhearted." MW
