Overview:
On 12th March 1962 The Live New Departures Jazz Poetry Septet - featuring some of the UK's finest modern jazz musicians together with poets Pete Brown (co-writer/Cream) and Michael Horovitz (Britain's Beat Laureate) - performed a historic experimental gig at the SCR Students' Building on the Southampton University Campus. The evening featured post-bop jazz, poetry, jazzpoems and solo and exchange sound-poetry, as well as performances of the most ambitious work the Septet developed, Brown and Horovitz's 'Blues For The Hitchhiking Dead'.

The magical events of that night were captured on a reel-to-reel tape recorder by the artists' friend Victor Schonfield. To celebrate Record Store Day they are now released for the first time as a double 180gm vinyl individually numbered box set with a deluxe full size booklet containing photos, reminiscences, essays and memorabilia.
