    Correction from Lisa Hollenbach: The recordings of "Heroes" through "The Name" were originally made for a birthday compilation tape Paul Blackburn made for Ezra Pound in honor of his 78th birthday in 1963. The tape was recorded not in New Mexico. Creeley begins the original tape (at UCSD) with a dedication to Pound--"For Ezra Pound, who's very very good to me, from Robert Creeley"--and reads these 10 poems.
