Last year Ros Nicholson of Pigeon Press produced a CD of a Baxter poetry performance from 1957 which she has now reissued to coincide with Montana Poetry Day.

The CD front cover reads Baxter & Bell and below that there’s a ‘descriptive’ subtitle – A poetry performance by James K Baxter of his poetry, ballads, by Lawrence Durrell and comments by Brian Bell at Bob Lowry’s Pilgrim Press, Auckland 1957.

The quality is not very good but it was done by a student and young person’s group with very limited equipment. The CD is accompanied by a 10-page booklet.

The Baxter CD/Booklet is available for $39.95 from:
