Ezra Pound recordings on-line

I just received this information:

The Complete Poetry Recordings of Ezra Pound

edited, with an extended listening guide, by Richard Sieburth.

The PENNsound Pound includes many rare recordings, as well as a set of
private recordings, made in 1962-1972, whose existence had not
previously been known. Sieburth provides a detailed essay to accompany
the recordings, which cover Pound's two major recording sessions, at
Harvard in 1939 and in Washington, DC, in 1958. In addition, we include
Pound's 1942 reading of Canto XLVI, broadcast on Italian radio as part
of his radio speeches; Pound's reading at Spoleto in 1967; Pound's
reading of his "Confucian Odes" (Spoleto, 1970), and a private recording
of three Cantos from the early 1970s.

Other recent additions to PENNsound include the complete recordings of
William Carlos Williams, and extensive collections of recordings by
Jackson Mac Low, Susan Howe, Anne Tardos, Anne Waldman, Myung Mi Kim,
Charles Reznikofff, Alan Davies, Tracie Morris, Bruce Andrews, Barbara
Guest, Nicole Brossard, Robin Blaser, Amiri Baraka, Bern Porter, Robert
Grenier, Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, Allen Ginsberg, Brian Kim Stefans,
Kenneth Goldsmith & many others.
