Brendan Behan

Confessions (Lp)

Label: Treader

Format: LP

Genre: Sound Art



* In process of stocking * Fascinating, historically important and previously publicly unheard recordings of the great Irish author and playwright Brendan Behan.

These tapes became the source for his book Confessions of an Irish Rebel, posthumously published in 1965 following his tragic death the year before. They were recorded by his friend and confidante Rae Jeffs in the Chelsea Hotel, NYC in 1960. Tranferred for the first time from the original 1/4” tapes, with a sleeve made from another unseen artefact from Jeffs' archive - a postcard from Brendan to Rae.
