Allen Ginsberg's 1983 double album, First Blues, is a moody combination of music and spoken-word verse, which features Bob Dylan and Arthur Russell, among others. To celebrate the album's vinyl and digital reissue, poets and musicians including Lou Reed, Ambrose Bye, CAConrad and Steven Taylor discuss the record, as well as perform some of its tracks.
