Henry Miller, recorded in conversations with Ben Grauer in New York City in 1956, and released in 1961 by Grauer on his Offbeat Records label. Miller had his first private listen to the album on September 22, 1957: "I was moved myself. Some of it might be improved on, but when I reflect how ti was done--no preparation, damned little time, my mother dying, financial worries of the wrost sort, and so on, I think it's pretty good. If I get another try at this sort of thing I know I will be still better. I have offers all the time, but not with the right guys." --- Henry Miller, in a letter to Eddie Schwartz, Sept. 23, 1957 (qtd from Bibliography Of Primary Sources, Vol. II, p. 365).
