Burke, Alan – “My Naked Soul” – [Audio Fidelity Records, Inc.]

Alan Burke was a talk show personality broadcasting on WNEW-TV in New York. Supposedly outspoken and welcome to talk and debate with those willing to take on the challenge, Burke said he was a man “who puts down phonies and poseurs on one hand and loves little children with the other.” Eewwww. He likes to listen to seagulls, has an enormous appeal to women and is also a poet. He’s also a bit of a pompous ass, which makes this recording all the more enjoyable. 16 love poems with a cocktail lounge soundtrack, Burke’s “sensual” voice attempts to lure the listeners (hey LADIES) into his seductive trance. With lines like “I planted olive groves in Lebanon, and you drank from the Milky Way,” and “We kissed in a universe, and you bore my sons and daughters” (that’s right lady, MY sons and daughters), many will be stripping down and getting ready to get down. The way Alan reads, with many pauses makes for some interesting mixing. I found it quite successful to simply drop the needle anywhere, play one phrase, pick it up, drop it somewhere else, play a phrase, repeat, continue. I was in tears, my sides hurt, and I had to catch my breath. Now that’s a love poem.
