Various Artists: Some Haystacks Don't Even Have Any Needle

Eleven actors - Anne Anglin, René Auberjonois, Georg Stanford Brown, Donald Gallagher, Donald Griffith, Donald Harron, Kate Hawley, Pamela Hoffman, William Hutt, Dave McKnight, and Tony Randall - read 51 poems by 20th-century poets. This 2-LP set was produced to accompany the textbook of the same name published by Scott, Foresman and Company in 1970. The selection of poets is very tasty and includes works by Cummings, Millay, Auden, and Yevtushenko.
