Rollins Interview Kit

This is another cool disc I picked up on our recent anniversary trip. I own a lot of Rollins, so it’s both rare and very exciting for me to find something I don’t already have.

This is a promo disc from Imago, containing three different sections.

Part 1 is Rollins’ answers to 17 interview questions (the questions are helpfully listed in the liner notes). It’s an interesting listen, recorded around the time of the release of Rollins Band’s monster album Weight. He covers stories of the recording, the new (at the time) bassist, the filming of Johnny Mnemonic, and whether Rollins considers himself a feminist.

Part 2 is six tracks of Rollins reading from his tour journals, selections between April 22 and June 12, 1994. You may not, but I find this sort of thing fascinating.

Part 3 is Rollins reading excerpts from the (then) soon-to-be-released (and completely amazing) Get in The Van. I have said many times that I absolutely love that book – punk music (and music in general) is really, really lucky to have that document. I have the book and the CD, and I highly recommend to it to anyone even remotely interested in that period of time in American punk music.

I’m thrilled to add this to my Rollins collection. Right on.

  1. Gotta love GIT Van !


  2. Cool Rollins find. Can’t believe there’s Rollins stuff out there that you still don’t have.


    • Hey didja notice? Your comment came through! Progress!!!

      Yeah! I like stuff like this. As for stuff I don’t have, I’d say there’s still quite a bit. I’ve got all the albums, both band and spoken. I have all his books, and all the DVDs. But if I can get to a bigger town that has actual good record shops, I can sometimes find something I don’t have – I’d say… 2 out of every 10 tries. Not great odds, already having so much, but totally worth it when something new (to me) turns up. Like this disc here!
