Title: The Gonzo Tapes: The Life and Work Of Dr Hunter S. Thompson
Label: Shout Factory
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Recorded by Hunter S. Thompson between 1965 and 1975, these tapes capture his thoughts and descriptions both as they're happening and in reflection, as he would often go back to rerecord commentary while writing. Filmmaker Alex Gibney, producer Eva Orner and Gonzo archivist Don Fleming were given permission by Thompson's widow to explore the boxes of tapes stored in the basement of his Owl Farm home in Woody Creek, Colorado, left behind after Thompson's suicide in 2005. Fleming transferred the audiocassettes and reel-to-reel tapes to digital files, and they made their way to the cutting room for the film GONZO: THE LIFE AND WORK OF DR. HUNTER S. THOMPSON. Now for the first time these previously unreleased recordings are available in a 5-CD set. THE GONZO TAPES features original cover artwork by Gonzo artist Ralph Steadman, an amazing 44-page booklet full of never before seen images from Hunter S. Thompson's estate, along with memorable photos and an introduction by film director Alex Gibney, an essay by journalist and Thompson's fellow foreign correspondent Loren Jenkins, and notes by the Gonzo Tapes producer Don Fleming, former front man of the Velvet Monkeys and Gumball who has produced Sonic Youth, Alice Cooper, Hole, and more.
