Gertrude & Alice Recordings

In our queer history it is probably Gertrude Stein and Oscar Wilde who have inspired the most works by others over the years. Shown above and below are two vinyl LPs of readings of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. I do admit it's Alice explaining how to make hashish brownies that draws more attention.

There have been a number of recordings over the years inspired by, or even using, the works of Gertrude Stein, and a small sampling are shown below. I've set up a special page of my site with info, downloads, and much more, including songs by gay & lesbian artists about Gertrude.
