Material + William Burroughs: Seven Souls

The text is from The Western Lands, my personal favorite from Burroughs. I always had it in the back of my head to look for this track, which was utilized very memorably in the first episode of the final season of The Sopranos.  I remember the hairs standing up on the back of my neck during that sequence - I felt that if they started out with Burroughs rapping about the Western Lands, they must really mean business.  And they did.
