by Ian Frederick Caton
A Crate of Records is a book for anyone who ever dreamed of starting a band. With the wide-eyed wonder of a true fan, the poet’s love for music weaves its way through every moment of this collection. Reading Ian Caton’s poems is like hanging out with a pal who is giddily attempting to turn you on to some new music. The tone is conversational, passionate, and insistent, challenging us to refute his wild proclamations. Songs become portals to other dimensions, and as Bob Marley reminds us, when they hit, we feel no pain.
–Christopher Luna, Clark County (WA) Poet Laureate and founder of Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic
