A Google search brought it up on 1989's Piano Music.

Solo Piano, my favorite Glass album. On permanent rotation in the car's CD player.

An iTunes search of "Wichita Glass" comes up with a list of albums the track has appeared on.

AllMusic.com says Solo Piano and Best of. Apparently, one can also hear Allen Ginsberg reading poetry over it on his Holy Soul Jelly Roll album.

Also on the Hydrogen Jukebox album with Ginsberg reading the poem along with the music, the version on the Solo Piano album is just the music.

The version on Hydrogen Jukebox is the original. The piece was written to accompany the poem.

It's going to be released on iTunes, played by P. Glass, with the poem being read by Ira Glass on May 11.
