Format: Audio CD
Like other great poets, Dylan Thomas has offered the world a body of work rooted in the living world, but he is different from the others in that he is more imaginative and reads in the greatest voice I have ever heard. This item also is as complete as anyone could hope for. I think almost any normally sensitive human would be thrilled to hear the Dylan Thomas voice, even if their interests deviate far from those of poetry buffs. What a bargain!

This collection is beautiful. Before you even play the cds you are enchanted by the quality of the production of this set and its attractiveness. It is super value particularly for fans of the spoken word. and Dylan Thomas is spectacular in his delivery of both his own poetry and the works of other esteemed writers.
Would love to have some of the original recordings done by Caedmon but as these are scarce and prohibitive with regard to cost I am delighted to have come across this wonderful collection.

Tremendous Bargain for Thomas' Great Voice 6 Jan. 2006
By Kevin J. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The reviewer who called this a bad value is completely wrong. This set includes the COMPLETE Caedmon recordings of Thomas' incredible voice. Though a few of these original LP's were fairly common (Child's Christmas in Wales), many of the LPs were rare. People were bidding $50-$100 and up for some of these single LPs only recently. Here you have MANY CDs for the price of one! It would be nice to have an extensive book with this set, but you can always buy Dylan's books seperately. The set includes mini-LP cover sleeves for all of Thomas' original LP covers (though thin paper sleeves), another nice touch. Don't let this one get away. When it is out-of-print, it will probably go for $200-$300 and up!

Enjoy being read to 18 May 2005
By C. Roger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
I enjoy sitting and listening to Dylan Thomas read to me; such a rich and wonderful voice. And contrary to what another reviewer has written, Under Milkwood is complete. While the liner notes do say 'From' Under Milkwood, the play is complete.

Under Milk Wood is infact complete here... 11 July 2005
By S. Hebbron - Published on Amazon.com
...as are Thomas's other works. Thomas was a skilled and lyrical writer and captures much of the musicality of Welsh speaking people in his works. While he is interesting to read it can be a trail for those not familair with Welsh culture, particularly now as the Welsh culture he speaks of is pretty much dead and gone. His musical poetic skills are brought beautifully to life when he reads to you and this is the only way to "do" Under Milk Wood, written as a play for radio but essentially an elongated poem of early 20th century Welsh life as Thomas himself knew it. Contrary to some beliefs expressed in reviewing this item, the play is complete, all the complex and strange villagers are present as are their stories.

What Thomas does best is to guide your imagination into his world and this set allows you to experience his work in the best way read by the man himself.

Wow...lotsa CDs! 24 Mar. 2009
By tantos libros... - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When you open the box pictured, you get three folders of CDs 1-4, 5-8, and 9-11 respectively. The pictures on the CD folders are the "album covers" reproduced from the records. There is a little pamphlet with info about recording Dylan Thomas written by Marianne Roney, one of the founders of Caedmon. Each CD opens with a spoken intro by Billy Collins.

There is a great mish-mash of selections here. That might be my only criticism, the organization. It's hard to discern the order just from looking at it...why not put an entire album on the same CD, rather than breaking it up? For example, they put some poems from "Dylan Thomas Reading Over Sir John's Hill and Other Poems" on CD 1 and others on CD 2, and I'm curious why.

Still, the collection is great--I'm not sure if it is supposed to be complete or not (I don't see anything on it that claims that), but there is a good plenty here to keep a person listening for a long while at any rate. His voice is wonderful and it's easy to understand why they recorded so much of him.

Dylan Thomas Collection 27 May 2007
By Stephen George - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Excellent cd series.

Thomas' pipe-organ voice resonates on every track.

His wit and humor pushes the envelope for its time. Bobby socksers,the hang-over of those early Cold War years,post war America full of booms and busts and Levit-towns. Picture too a staid America, the 1950s campus life just before "the Cool" hit, before the Folk revival scene, pre Beats.

Now enter the mop-headed Welsh bard replete with his double entendre openings to audiences. Audiences who are mostly undergrads and academics. Thomas has them laughing in all the right places ... its poetry without a laugh track or safety net.

The readings are good, the explantions sometimes meandering but always enjoyable and highly listenable.

Recommend this to any school teachers, lovers of poetry, Britophiles, students... with a willingness to sit back, listen and have a master of the craft weave vistas of Welsh seaside villages, lush countrysides, closed gray coal pits, lecherous and harmless characters and everywhere there are forests to see for the trees.
