I suppose it helps to be a devoted fan of the 1980's TV series 'Beauty and the Beast', currently enjoying a re-run on Zone Romantica uk. No-one who ever watched that show came away unscathed - it was, and is, quite unique in its quality of acting, design, photography and of course story.
The character of 'Vincent', part man, part lion, was played with awe-inspiring skill by Ron Perlman. The sensitivity and depth of feeling that he brought to the role was matched by his voice - a voice that was utterly irresistible.
This cd includes beautiful, haunting music from the series, and poetry spoken by Mr. Perlman, in the character of Vincent. His voice is unforgettable, and the interpretation of the poetry is inspiring. If only he had made more cds like this! I have heard it said that he could read us an entire phonebook and we would be enchanted by his reading! I would have loved to hear more classic poetry or prose for that matter, read in this spellbinding fashion.
Since receiving my cd from Amazon, I have played it over and over again, nonstop. This is a very special cd.
