5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite writings read by my favourite actors!, 28 Mar 2010
By 
Bonnie Shawcross "Bee Bee Queen" (Northern Ireland) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
There's nothing not to like here. Two amazing actors, Basil Rathbone and Vincent Price, read the amazing, enthralling and beautiful works of Edgar Allan Poe, a horror master. Both these actors have been in films based on Poe (Tales of Terror starred them both, Vincent Price was in many other famous Poe films- House of Usher, Pit and the Pendulum, etc.). Vincent Price reads 'The Gold Bug' which I found immensly entertaining, as well as 'Ligeia', 'Morella' and 'Berenice', all excellent. But Basil gets to read much more, including the wonderfully read 'The Black Cat', 'The Cask of Amontilliado' and 'The Haunted Palace.' Two of the best voices in history (film history, television history, radio history) make this a complete treat. The only negative thing is that sometimes Basil reads very fast, and inflects the words in a different way than you might think. But still, I recommend this 100%!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent voices, 10 Aug 2011
I have been a fan of Basil Rathbone's for as long as I remember, and I was born after he died. In particular his voice and his manner of speaking appealed to me. To find him and another wonderful thesp, Vincent Price, reading some of Poe's greatest works felt like Christmas.
This is a wonderful collection. If you love beautiful, trained voices, deep, resonant, wonderfully speaking the Queen's English - you'll love this exceptional collection of stories and poetry.
