4.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous CD, 9 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reads Selected Poetry (Audio CD)
There is nothing better than listening to the late great poet reading some of the best of his own work. The sound of his voice takes you back to those now distant days before WW2 when life was very different and he was a young man. I love how Golf becomes "Goff" and Hunstanton is "Hunstan" There is the added enhancement as his own feelings are relayed to the listener as he recalls the emotions of these poems when he composed them and by setting the scene for each before reading them. That is something you cannot get yourself from just reading them or listening to someone else reading them. One minor dissapointment is that none of the tracks included any reflecting his great love of railways. Still a very worthwhile and entertaining CD
