THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN OF BETJEMAN'S RECORDED WORKS,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sir John Betjeman's Banana Blush (Audio CD)
In the Seventies, Sir John Betjeman recorded four albums, setting some of his works to music. This is the best of the four. It is a joy to hear Betjeman reading his own work. The choices here are glorious - who could have thought the English language could be so deeply satisfying? Parker's accompanying music has often been criticised but at the time, it was praised to the hilt. Indeed, with Betjeman's self-confessed dodgy timing, he actually did a remarkable job. In my opinion, the music enhances the readings and adds to the enjoyment of the overall experience.
