This review is from: The War of the Worlds (the Original 1938 Broadcast - Remastered) (MP3 Download)
A faintly remembered recording from the past resurfaces into the modern arena where it is still able to produce echoes of the original fear that shook an unsuspecting nation. The earnest tones of the great Orson Welles ring with the classic reassurance of newsreader and continue to haunt the mind long after the conclusion of this iconic drama. A wonderful piece that is so gladly revisited by those who heard it in the past and a compulsory listen for anyone who has not yet experienced such a vividly drawn sound theatre. Once heard it will be impossible to forget the terror that emerges from 'Grover's Mill'. Although remastered it retains some of its crackle but it remains a priceless relic from radio history.
