The Ultimate version,
This review is from: The Hobbit (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This was always going to be a difficult item to review. After all, I preferred the Lord of the Rings radio drama to the Hobbit.
I first heard this on the radio in the late 1970s when it was almost 10 years old. I then went on to borrow it on several occasions from the library on cassette, both full of static and crackles.
Now coming up to 60 years old, it's finally been remastered. And boy is it good. The actors voices are nice and clear and the music sounds much better (though it's still a 1960s version of medieval.) This time you get a CD with the music (not sure if the other CD sets had this, I've never heard them.)
So if you're a fan of Tolkiens work, you should get this. Turn off the lights and let your imagination take you to Middle Earth.
And don't be scared of Riddles In The Dark...
