5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic that should be introduced to all schools., 9 Jan. 2013
This review is from: The Butterfly Ball & the Grasshopper's Feast (Audio CD)
Around 1975, I bought the book of The Butterfly Ball for my children and loved the illustrations although, for me, the text was two dimensional - I am not good with words. Then, browsing through records in "Cheapo Cheapo Records", a second hand record shop in Soho, I came across what I thought was the Roger Glover version of The Butterfly Ball not realising that it was the record of the book. It was also a demo record marked "Not For Resale" but who was looking? When I got it home, I was, at first, disappointed but, when I listened to the whole record, the book came alive with the wonderful voices of Michael Hordern and Judi Dench as well as the fabulous musicians. I realised that I had inadvertently stumbled on something very, very special and, in my opinion, better than the rock version although that's good as well. Anyway, it is still my favourite record after all these years and like many of your other reviewers, I have introduced it to countless friends. However, until now, it was never available to buy. I thought that it would have been revived after Sir Michael Hordern died as a tribute. Sadly, it never happened. BUT hooray!!! It's wonderful that The Butterfly Ball is now available on CD so that all the world can enjoy what is truly a masterpiece by all concerned.
