But there is also so very much more to be enjoyed here: we are presented with a lovely cross-section of the poetry and prose that this extraordinary Welshman produced in his short life - and it's magnificently performed throughout by an excellent cast, not all of whom are 'household names' - a refreshing change, thank goodness.
Thomas himself features loud and clear: RETURN JOURNEY TO SWANSEA is a delight, the poet's lilting voice linking an altogether speedier and more urban portrayal of daily life than that to be found in the cobbled streets of Milk Wood, and his performance of QUITE EARLY ONE MORNING can't fail to enchant.
Some modern recordings make up the balance of this excellent-value 4-disc set (my one regret being that, good though the late Philip Madoc's rendering of A CHILD'S CHRISTMAS IN WALES is, it simply can't compete with Thomas's own hilarious reading for Caedmon.)
All things considered, on listening to THE ESSENTIAL DYLAN THOMAS one cannot but rage, rage, against the dying of the poet's own very individual light - a light that was extinguished far too early.
There'll never be another Dylan Thomas either. Why would you want a different recording!
