lol... wen u listen the first few lines of Charge of the Light Brigade by Tennyson... u think '..eh? i carnt hear this ..' THEN u realise just how old the recording is...(05.1980) - next you look in the accompanying leaflet to see they have printed the poems/portion of poems which are hard to hear - .... track 09, is cheery Tarantella(12.1932) chuntered out by author Hilaire Belloc... so .. this is just what one asked for... recordings of the original - not always clear/complete but, hopefully, true to the individual authors'. One can always read/listen on other audio recordings for clarification but to hear the originals is an eerie, fab experience. Im enjoying it.

Historic Recordings from the British Sound Library: British poets reading their own work.
I bought it for a friend who, at the age of 80, has just received her BA in humanities. She is delighted with the recording. The delivery, from (Nik-Nik) was prompt and the goods were exactly what I wanted. A completely perfect purchase

CD in pretty poor condition but some tracks OK. Can't complain really - so reasonably priced and worth having just to hear an ancient recording Tennyson reciting The Charge of the Light Brigade. It is an ex library CD, so expectations adjusted accordingly!

HASH(0x9635acc0) out of 5 stars The Spoken Word - Poets 10 Dec. 2006
By Dan Funsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A wonderful collection of modern poets reading their own work. It is a delight to hear Lord Alfred Tennyson read 'The Charge of the Light Brigade," or J.R.R. Tolkien reading (in Elvish) "The Nine Rings." A wonderful gift for a poetry lover.
