Dylan Thomas reads 10 of his poems.
Top Customer Reviews
LP that had long outlived it's playing life. Hisses
and crackles had detracted from the enjoyment factor
and the LP had been banished to the loft.
This 2009 release of Dylan Thomas reading some of his
best loved and better known poems does justice to this
There are 10 poems in total on this recording, including,
In The White Giant's Thigh,
A Child's Christmas in Wales (my own particular favourite)
A Winter's tale,
Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night,
And Death Shall Have No Dominion.
His "Visit To America"; An Irreverent Preamble,is also
included, one of the last recordings from the great man
during what was to be his last tour abroad. This live
recording in front of a New York audience, during his
1953 readings, could well have been made in the days
leading up to his death in November of that year.
Already having the Richard Burton recordings of some of
Thomas works, I was overjoyed to hear the Bard reading
his own poems in his own unique and mellifluous tones.
Despite the age of the original master tapes made in 1952
and 1953 respectively, the end result is still of favourable
quality. Admirers of Dylan Marlais Thomas will find this
an acceptable recording which recreates the vivid imagery
from the mind of a poetic genius.
The CD runs for just over 79 minutes.
A worthy addition to your collection.
These are obviously old recordings, some record in the heat of the live recording rather than the controlled recording studio, and the quality is not what we expect in this digital age; somehow, this adds to the charm for me.
It is a good selection of his most famous and best-loved poems.
