I've been a fan since 19 sixty something when Dudley first came on the TV. I love all his music and comedy but have only just sourced some of his classical stuff on Amazon. This recording dates to 1995 and I bought a used "like new" copy for £7.76. The seller had checked and signed to say "played and all fine" on the invoice, and there are no problems at all, so thank you. Obviously digital recording has come a fair way since 1995 so I didn't expect the crisp, pristine audio experience we get today. That said I am very pleased with the CD and it's certainly worth the money paid. To think it was Dudley belting out Grieg's wonderful melodies really gave me goose bumps. And the sound quality is fine, a little better than some other stuff I have that dates to 2000. If you're a fan, it's well worth the few pounds. It reminds you just how talented and underrated this man was.
