Such a Ball and such a Feast!,
This review is from: The Butterfly Ball & the Grasshopper's Feast (Audio CD)
I first heard this stunning concept in 1975, when a friend bought the newly released record. I was captivated by the narration; the beautiful tones of Judi Dench complementing the marvellously fruity voice of Michael Hordern; the wonderful original and haunting music,an unforgettable perfect package.
My wife and I bought the album just after our wedding in 1979, together with the illustrated book.
All 3 of our children were introduced to the Butterfly Ball and loved it.
For over 20 years I have searched in vain for it to be released on CD and now at last I have found it. Thank you Wizard Presents; a superb re-mastering of a masterpiece!
