Torrent description

This is a re-listing of an existing torrent - I did not create it.
Thanks to the original (unknown) creator of the torrent.
I post it here (and Demoniod, TPB) to encourage a longtime healthy seed.

I grew up listening to this recording (Conifer Records 1973) and hence, prefer it to all other versions, even though it is abridged.
I literally wore out my original LPs of it.

It is in wma format- if you want MP3's, iTunes or others will convert the files for you (you might want to adjust your import settings down - 96kbps mono is usually fine for audio books, although there is some nice music in this recording).

The entire recording (in 10 minute segments) is also available on youtube: /watch?v=fihFNfmZ4u4

Release Notes
This CD was created using the audio cassette release of the original recording.
I personally believe it to be of excellent quality as making a copy using the
original LP source is prone to sounding crackly and scratchy.
I have not sought to tamper with the audio in any way to reduce tape hiss etc
because again I found that it muffled the original audio somewhat. As such, no
noise reduction (Dolby B/C or other) has been applied. If one should choose to
do so subsequently- that of course is entirely up to you.

I have trasferred all 3 cassettes to 3 CDs. For ease in uploading the CD has
been condensed and encoded in WMA format (192k). I have incorporated my own
chapter points- each track approximates to around 4-5 minutes. I have labelled
the chapter points in accordance with the actual chapters of the book.

I hope you enjoy this recording for it is by far the best audio reading of the
book and indeed outstrips any known dramatisation of the work to date- a
testament to the vocal abilities of the performer Nicol Williamson. Each
character he voices- though there are many- all are given a unique identity.
This together with incidental music throughout the recording adds to its
perfection and all credit should be given to the Director Harley Usill.

[?: Anyone think it's worth it to post a MP3 version of this? -FerraBit]
