Wonderful Recording

Would you consider the audio edition of The Very Best of Dylan Thomas Reading to be better than the print version?

It's a treat to hear Dylan Thomas reading these beautiful works. I was disappointed that all works were not introduced before the reading of the particular work started. An annoying production flaw. Its still a wonderful listen.

Rerecording of his performing other poets' work

It was a wonderful experience to hear Dylan Thomas performing other poets. He is unique and his take on the work enlightening. The recording was a bit tunny sounding and at times not real clear. Still a great pleasure.

Wasted Talent

Thomas so want read any of his poems just feom.King Lear and others. I think the BBC one is the one we want.
