audio quality is out of date
What would have made Classic Joseph Conrad and Henry James Dramas starring Ralph Richardson, Volume 1 better?
Be prepared to put up with a lot of 1940s-50s radio audio quality, if you can. These playlets do not translate well to what a modern listener expects, in terms of listenability. The actors and actresss were excellent but the technology to record them was not. I'd say this recording is for old-time-radio fans only.
