Lots of Fun

I already wrote up a review for another of the Volumes, so these are going to sound pretty much the same (since I got them all and have them as one big mash-up on my player for car rides). If you like old detective stories, you will like these. Full cast readings, great stories, and like-able characters. The only thing that you should be aware of is that the recordings are really old so the sound quality sometimes is poor, but still a good buy.

Cheesy

For a "hard-nosed detective" the portrayal of Spade sounds like a combination of Lt. Frank Drebin (Police Squad / Naked Gun) and the wisecracks of Maxwell Smart (Get Smart). Plus the commercials are downright annoying. Save your money.
