Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy
Fantastic to hear this again- sadly it's VERY LOW 64KBS bit rate makes all the hardwork in re-mastering the original show utterly pointless as it sounds like eggs are frying & gurgling whilst listening- i-Tunes really should do better than this - I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED- AVOID if you consider audio quality important...
I was about to purchase but decided to preview first. Audio quality on the preview is terrible. I have this on a 10 yr old cassette tape and quality is better. Is the preview representative of the full version?
Hitchhikers guide to hilarity
Absolutely top notch entertainment. Buy this if you have the books or if you don't. Buy this if you have the time to listen, if you don't have the time make it! For excellent comedic scripting please see babel fish section!
