Universally acclaimed as the maestro of horror and the morbid, Edgar Allan Poe’s dark gift has for more than a century and a half set the standard for the genre.
Now, Caedmon Audio presents a classic collection of Poe’s most terrifying tales performed by two of the most brilliant interpreters of his work, Vincent Price and Basil Rathbone. Between them, they perform 20 of Poe’s chilling stories and poems, creating an unforgettably intense listening experience.
• The Gold Bug
• The Imp of the Perverse
• Ligeia Performed by Vincent Price
• The Tell-Tale Heart
• The Pit and the Pendulum
• The Raven Performed by Basil Rathbone
Two of the greatest voices ever to recite the greatest American author.
Terrible organization, not 20 stories.
While well read, the organization of this purchase lacks even the most basic navigation capabilities. The stories aren't even named, merely label as a track. Additionally, there are but 8 stories, not the 20 erroneously listed in the description. I expected much more for the overpriced $16 and regret purchasing this. The only reason I graciously give it 2 stars is the use of fantastic narrators.
Simply the best Poe audio available.
I had this collection on cassette when I was a young, and am thrilled to see it available here. Rathbone and Price perfectly convey the macabre beauty of Poe’s material. A must have.
