Under Milk Wood

I've just been listening to Under Milk Wood (by Dylan Thomas). If you want to hear Gareth uttering words of undying love then this is definately a tape to go for. He play Mog Edwards who loves Myfanwy Price.

Virtually every other Welsh actor/singer you've ever heard of is on it. The list starts with Anthony Hopkins and Jonathon Pryce and takes in people like Windsor Davis, Mary Hopkin, Angharad Rees, Tom Jones, Aled Jones, Sir Geraint Evans, Nerys Hughes, Sir Harry Secombe, Sian Phillips and loads more (detailed below).

Very enjoyable with some wonderful lines of dialogue and a very poetic feel to it. I love the goings on in the village with the postman telling everyone what's in their letters before they read them (his wife steams the envelopes open), all the scandal swopping between the village gossips and the wonderfully eccentric group of people whom we hear in their dreams and conversations.

The recording was made in 1988 (although you wouldn't know that from the copyright statement on my copy. I think EMI bought the rights to it in 1992.) and the ISBN is 1-85848-495-2

This tape is no longer commercially available.
