    Vincent Price and Basil Rathbone brilliantly interpret twenty of Edgar Allan Poe's most chilling stories and poems - an unforgettably intense listening experience!

    tom says: "Excellent performance, poor formatting."

    As mentioned by other reviewers: a. Price and Rathbone provide a masterful performance here, and b. the formatting is bad enough to render the recording almost unusable, especially to those not already intimately familiar with the works of Poe. I have little to add by way of review, but I took the time to create a table of contents that I hope will be of assistance to other listeners.

    1.) 0:10 - 2:03 To -----
    2.) 2:03 - 3:10 Alone
    3.) 3:15 - 6:23 The City in the Sea
    4.) 6:28 - 31:20 Berenice
    5.) 31:25 - 55:28 The Fall of the House of Usher *
    6.) 55:30 - 1:44:27 Ligeia
    7.) 1:44:30 - 1:46:49 excerpt from The Fall of the House of Usher
    8.) 1:46:55 - 2:18:43 The Pit and the Pendulum
    9.) 2:18:46 - 2:35:27 The Masque of the Red Death

    *Selection #5, "The Fall of the House of Usher" skips a section of verse (marked as I-VI in the text), along with approximately one page on either side of this section. The skip occurs at 40:57. Selection #7 is of the missing verse (I-VI), though without the other material excluded from #5. Selection #5 has additional abridgments - a paragraph here, a sentence or a word there. I have not found any further abridgments in the other selections; if you find any, please post the information in a review.
