I really love The Shadow. I and so discouraged by these recordings because they are not clean. I know they are old, I know the media doesn't last forever, but I still walk away from The Shadow episodes with a want for more.These recordings have a lot of hiss, pop and added noise. I am sure this is because of the age of the media on the originals. These need a master to rework them. The story is good. It was interesting to listen, but it was a depressing story. OK, I listened right after One Beastly Beast by Garth Nix and it was funny and light, then I went to this (alphabetical order on my player). Only listen to this when you have 1) absolute quiet in your listening place, 2) when you can handle an adult story, 3) when you can focus on every word without distraction.Because The Shadow knows! Hahahahahahahaha!

Sometimes the recordings vary in sound. This begins with whispers in a prison cell which goes to normal volume. Probably a good edition to not use headphones. Two criminals break from prison and have a score to settle with Cranston.
