    This political science classic still has the power to shock, just as it did when first published almost 500 years ago. Fritz Weaver reads in an appropriately detached manner, for it is this air of objectivity regarding the ruthless pursuit of political power that has made Machiavelli's name synonymous with evil. This quality recording begins and ends with ceremonial music, which sets the right tone for a treatise directed to royalty.

    In my opinion, this is the best of the various productions of THE PRINCE available on audio. The introduction is helpful, and interesting. Mr. Fritz Weaver's narration is compelling, and maintains the listener's interest.

    Richard Burton and Ralph Richardson join together in this unqiue musical production of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner". The superb delivery of both these actors is augmented by an original soundtrack composed by David Moore.

    The majesty of Burton's voice and acting is drowned out by a strange selection of "music."
