Publisher's Summary

Dr. Peter Blood is arrested and sentenced to hang for treating a wounded rebel. Instead of death, he is sent to Barbados as a slave. When the Spanish attack the port city of Bridgetown, he and his fellow slaves capture the Spanish ship and set out to sea, where he becomes the notorious pirate, Captain Blood. With battles on sea and on land, daring escapes, sword duels to the death, a touch of romance, and a magnificent score by Jeffrey Gage, Captain Blood is a swashbuckling adventure on a very grand scale!

    Story
    "Swashbuckling Radio for Modern Listeners"

    I'm developing a healthy respect for the Colonial Radio Theatre players. Rafael Sabatini's works are already amongst my favorites just because they're swashbuckling fun, and I'm a sucker for that. I'm also a sucker for a quality full-cast radio drama, and these actors bring the melodrama up to full. It actually feels a lot like they stripped the audio track from an Errol Flynn movie. I'd love to hear this group do a version of Scaramouche.

    Better than the book. As good as the movie with Errol Flynn and Olivia DE H avelland. Lots of fun.

    Story
    "Authentic adaptation presented remarkably well!"

    One of my favorite books (and one of my favorite movies as well), this adaptation is loyal to the book and authentic to the story… The real story, not the abbreviated, short attention span movie version. The production value is extremely high and an enjoyable listen (even if, at times, the dialogue was delivered a bit too quickly to sound natural). On the whole, I found it an outstanding version and dramatization and would enthusiastically endorse it as one of the best audiobook presentations I have stumbled across an a while. Bravo!

    Next to watching the Errol Flynn movie, this is the best dramatization of the book!

    Story
    "Masterpiece of adventure!"
    Where does Captain Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    CRT's production of Captain Blood is outstanding! I'm getting spoiled by this radio company's attention to detail and a willingness to dramatize the entire story. I've never encountered this before in a commercial product.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The sea engagements, the detail of history, and CRT's excellent performances. I felt like one of Peter Blood's crew.


    Which character – as performed by Jerry Robbins and The Colonial Radio Players – was your favorite?

    Jeremy Pitt, Captain Blood's conscience. Delicate yet strong like a foil. Not like a cutlass.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Cast off for Port Royal! CRT's production and Warner Brothers have already sheared away a main cable for quality, so I think both are safe.


    Any additional comments?

    Jerry and CRT keep them coming!
