Poems & Tales Of Edgar Allen Poe - Volume 3 - Read by Basil Rathbone - Directed by Howard Sackler - Cat.# TC 1195 - 1965 - Caedmon Records Inc.

For Stereo or Monaural Phonographs

This is the third album of Poe's macabre masterpieces the Basal Rathbone has recorded for Caedmon. The first two have been so successful since their release that it was inevitable a third should follow.

When Basil Rathbone first read The Raven & The Masque of the Red Death, it was apparent to all that he had exactly the right voice and understanding to capture every nuance of suspense, excitement, intensity, and horror which Poe instilled so masterfully into both his poems and stories.

Indeed Basil Rathbone proved to be so gifted a storyteller that Caedmon asked him to record Hawthorne's tales & Sherlock Holmes' adventures.

With the universal popularity of Poe's writings and the usage of these records in schools, a myriad of enthusiastic listeners is developing who will recall Basil Rathbone's resonant reading every time an eerie moment in life stirs up the memory of a similar moment from a great Poe classic.
