Eleven CDs of Dylan Thomas (for free)

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on October 10, 2005

Salon has made all 11 CDs of The Caedmon Collection of Dylan Thomas reading his poems available as a Premium Subscriber download – which means that if you watch an advert to get a Salon Sitepass, you can download to your heart’s content…

There’s even an original cast “Under Milk Wood”.

The collection includes Thomas’ poems “Fern Hill” and “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night”; prose pieces such as “Adventures in the Skin Trade” and “Quite Early One Morning”; and his final work, the play “Under Milk Wood.” The recording of “Under Milk Wood” included here is the only one in existence with Dylan Thomas in the cast. It owes its remarkable existence to the serendipitous placement of a microphone at center stage minutes before the curtain was raised.

    Can’t find this watching an advert business… Am I being dense/unobservant?

    Go to the main Salon page, try to access some premium content, get a site pass and then go to the download page…
