32 Days of Halloween Part VIII, Day 13: Rathbone and Poe

Basil Rathbone Reads Edgar Allan Poe

We posted one of my favorite Basil Rathbone readings of Poe last year, with “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar.” But thanks to your friends and mine at Caedmon, they released three albums of Rathbone reading Poe over time. We start with “The Tell-Tale Heart,” taken from Volume 3. Then we have “The Masque of the Red Death,” from Volume 1 of the collection. Thirdly, “The Cask of Amontillado” from Volume 2. And lastly, also from Volume 3, he gives us an excellent interp of “The Haunted Palace.”

A ton of Rathbone and Price reading Poe can be found on Spotify here. And I believe you can get five CDs worth of this goodness for just $9.99 from Amazon currently.
