Oldie but almost a goodie?

(4.5 stars)

Even though it sounded like it was recorded in the 40's or 50's, it was all done with such energy & gusto! Being completely unabridged, it had a full orchestra with many old fashioned sound effects & many voices playing so many different parts. It took a minute or so to get used to but I thought it was done so very well in the end. 4 &1/2 stars for sure.
