Notes: An abridged telling of J.R.R. Tolkien's story The Hobbit by Scottish-English actor and singer Nicol Williamson. His voice is well suited to the tale at hand and with practiced pacing and inflection he carries it off very well indeed. The front cover art is by the author himself and shows the barrel rider emerging into the daylight. Included in this pressing is an 8 page booklet broken into four sections: Synopsis, Recording The Hobbit, Tolkien and "The Hobbit, Nicol Williamson. Worth seeking out for the Hobbit fans amoung us.
