From their first encounter with his name, Odds Bodkin engages listeners with sounds--his voice, Celtic harp, 12-string guitar, the characters he brings vividly to life. This tale from the legend of King Arthur is a grand source of historical reference, wizards, magic and adventure. The story as Odds tells it focuses on young Percival and is designed to entice young adults to listening. The boy speaks with a surprisingly contemporary voice, perhaps to relate more clearly to the intended audience. The quality of sound is crystalline. The music and voices are carefully toned to be heard as a recording (rather than for a live audience.) Odds Bodkin’s rhythmic telling style is lyrical and compelling in an astounding mix.
