Theodore Roosevelt himself would sum up his reaction to this effervescent dash of Americana in one word: "Dee-LIGH-ted!" Taking full advantage of the drama and passion that was TR’s life--particularly his early presidential years--this text affords the listener memorable scenes--not only generous dollops of the tumultuous domestic and foreign matters on Roosevelt’s agenda and insights into his colleagues and adversaries at home and abroad, but also private moments that this somewhat accidental chief executive cherished as husband and father. Harry Chase’s line readings, articulations, and Roose-veltian declamations are pungent and magnetic. All in all, like TR himself, this is an epic for the ages. M.J.B.
