This valuable archival recording, part of a series of speeches by American presidents and public figures, makes a welcome addition for students or libraries. The scratchy, distorted sound provides a "you-are-there" sensation. The jacket liner lists the occasion of the speech--whether inaugural address, fireside chat or VE Day announcement. Additional commentary or context could have been added, especially for cassette-listening, because selecting segments is imprecise and difficult. Truman's farewell address is a particularly interesting recap of the period's history. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 95]
