The children's adventure classic comes alive in this excellent audio performance. Narrator Pat Franklyn's young voice rolls words like "buccaneer" and "Hispaniola" as if he tastes them, and they taste almighty good. Rick Cimino offers a conventional Long John Silver in the same salt-laden accents that Wallace Beery and Robert Newton brought to the big screen. The other characters are played perfectly, too, and the enhancements--piping music, the clash of cutlasses, the boom of cannon--are exactly where they belong. My children listened to this over and over, and so did I. D.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 94]
