Nelson Olmsted "Sleep No More! Famous Ghost and Horror Stories" (Vanguard, 9008, 1956), "Edgar Allan Poe: Tales of Terror" (Vanguard, 1956)
A pair of LPs released in a few different formats over the years (as stand-alone albums in the '50's, and then as a double record set in the '60's & '70's), these recordings are culled from the popular NBC radio show that Olmsted narrated from '52 to '56. Largely excellent and highly literary adaptations of famous works that are allowed to unravel in 8 to 9 minute vignettes, I think Olmsted's voice and tone will seem especially well suited to the medium among OTR enthusiasts (who will also find a familiar and more languid sense of pacing evident here). Cool stuff!
