We apologise for the extremely poor sound quality; the original recording was made on 78 RPM shellac disc and later transferred onto low-quality audio cassette, with the result that it suffered from both the hisses and pops of vinyl and the muffled sound of tape. Attempts were made to clean up the audio during computer transfer, but the scope for improvement was strictly limited.


…many members of the audience considered these to contain his best work. Certainly these ‘moods’ proved Blyton has a recognisable style.
