Classic Ghost Stories

Robert Powell reads the classic ghost stories - The Mezzotint,  The Ash Tree, Wailing Well, Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad and The Rose Garden - of Montague Rhodes James.  The short series was originally broadcast over the BBC 2 Yuletide schedule back in 1986. You can find them (ripped from off air VHS by the look of it) out there in torrent land, or via the youtubes below. For this post I've ripped the audio, corrected the mono balance for stereo playback and cleaned it up the hiss a little where possible. I think they work rather well as audio-books without the visuals.

The Mezzotint (Pt.1)

The Ash Tree (Pt.1)

Wailing Well (Pt.1)

Oh, Whstle and I'll Come To You My Lad (pt.1)
