PETER USTINOV VERSES, VOICES & NOISES CD

Comedy & Spoken Word 26 Tracks on 1 CD

Although by no means a regular – or even normal – recording artist, the mighty PETER USTINOV made recordings many times over the years. A man impossible to categorise, he was equal parts actor, writer, dramatist, filmmaker, theatre and opera director, stage designer, screenwriter, comedian, humourist, newspaper and magazine columnist, radio broadcaster, television presenter, raconteur, and the perfect TV chat show guest. This idiosyncratic tribute to his genius is drawn from three sources: the wholly bizarre “The Grand Prix Of Gibraltar” LP (1959), presented here in its entirety; side two, (Ustinov only features on side two); of “Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite/Between Birthdays” LP (1961) by Andre Kostelanetz, Peter Ustinov and Ogden Nash, which features monologues by Ustinov and has never previously been reissued in any format, and “Phoney Folk-Lore”, a long forgotten 1952 78rpm single, one of his earliest recordings.
