|ALEISTER CROWLEY The Order OF The Silver Star CD
These recordings were made on wax cylinders, so the sound quality is not exactly hi-fi, in fact it's pretty lo-fi, and the total running time of the 15 tracks is only about 22 minutes. Nevertheless, it's nice to hear the voice of the man the tabloid newspapers of the 1930s dubbed the wickedest man in the world. And what a surprising voice it is, the tone, inflections and emphasis sounding like nothing so much as Winston Churchill after inhaling a lungful of helium. It's actually quite a pleasant voice, albeit a little nasal.
