Michael Hordern's reading of these tales appeared on CD in late 1980s. They were superb. Those recordings have been badly rendered for Audible and sound as though the reader has his head in a bucket. it should surely have been possible to do the conversion to a higher standard. Oddly, the other volume of Hordern reading M R James is of a high standard.
