Over at the Steve Hoffman forums, there is currently a post about recommended versions of Prokofiev’s Peter & The Wolf.
My go to version has always been the Bowie narrated one – great recording, clear narration etc etc.
However, the post pointed me in the direction of this Rock Peter & The Wolf from 1975 – narrated by Viv Stanshall and featuring Brand X (incl Phil Collins), Manfred Mann, Gary Moore, Cozy Powell, Bill Bruford, Stephane Grappelli etc etc.
Despite having albums from most of the contributors, amazingly this is the first I have heard of the album. Anyone know anything about it ?
