EDITORS’ NOTES

Smack of the middle of his wild Berlin period, Bowie took time out from party-hopping with Lou and Iggy to make, of all things, a children's album. Peter and the Wolf is a straightforward rendition of Prokofiev's classic, conducted by the legendary Eugene Ormandy. Bowie's narration starts out fairly reserved, but he becomes more playful with the characters as he goes along. By the time the story gets to the squabble between Bird and Wolf, he's clearly having as much fun as we are.

Heard this as a child... now I'm buying it for my kids.

My dad played this for me as a kid. I loved the story and the music. I am now buying it for my kids. BTW a lot of the music was also used in A Christmas Story. Namely the bully got the wolf theme where Ralph was the bird.

Download is a mess

I bought the album. Instead of downloading as one album with 41 tracks, it downloaded each track as a separate album. The tracks are not in order making playing it impossible if one wants to listen to the story. HELP!
