David Bowie Narrates Prokofiev's Peter And The Wolf on Colored 180g LP

First Pressing on Colored Vinyl

Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available

This 1976 album finds the-one-and-only David Bowie narrating Sergei Prokofiev's 1936 composition Peter And The Wolf with accompaniment from the Philadelphia Orchestra as conducted by Eugene Ormandy. Side One contains the narration by Bowie of public domain material originally written by Prokofiev. The second side of the LP features Eugene Ormandy conducting Benjamin Britten's Young Person's Guide To The Orchestra with the Philadelphia Orchestra

The Music On Vinyl reissue includes detailed liner notes on the project by Mary Campbell, specifically geared to "introduce children to the sounds of the individual instruments in the symphony orchestra." Both Prokofiev and Britten wrote their respective pieces with this aim in mind. Critics lauded the album, saying Bowie "found his most charming guise since Hunky Dory." He tells the well-known fable with his usual eloquence and style, and gives instructions at the beginning for kids to understand how the music corresponds to characters in the story. The accompaniment from the Philadelphia Orchestra is also first rate.
