Open Culture – Christopher Walken, Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry & Other Celebs Read Tales by Edgar Allan PoeBack in 1997, Hal Willner recorded, Closed On Account of Rabies, an audio compilation featuring well-known artists reading macabre stories by Edgar Allan Poe. 15 years later, the album has gone out of circulation. A handful of “out-of-print” CDs can be bought on Amazon. But they’ll run you anywhere from $30 for a used copy, to $250 for a mint copy in its original packaging. That puts the audio collection out of reach for most.
Once again Open Culture comes in handy.
