The Adventures of Doc Savage
This eight-CD collection also includes a fascinating documentary “The Sound of Bronze: The Making of ‘The Adventures of Doc Savage'”, as well as original cover artwork by Doc Savage Bantam artist Bob Larkin.
RadioArchives.com is proud to present “The Adventures of Doc Savage”, the definitive version of the radio series that most Doc Savage and pulp fiction fans consider the finest audio version of the legendary Man of Bronze and his Fabulous Five!
First heard over National Public Radio and produced by Roger Rittner’s Variety Arts Radio Theatre, this brand new eight-CD collection presents two complete classic Doc Savage stories, fully dramatized and starring some of the best professional voice talents in the country. Based on the original novels by Lester Dent, writing as Kenneth Robeson, these timeless tales of adventure were adapted for audio by Rittner and well-known pulp historian and author Will Murray. Produced in full range stereo, each episode includes impressive sound effects and a full musical score.
This new compact disc collection – the first commercial release of this impressive thirteen-episode series – features two exciting multi-part adventures. First is the seven-part “Fear Cay”, an action-packed adventure in which Doc, Monk, Renny, Ham, Long Tom, Johnny, and cousin Pat Savage pursue the Fountain of Youth Gang to a remote Caribbean island full of booby traps and intrigue – including a mysterious force that can turn a man into a skeleton in a matter of seconds! Then, Doc and his team are enmeshed in the atmospheric six-part lost-city thriller, “The Thousand-Headed Man”, where they seek a lost expedition in the jungles of Indochina and an ancient treasure guarded by the fantastic Thousand Headed Man.
This collection has been completely remixed, remastered from the original recordings, and is presented in enhanced digital stereo. Also included is a brand new documentary, “The Sound of Bronze: Making ‘The Adventures of Doc Savage'”, featuring interviews, anecdotes from the cast and crew, and never before revealed details of how the series was conceived and created. The set, released in cooperation with Conde Nast, also features cover art by Doc Savage Bantam artist Bob Larkin and two bonus radio shows featuring two of the top detectives from 1940s, Philip Marlowe and Michael Shayne. And, at our website, you’ll find extensive liner notes written exclusively for RadioArchives.com by pulp historian and author Will Murray, writer of seven “Doc Savage” novels.
Priced at just $24.98, this exciting CD set, full of action, suspense, and mystery, is sure to occupy a special place in the personal library of any Doc Savage, pulp fiction, or old-time radio fan – and it’s now available from RadioArchives.com!
