Alex B Campbell Collection
Alex B. Campbell - Audio Book Chapters
A collection of audio versions of the chapters from Alex B. Campbell: The Prince Edward Island Premier Who Rocked the Cradle. The audio edition was recorded over several months by four distinct voices: H. Wade MacLauchlan, Premier Alex B. Campbell, and actors Gracie Finley and Duncan McIntosh. Premier Campbell reads speeches and other materials originally delivered almost 50 years ago. They are still powerful, as his is remarkable singing voice. Gracie Finley and Duncan McIntosh read selected quotations at the beginning of each chapter and other passages. Instrumental compositions provide smooth transitions between the chapters and a beautiful arrangement of Lucy Maud Montgomery's patriotic Island Hymn opens and closes the book.
The recordings were compiled, edited and digitally mastered by Rob Drew at the Robertson Library, UPEI using Adobe Audition. The resulting audio book is unabridged (and is in fact enhanced with new material not in the book) and includes almost 15 hours of high quality audio.
