HUNTER S. THOMPSON'S FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS - (1996 AUDIO DRAMA)




Original cover. Cant fid a better one:(
THE ALL POPULAR LSD/MESCALINE/ETHER PSYCHEDELIC TRIP TO LAS VEGAS BUT THIS TIME - IN AUDIO ONLY!
ARTIST`````````````HUNTER S. THOMPSON
ALBUM`````````````FEAR & LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS
GENRE`````````````AUDIO DRAMA
YEAR```````````````1996



MY VIEW:
If you liked the all popular movie version with Johnny Deep, listen to this.

ALBUM INFO:
A theater-of-the-mind, 25th anniversary audio version of Hunter Thompson's substance-fueled journey into the savage heart of the American Dream, performed with obvious relish by a dream cast of counterculture vets and latter-day hipsters. Among the standouts: Harry Stanton as the dryly laconic narrator, downtown filmmaker Jim Jarmusch as the Duke (Thompson's alter ego), Buck Henry as a sinister desk clerk, and Spinal Tap's Harry Shearer as a fatuous police chief. This was recorded before Terry Gilliam's 1998 film version with Johnny Depp, and in some ways it's even more faithful to its mad, visionary source material.

THE INSANE CAST INCLUDES:
Harry Dean Stanton(narrator)
Jim Jarmusch(Duke)
Maury Chaykin (Gonzo)
George Segal (Dr. Bloomquist)
Joan Cusack (Lucy)
Jann Wenner (Rolling Stone Editor)
Todd Snider (Hitchhiker)
Jimmy Buffett (Cop In Desert)
Harry Shearer (Cop At Flamingo Registration, Executive Director and Police Chief At D.A. Conference, Biker At Mint 400, Lacerda, Dwarf, Sound Equipment Man, Voices Of Nixon and Walter Cronkite)
Buck Henry (Desk Clerk)
