It was released on Febru The album was produced by George Young, Genre: Hard rock, blues rock. Excellent Dramatization, but Stick To The Book! Like the other reviewer, I am more familiar with the full-length, unabridged Jeeves readings (although I prefer Frederick Davidson to Jonathan Cecil), but I often find the abridged dramatizations to be entertaining as well.
