Subject:        Hamelleto, Or Prosciuttino

Many years ago, my classes and I enjoyed it when I played the recording
of "Hamelleto, Anna Russell's interpretation of the non-existent Verdi
opera treatment of "Hamlet."

When I left that job, I left the tape (which I'd made from a friend's
record) and I've been trying to replace it ever since. The album was
"Anna Russell in Darkest Africa" and it has been out of print for years.
I've just discovered that the album has been reissued as "Anna Russell:
Encore?", and is available from Amazon.com. I think it is now really two
of the old Russell LPs on one CD.

A lot of the jokes are years out of date, but it is still very funny.
I'm really pleased to be able to hear it again.
