I do believe we are in dire need of some more Armitage Voice!
Some photographs I can like more, some less.
Some roles are more attractive, some leave us wanting more (poor Kruger)
But the voice is the one constant.
I’ve limited myself to the amount of RA audiobooks I listen to.
The simple truth is I stay up late, miss sleep just ploughing through the 12 or so hours of delicious velvet voice.
Believe me, I learnt that listening to Armitage audiobooks can be unhealthy when I was in the grips of The Lords of the North.
This is an absolute favorite of mine.
Ted Hughes ‘Song’.
He had me at ‘Oh Lady’!
In 2007 Richard Armitage read from the letters of the poet Ted Hughes in BBC Radio 4’s Afternoon Play
Last, but not least, it’s only fitting to include ‘Yours’ by Leo Marks.
I can only urge, request and… well… beg for some more Armitage audiobooks, narrations, TV commercials!
