Ibsen, Henrik / Repertory Theater of Lincoln Center – “An Enemy of The People” – [Caedmon]

Heard a fine superimposition mix of this back on

then the DJ donated this 3 lp set to KFJC! Thx, Sluggo
Brothers square off against each other, Mayor vs Doctor.
A town prospers off the illness of visitors but at the
cost of the health of the townspeople. The individual
is pitted against the majority, but that majority is
quickly relabeled authority. Meanwhile in the battle of
science and politics, corporations and the press have
their own maneuvers. This Caedmon (!!) release includes
a post-game side-long chat between Harold Clurman and
Arthur Miller, whose adaptation was used for this recording.
Miller astutely predicts future relevancies for this work,
the river that runs through this album ran through Flint MI
all too recently. Giving a different taste to the line
“We’ll go to America and this whole thing will be like
a dream.” Recorded in 1971, adapted by Miller in 1950,
originally written by Ibsen in 1882. Awaiting your KFJC
experimentation now…
