001267 Thompson, Hunter S. The Balance of Terror 2 CD CD Audio CD-R 1977 As New A 2 cd set of a Q and A Forum held in Boulder, Colorado sometime in 1977. Hunter talks of Nixon, Politics, Rolling Stone, Vietnam, writing, journalism, drug use, and generally has fun with those in the audience. There's not much left to be said about Hunter's departure. For myself, I felt a loss the moment I heard the unconfirmed reports of his suicide that Sunday evening while I was climbing the Grapevine driving thru sheets of rain. Very fitting. And to quote a buddy of mine who knew & did business with Hunter: The world is a far less interesting place without Hunter. Indeed. The sound quality is nice and clear. CD1 runs 44.6 minutes, and CD2 runs 34.5 minutes. These will run on most PC and Mac platforms, and any home/audio system. I say most because there's always that eccentric system that refuses to cooperate whether it's supposed to or not. I've tested this set on both a PC and a Mac, and both a home and car cd player. Each disc comes with a printed label in a slim case. Home $25.00 Place Order
