ANGEL BRIGHT CD AUDIO VERSION-2 DISC SET. released 17th November 2018
On Monday the 18th and Tuesday the 19th of June 2018, I spent two days in a London recording studio with my all-time favourite actress, the magnificent Fenella Fielding OBE. She starred in one of my all-time favourite films, Carry On Screaming, and now she was going to narrate my Christmas book, Angel Bright.
When she came into the studio on the first morning she seemed tiny and frail, but at aged almost 91 years old, looked fabulous and still had more energy and spirit than most people half her age, and there was still that mischievous twinkle in her eye. I was completely awe-struck meeting her so I just gave her a quick hug, but truth be told, I almost bowed! Once she was seated in front of the microphone there was an extraordinary moment when she spoke, and one of the most recognisable voices on the planet said, 'are we ready darling?'.
She sounded exactly like the star of fifty years ago, and it sent shivers up my spine.
She was still a busy lady and much in demand, plus she was regularly reading to sell-out crowds from her recently released memoirs, Do You Mind If I Smoke?. I was absolutely honoured that she'd agreed to voice my book.
We had two fascinating days together and with the magic of her voice, personality and perfectly nuanced delivery, she took my simple Christmas story and turned it into a fable to touch your heart. There were tears in the studio those two days.
Sadly she passed away on the 11th of September after suffering a severe stroke two weeks earlier. Angel Bright was her final project.
I have dedicated this audio version to Fenella, and this two-disc set will be released on her birthday, the 17th of November.
It has a running-time of 2 hours and 33 minutes of pure Fenella Fielding magic.
I must thank her great friend Simon McKay for coordinating and producing the recording, sound engineer Lloyd Jukes and Nick Sykes, owner of Rooster studios for their technical excellence.
