Recognised as the ultimate dramatisation of Conan Doyle's famous stories, these recordings have been acclaimed since their reissue by Hodder & Stoughton Audiobooks in 1995. They have been carefully remastered so that the sound is as good as possible without destroying the unique ambience of the original performances.
"The Blackmailer": Holmes resorts to some lawbreaking of his own in the pursuit of essential evidence on a powerful blackmailer.
"A Scandal in Bohemia": A delicate case involving an ardent monarch and an indiscreet photograph leads Holmes to the one person he could not outwit: the beautiful Irene Adler.
"Silverblaze": Holmes searches for a murderer and a missing racehorse called Silverblaze.
"The Speckled Band": Holmes and Watson are entreated by a woman to get to the bottom of her sister's horrible and mysterious death.
On this remastered first volume of The Best of Sherlock Holmes, actors John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson dazzle as the beloved English detective and his faithful assistant, Dr. Watson. Their interpretation of the classic material by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is considered to be the gold standard of Sherlock dramatizations; the dynamic chemistry between the pair is unmistakable. This volume contains “The Blackmailer”, “A Scandal in Bohemia” (where listeners are introduced to the clever and beautiful adversary Irene Adler), “Silverblaze”, and “The Speckled Band”.

A good listen but the delivery is quite dated.
The Derek Jacobi versions are the ones to go for....
