‘Just rain! Tell that to the dolphins!’
The brand new first-time vinyl edition of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: Quandary Phase comes on heavyweight blue vinyl, packaged in the lavish style of the preceding Primary Phase, Secondary Phase and Tertiary Phase LP releases.
Here, for the first time ever on vinyl, are Episodes 19 to 22 of the BBC radio series. First broadcast in 2005, the Quandary Phase is based upon the Douglas Adams’s fourth novel So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish. This is the first ever publication of the original radio edits of the Quandary Phase, as heard on their original Radio 4 broadcast.
Hitching a lift back to Earth after it miraculously reappeared, Arthur Dent returns to his cottage and tries to resume normal life. But an encounter with a striking woman named Fenchurch leads to a series of unanswered questions. Why has the planet’s entire population of dolphins vanished, leaving behind them some very charming crystal bowls? Who is Wonko the Sane, and what is God’s Last Message to His Creation? Meanwhile Ford Prefect is Having revelations of his own, and as for Marvin the Paranoid Android...well, just don’t ask. Suffice to say, things may never be the same again.
Starring William Franklyn as The Book, with Simon Jones as Arthur Dent, Geoffrey McGivern as Ford Prefect, Bill Paterson as Rob McKenna, Jane Horrocks as Fenchurch, Sandra Dickinson as Tricia McMillan and Stephen Moore as Marvin the Paranoid Android, with a guest cast including Arthur Smith, June Whitfield, Stephen Fry, Jackie Mason, Rula Lenska, Patrick Moore and Christian Slater, with music by Philip Pope and Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens. Adapted, Directed and Co-Produced by Dirk Maggs
Two 180g heavyweight coloured vinyl discs are presented in illustrated wallets inside a rigid, bound 20 page book, including a moving tribute to Douglas Adams written by Stephen Fry and sleeve notes by Jem Roberts, Adams’s official biographer.
