Weird CD Alert: Shakespeare’s Greatest Hits


Made up of songs from Shakespeare’s plays, popular ballads of his time, and musical adaptations of some of his speeches and sonnets, Shakespeare’s Greatest Hits is, to say the least, an unusual compilation. The record was assembled by Berkeley theater company Subterranean Shakespeare and performed by a motley cast of local musicians in an even wider array of styles. Yeah, we know it’s crazy. But the songs aren’t half bad. And we bet you couldn’t find a better gift for the oddball Shakespeare lover in your life. Stream all 17 songs at CD Baby.
