People, people, people!

The original cast recording of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is on youtube. This is a seismic event. Pre-Taylor/Burton, Uta Hagen spits hoarse fire and Arthur Hill takes a less rumpled, more frantic tack than Richard Burton.

George Grizzard and Melinda Dillon feel more present than their film counterparts, particularly Dillon, who's drunkenness is more mischievous and less sleepy.

This is a great listen. Just great.
