I'm trying to track down an audio cassette of the classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty that my sister and I used to listen to when we where young children in the early '80's.
It was narrated by a lady and I remember there being music before and after the story faded in and out. Perhaps the biggest thing to point out that might make this particular version stand out was the evil fairy or witch who was called Hepsibar (that's my spelling).
I can only remember the part of the story where sleeping beauty 'pricked her dainty finger' (on the spindle) and later in the story Hepsibar fell from a window. Her screaming on the way down to her death terrified me!

So, I know it's a long shot but is anyone familiar with this? I cannot find any reference to this particular version on the web.

Is it not even Sleeping Beauty?

Well, I can't help you with this audio mystery but it does remind me of something similar from when I was a child. Some of those childrens books that came with audio tape or a 33 record had scary cues for a growing mind.

My fear response was connected with a scene from the story of The Gingerbread Man when I heard the sound of screeching violins which happened whenever the protagonist was in danger or about to be eaten by a wolf. Total anxiety! Sort of like the shower scene in Psycho I suppose. My family members still tease me about it at least once a year.

The only scientific thing to do is listen to various Sleeping Beauty tapes until you get to to the right one.

Nope....he thinks it's the same one, but it was narrated by a British person.

As i said cal, it is the same one but its got a different voice over narrating and the character voices are different.
Fascinating stuff, youve made my day!
What was the other one that you had in mind?

Oh, I don't think the other one is it. It was Sleeping Beauty, The Pizza Delivery Man and the Plumber.

No, I wasn't, maybe it was subconscious.

And sorry, I couldn't find another version of the one I posted.
