Here's a gift for the TSE list -- a decent non-Eliot recording of LSJAP:

Speaker: John Born

Another recent discovery: at http://www.audibleperceptions.com there
are some mp3 audio files of readings of Eliot poems (and others).
I found some problems with the links there though.  The URLs that
actually get the poems are listed below.
