Did Richard burton record a version of the poem :Lady of Shalott?

A heavy horse, like a shire horse clip clops down to Camelot. Richard Burton includes the line : Through the Oats and Through the Barley.....

Or have I got it all wrong?

    If he didn't then my mind can conjure it!  It does sound "right."

    It's not in his audio biography:

    but... it's not complete.  For example it does not include the recordings he made of the poems of Thomas Hardy who is very pastoral:

    And he was part of an audio version of the musical Camelot.
