Let's get the negatives out of the way first: The order pages don't list the artists per song, you just get a 'general' list of some of the performers, so I had to buy this 'blind' and was prepared to return it if it was less than brilliant. Now to the positives (yes, that's the only negative). Although a large percentage of the tracks here are from artists who are known for being in 'that show', there are some that aren't. However, every track is by someone who has been in that show, a replacement in a long run or a touring version. It doesn't matter. Every single track on 100 Hits - Musicals is a top quality recording. You'll find tunes here that you thought couldn't be bettered and yet, they have been. As a collector of Musical Theatre on DVD or CD I've even found several versions of songs that I haven't got which is wonderful when so many compilations seem to have more than their fair share of duff songs, performers or just the cheapest versions they could get hold of.
Once again DMG have come up with the goods (No, I don't work for them although I'd like to) The tunes are laid out in a sensible way, not 'thrown together' and there seems to have been some thought on how each CD would sound. The songs don't 'jar' because some tunes would have been better on another CD in the collection, they gel together very well indeed. they've even managed to get (quite) a few songs from the pen of the 'Musical Theatre King', Stephen Sondheim. Ah those beautiful tunes and with his witty, sad, internal rhyming lyrics... With this kind of music, you need to know how to sing it outside the context of the show yet still make it sound relevant. 'Send in the Clowns' for example is not a love song yet, so many performers, possibly because it's not sung within the context of a show, sing it as such.

Format: Audio CD
This is a superb collection of recordings, a great mixture of both familiar and less well-known musical names. But in every case, the versions here are vocally strong, excellently performed and beautifully recorded with proper orchestral backing. With 'value' compilations, you usually expect a couple of cheap, generic recordings, but that just isn't the case with this album at all - hats off to whoever compiled the track listing. Am actually quite shocked at the quality of this set!

It's a real mixed bag too, with everything from the West End to Broadway and even to the Silver Screen. For the price, there really isn't a better compilation of songs from the musicals - another absolutely excellent addition to the 100 Hits series.

A must for theatre fans, it has a great selection of songs from all the shows and being a singer is a great aid to help with auditions. A very good price for an amazing cd.

I bought this CD after realising my baby son had taken a liking to show tunes. It's great value and good to sing along to. Perfect for entertaining my three month old.

I read the reviews given for this CD and thought it would be ideal. Imagine my disappointment when I received it and found that most of the artists were unknown to me. Still I decided to play them all and then form an opinion. Unfortunately it hasn't changed. Some of the tracks are OK but the backing gives away the fact that they were not taken from the actual shows but were recorded later and in most cases pretty badly. Have bought several compilation albums and been well pleased with them but this one is doubtfully going to be played again. Pity as most of the songs are really enjoyable when sung properly. Only my opinion but.... Might try and sell it on ebay.
