This is the ultimate blood brothers soundtrack. I have seen the musical twice and love it. It is funny and sad. Its realistic and british musical theatre at its best and shows real people and their emotions. Definatly the best recording i hope i can persuade you to get this and i hope you enjoy as much as i do.

I strongly urge anyone who hasn't seen or heard Blood brothers to do so; even if you don't usually like musicals you can't fail to be entertained and moved by this one. It has to be one of the best. A great story, well observed, fabulous songs, good character development and a really moving experience. Although this was a great production and cast, unfortunately I found the sound quality really let the recording down. It is echoey and hollow as if it had been recorded in a bathroom and 'Tell me it's not true' the most moving song lacks the roundness and big build up of the original soundtrack. Stick to the original recording.

I recently went to the Pheonix Theatre in London and watched this musical and thought that it was very good. In the break between scenes, I went and bought the CD from the vendor and listened to it as soon as I got home. It is great. You can relive every moment in the theatre when listening to this and it all comes to life again. If you haven't seen this musical, I would recommend it and if you have seen it, then I'm suprised you haven't already got it.

This is by far the best recording of Blood Brothers, the best musical ever written! Actually this is the only recording of the show that I have but I have listened to samples from the others and you can't beat Stephanie Lawrence as Mrs J!! (apart from Linda Nolan of course if anyone has seen the current UK touring production.....if there was a recording of the UK touring cast it would be the icing on the cake!!!) The other recordings are OK but I find Petula Clark can often sound more Irish than Liverpuddlian! The other recordings are perhaps a little out-dated.
If you haven't seen the show live yet then you have missed out on a lot!! No recording could ever do Blood Brothers justice. The sheer emotion of the storyline supported by the incredibly simple yet captivating score will leave you thinking about it for weeks after!
Anyway.....back to the recording.....every cast member on this particular recording has a strong voice and there are no major sections that I would pick fault with. All of the music is included on this CD with the exception of a few, short reprisals/previews of individual numbers (e.g. the preview of "Oh Bright New Day" in Act I). The songs that stand out in particular are the upbeat "Oh Bright New Day", the lush ballad "I'm Not Saying a Word" and of course the heart-rendering ("Easy Terms" later reprised as "Light Romance") and "Tell Me It's Not True" with Stephanie Lawrence never holding back her fantastically powerful voice.
If you only want to buy one recording of the show then this would have to be it!!! The cast brilliantly portray the comical, romantic and heart-breaking aspects of the story, but still leave new things to be discovered at the live performances. Similarly if you have to only see one musical in your life then Blood Brothers would be the perfect choice!!!

Having seen this show five times now over the years this recording of the show is a superb recording, the late Stephanie Lawrence was a fantastic Mrs J, personally only bettered by Lyn Paul (only wish they would re-record it with her), the whole cast in this production did it great justice, if you have never seen the show then all i can say is you must if you have not then buy this CD and enjoy one of the best shows ever written and I will bet you will then go and see it.........

This is the best version of the one of the best musicals around.
If you want a musical with a difference you can't go wrong with this one. If you want a happy, jolly musical go and see Wizard of Oz but if you want something different you're at the right place. It's a story that will move you. You'll be laughing one minute and crying the next.
I should get back to the cd... I've listened to all versions of this show and think that this is the best one. The cast that they've used is brilliant, there are certain people I would have liked to see or hear like Stephen Palfreman who played Mickey in London but nevertheless..excellent.

Close your eyes and play this CD and you are back in the theatre listening to this wonderful musical. Hours later you still have the music and the words buzzing around your head as it is so memorable. Stephanie Lawerence is very good playing Mrs Johnstone, and was an exceptional singer but the Liverpool accent was perhaps best produced by Linda Nolan although she did not have the quality of Stephanie's voice. I have see the musical four times with the same Narrator,and he is is superior to Warwick Evans. Also, Eddie is today played with gusto and at all four performances he has been fantastic and what an accent. At all performances the audience has given a standing ovation to the musical and its cast. The CD relates the story with its wonderful music and words exceptionally well, backed up with the important sections from the Narrator. Buy this CD and relive the magic of Blood Brothers.
