5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, fantasmagorical recording! 2 Sep 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you haven't seen the stage musical this cast recording is a great calling card for the new West End hit. It relives memories of the gorgeous sets and memorable scenes from the production, the great all-star cast, and the wonderful, hummable music from the show. Compared to the musical score from the 1968 movie on which the stage musical is based, this new recording modernizes the movie's score, presents the classic songs in a livelier tempo, includes new songs and rewrites some of the lyrics -- making the score a perfect musical accompaniment for the lively stage production.
The voices are good, Michael Ball in particular (he has a new song, TEAMWORK, which shows off his powerful voice as well as the beautiful and sweet notes of the lullaby HUSHABYE MOUNTAIN}. You will also enjoy the classic Toots Sweet, Posh, You Too, Me Ol Bamboo, The Roses of Success, Truly Scrumptious and a few more songs adapted from the movie. But nothing will set you cheering and thumping more than the Oscar-nominated title song -- CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG! See the show - if you can't, this wonderful, fantasmagorical recording will set you dreaming about a magical flying car that soars into the night skies!

4.0 out of 5 stars Chitty Flys Into Hearts.... But It Doesn't Soar! 22 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the legendry film about the flying car has landed on the London Palladium and flown into our hearts! Michael Ball (Marius in Les Miserables) leads the cast as Caracticus Potts the misunderstood inventor. His singing ability is out of this world and he makes the score of Chitty sound beautiful, singing each song smoothly, enthusiastically and perfect! He was perfectly cast as Caracticus and the chemisty between him and co-star Emma Williams is great!
Emma Williams stormed into the media's attention when she was cast as the leading lady Truely Scrumptious. Apparently she is the youngest person to ever take the lead in a west end musical, although i think Lea Salonga was younger when she premiered as Kim in the London Production of Miss Saigon! Although Emma Williams does do a very good job it is obvious her accent is forced! Her singing ability is good but nothing to be considered extraordinary just yet!! Her interpretation is good and she looks right, but it is obvious this was a tough job for her!
The supporting cast are all brilliant in particular Richard O'Brian as the child catcher! He brings just the right amount of comedy to the character whilst still being completely terrifying!
Top songs of this album are Hushabye Mountain, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and You Two!
Ofcourse the real star of the show is Chitty herself and unfortunately she doesn't sing! However this is a very entertaining album and one worth owning... but it will never be as good as seeing the show on stage as we dont manage to get the enthusiasm as when we see Chitty fly etc!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasmagorical! 31 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
We waited and waited and now she's arrived. What can I say. For anyone who has seen this show or loves the film, this soundtrack is a must. The all-star cast includes the likes of Michael Ball (Les Mis), Brian Blessed (Cats) and Richard O'Brien (Rocky Horror), all of whom give strong performances delivering the songs with warmth and enthusiasm. Even Ball, who I have never really been a fan of, gives subtlety and intelligence to the part of Potts, made famous by Dick Van Dyke.
All the magic from the stage musical comes through in this fantastic recording making it one to play again and again. Director Adrian Noble said that working on Chitty wasn't work because he was directing the happiest cast in the west-end. Two words; It Shows!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hitty Witty Bang Bang 31 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
Absoloutely superb! The london show of the great film musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is quite simply a huge success! The set, the cherography and the costumes are amazing! However it is the music and actors that truely (scrumptious as they are) steal the show! Micahel Ball plays the leading and demanding Caracticus Potts, this album truely shows Michael at his best, reknowned for more "serious" musicals we now see him tackling the tender lullabyes and up-beat folk songs! Emma Williams does a good Job as Truely Scrumtious with her sweet voice! Nicola Macaulife is amazing as the Baroness! The album has all the old faverates the movie has to offer and a few new great songs! The orchestrations are brilliant and this truely is a fantasmogrical album! Well worth the money and i promise you you wont regreat it simply for Micahel Balls heart warming rendition of Hushabye Mountain!

4.0 out of 5 stars Chitty Chitty Brill Brill 25 Aug 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've waited with baited breath for this CD since seeing the show in March. The CD really captures the shows energy, buzz and magic. Just hearing the overture made me want to go again. The show has a strong cast headed by Michael Ball, who has made the part his own. A new song for Caractacus Potts 'Teamwork' is a rousing number, which is perfect for Michael Ball's powerful voice, his fans will love it, and you'll be humming the catchy tune. If the child catcher still scares you, listen out for Richard O'Brian's new song Kiddy-Widdy-Winkies. The 4 new songs on the whole fit perfectly (theres is one I found disappointing) If you loved Chitty Chitty Bang Bang the film you won't be disappointed. If you haven't seen the show you'll want to. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a childhood favourite which just got better.
