Format: Audio CD
The enhanced quality of the remastered original concept album adds to its considerable attractiveness. In this initial guise Evita is far more rocky than in its stage performances. (The rock band and Che's The Lady's got Potential featured in this recording were reinstated for the cinema version.) As well as being more rocky, (the term rock opera hardly seemed relevant to the stage orchestrations) this recording features the opulent sound of the LSO, most obviously in Julie Covington's hit version of Don't Cry For Me Argentina. Covington, like Elaine Paige in the London Cast recording, is equal parts singer and actress. She skilfully portrays Evita as a three dimensional character through the use of her wide tonal range and broad register control. The transition to the stage fine tuned many of the characterisations. Paul Jones as Juan Peron, in particular, seems to lack the age and heaviness in his voice that was to become distinctive on the stage. Colm Wilkinson's Che is in the rocker style as taken up by the casting of David Essex on the West End. This earthy "common man" element works convincingly. It is far removed from Mandy Patinkin's more lyric Broadway recording. Covington and Wilkinson slug out their arguments in their raw, belting voices. This brings a convincing unity to their interaction. Covington contrasts this with her beguiling head voice to great effect. More than any stage recording, she utilises microphone technique to bring intimacy to her characterisation. The most musically adventurous writing is heard in Act 2. The Broadway recording is the only other readily available version of this music sung in English. Most of it was cut and replaced by You Must Love Me in the film version.Read more ›

This is the best version of Andrew Webbers musical Evita. Judy Covington is absolutely fanastic. Her voice is superb. It is a pity yuou know who in the film version did not mime to Judy.Pity the case it resides in broke.I can recommend this new dignal remaster version .

This is the definitive version of Evita. It still thrills as much as when I first bought it on vinyl in 1976.

Amazing album. I had the original on vinyl but it was borrowed and never returned. This is just as good as I remembered. Julie Covington's voice is perfect for the part of Evita.

The cds are in good condition; a few minor surface marks but they didn't affect the playability or sound. Highly recommended!

I had the studio edition first as an LP but my brother scratched it. Anyway it was lovely to hear Julie Covington's voice again, I always preferred this version.
