Format: Audio CD
Most people come to 'Grease' having experienced one of the many modern productions or, more likely, the motion picture version. The show that exists today (and the film) is quite a departure from the original Broadway production which was grittier and edgier, and this cast recording reflects that. No, it isn't as slick as the more well known recordings, but it also isn't overproduced and the producers have captured the energy and rawness which made this show a smash on Broadway in the first place.
The cast and the band perform with gusto and makes one wish that the film version adhered more truthfully to the stage show. Adrienne Barbeau as Rizzo, Barry Bostwick (of 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' fame)as Danny and Carole Demas as Sandy invest the characters with humanity and honesty and their vocals are quite different to what one expects. Barbeau's rendition of 'There Are Worse Things I Could Do' is, for me, the definitive one, whilst Danny and Sandy are conveyed excellently.
The original writers of 'Grease' intended the music to reflect the time the show was set in and indeed this album reflects how well they acheved this with songs such as 'Those Magic Changes', 'Freddy, My Love' and 'Rock and Roll Party Queen' with the musical arrangements also supporting the 50s sound. The new songs introduced in the motion picture version and subsequently used in later stage production do not reflect this artistic choice, and have always jarred against the 50s sound for me which is one of the reasons i prefer the original stage version.
So if you really want to experience 'Grease' and the 50s nostalgia then this is the album for you.

Great to go back to the show's roots and hear it in its original recording...yes, it is a bit rough and ready, but it is that which gives this recording its charm and it is very, very listenable! Great stuff!

Excellent recording - I wanted it to rehearse and learn the songs - the only disappointment is that it doesn't contain "Shakin at the High School Hop".

The Broadway Original 22 Feb. 2001
By P Magnum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The original Broadway version of Grease is much different that the movie version. The chief difference is that the biggest hits from the movie, the title song, "You're The One That I One Want" & "Hopelessly Devoted To You", were written specifically for the movie and do not appear here. The play also had a harder edge to it, taking place in an urban environment and was more explicit. Fans of the movie will recognize songs like "Greased Lightnin'", "Summer Nights", "Beauty School Dropout", "Born To Hand Jive" and "We Go Together" but other standouts include "All Choked Up", "Those Magic Changes" & "Freddy My Love".

Grease, Grit and Parody 17 Nov. 2006
By KRA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
At some point in the early 1970's, nostaglia for the 1950's started running out of control. At a time when America was dealing with many social changes, somehow the decade of the 1950's became yearned after for

fun, innocence, rock and roll, and postwar prosperity. The realty being it was a decade that also included

economic issues, open descrimination, and very tame music (the name "the quiet generation" was there for a reason).

Grease came to life as a parody of the 1950's nostaglia craze, and it painted a truer, grittier portrait of the late 50's at an urban high school. The movie that came out in 1978, and the Broadway revival of the 90's whitewashed the story, and cleaned up the language so much the original Broadway musical got lost in the shuffle.

The great score is lead by Adrienne Barbaue, Barry Bostwick, and Carol Demas, and a number of songs never made it to the film, including Those Magic Changes, and Freddy My Love. Yes, in the 1950's there still was a draft!. Adrienne's character of Rizzo steals the show with her numbers, Look At Me I'm Sandra Dee, and There Are Worse Things I Could Do, finally the "Bad Girl" is allowed to be human. Summer Nights, It's Raining On Prom Night, and Rock N Roll Party Queen speak to the teenager that remains in all of us.

Enjoy this very real trip into the late 1950's

This is the REAL Grease. 7 Jan. 2007
By Scott E. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Grease, here in its original form, is an adventurous, raw, rowdy, INSIGHTFUL show that paints a very accurate picture of a pivotal moment in American history when rock and roll was giving birth to the Sexual Revolution. Grease is not a silly, brainless 50s parody, but is instead a smart, insightful, alternative piece of theatre (inspired in many ways by HAIR), with real muscle, attitude, rawness, and a thrilling, subversive, over-sexed energy. If you want to hear what Grease SHOULD sound like, if you want to hear the real sound of early rock and roll, get this original 1972 recording. Forget the awful revival, and forget the movie (as fun as it may be) -- THIS is Grease. [...]

The Original, The One That I Want! 22 July 2006
By Tom George - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I saw the original production of Grease and it was hysterical. It was originally intended as an affectionate parody of the 50's and was a laugh riot. Then Hollywood got a hold of it and turned it into the cotton candy, pop fluff that the world see's it as now, totally missing the point (and losing alot of the fun). The original cast led by Barry Bostwick, Adrienne Barbaue and Carol Demas, were a blast! Stick to this version if you like real parody, humorous and true to the 50's rock style.

GREASE ... version one 7 Feb. 2004
By Mark Andrew Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
GREASE began at an off-Broadway theatre on Valentnes Day 1972. At first it didn't look like a hit, but it was a cheap show to run: Small cast, small orchestra, and a basic unit set and althouh not selling out, it was attracting enough of a crowd to warrant a move to the Royale theatre on Broadway where it ran..and ran..and ran. It was still running in 1978 when the movie came out and suddenly GREASE became a huge hit on screen and on stage. When it finally closed in 1981 it had become Broadway's longest running show. (A few years later A CHORUS LINE would overtake that record.)
The original cast album was done by M-g-M records and was not a well produced affair. Sound is not well balanced and the performers really seem to be overdoing it but after all, the stage show is a satire on the 1950s.
On CD the sound is acceptable and the whole score is here except for the opening of Act II (In the show, "Shakin' at the High School Hop" segues into "It's Raining on Prom Night." On the recording, just the latter song is heard.)
While GREASE wil never be ranked as one of Broadway's great shows, it is still frequently performed by community groups and high schools (though often with a censored script: the original is quite filthy!!) Because of the popularity of the songs written for the movie ("Grease", "Hopelessly Devoted to You", "You're the One That I Want" and "Sandy") many modern productions try to incorporate these songs. Its a mistake because the move script was re-written to set these numbers up and they don't really work in the stage production.
