5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for an intro 9 Jun 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you're just discovering Phantom this is an excellent introduction to it, the songs are all phantastic of course. The only thing I would say though, if this is the only Phantom CD you plan on buying, it has the alternate music of the night version, not the one that features in the musical. While excellent in itself, the other one is far superior.
I would recommend people to buy the complete recording rather than this. Not only does it have the better Music of the Night, it's only a few pounds more on Amazon and you can really appreciate the amazing achievement that is Phantom, it's the next best thing to being there. The highlights are great musically but it could be a bit difficult if you want to follow the story as there is a lot missing.
It still get's 5 stars though - it is Phantom after all...

Hear the original London cast in all their tuneful glory! I now have both this version and the 2004 film version, and I have to say that the latter does not compare at all. Listening to Crawford and Brightman, who can *really* sing, makes me break out in a grin and shiver of glee each and every time. For those of you that have been lucky enough to see the musical on stage, this CD will bring all those wonderful memories back.
This CD contains all the main themes and songs from the musical, and is perfect for those who don't know the story off by heart. The complete recording is great for people who know the lyrics and plot, but for those without a copy of the libretto the half speaking-half singing between the main songs may be confusing. Your choice will depend on whether you want to relive the Phantom experience in full, or simply listen to those particular songs you remember.
Either way, nobody should be without a copy of the original London cast recording of Phantom of the Opera. The music is pure genius, Andrew Lloyd Webber at his best. Filled with emotion and perfectly matched to the story of the Phantom.

Absolutely fantastic! This CD has all the best parts of a truly brilliant show! The music, the singing everything! is magical and will bring you back to the first time you saw the Phantom - if you haven't already seen it you will be rushing out to buy the tickets!

5.0 out of 5 stars Phantom of the Operate the highlights 17 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finally went to see this show and took my Mum for her 90th birthday and was most pleasantly surprised - thoroughly enjoyed it and Mum was thrilled to bits. Bought the CD of the Highlights of Phantom (a copy each) and we both loved it. Would recommend it if you particularly only want the most loved songs from the show.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware which version you buy... 13 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD second-hand and I assumed it would be the same as the one featured on the Amazon page. But I believe the one featured on Amazon was remastered in 1999, and the one I bought is an original from 1986. The vocals sound wonderful for a 26-year-old CD, but unfortunately this is just one hour-long track and you have to manually skim through it to get to a song you want. Quite annoying.

If you can, please buy a remastered version and not the original 80s version, if you want to avoid the hassle and a migraine every time you want to skip a track.

4.0 out of 5 stars Claire and John great, but Graham... 22 Oct 2000
By Linda
Format:Audio CD
Claire Moore and John Barrowman are great as Christine and Raoul, but Graham Bickley's voice is flat, emotionless, etc. If you want the best hilights CD, get the original London cast hilights. Michael, Sarah and Steve are all amazing.

1.0 out of 5 stars A con 25 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
Every track on this CD is run together as one very long track so if you want to hear a particular song you have to skim through every song before it. Rubbish

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great
This is an OK recording of "Phantom" but I still like the film version and the original Broadway cast version better eventhough John Barrowman was terrific singing the Raoul part.
