I confess, I love the play Annie. When I start watching it, I get a grin on my face that doesn't go away until it's over. What this says about me, I'm not sure, but it's true.
I was delighted when Disney made this TV version of the stage show. Now, I could actually watch something much closer to the original then the 80's movie. When I realized that there was a soundtrack available, I went out and bought it. I've found it has the same effect on me the stage version does. I've got a grin on my face and I sing along with every song.
The cast is fabulous. The fact that they're having fun comes through with every word sung. And all the songs I love from the musical are present and accounted for. "Tomorrow," "NYC" (with a fun cameo), "You're Never Fully Dressed without a Smile," and "I Don't Need Anything but You" are just some of the highlights of this fun collection. Granted, they did leave out a couple from the original, but I've got the original cast recording if I really miss them.
There are a couple downsides, however. Kristin Chenoweth's roll is too small for her talent. But, since this is in keeping with the original, I find I can over look it. My bigger problem is finding myself walking down the street singing these songs for several days after hearing it. "Little Girls" and "Easy Street" can get you some mighty strange looks. Trust me.
Whenever I need a boost, I put this CD in the player and enjoy. Definitely worth buying for any fan of Annie or musicals in general.

This soundtrack is great! If you liked the movie you'll love it. All the cast sound brilliant on it. It's taken from the 1999 Disney movie, so there are some songs that weren't on the 1982 movie soundtrack (such as NYC and Something Was Missing) but there are some missing too (such as Dumb Dog and Let's Go To The Movies). Overall, I'd say I prefer it to the 1982 movie soundtrack though, as it's performed better. This is a great soundtrack, I'd recommend it to anyone who likes the movie!

This 1999 television movie soundtrack is more faithful to the original stage production and includes the songs `NYC' and `Something Was Missing', not used in the 1982 motion picture starring Albert Finney and Carol Burnett. Music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin, it tells the story of orphan Annie and her longing to find her real parents. Although this dream never materializes, Annie does find happiness: cue Finale.

In the title role of Annie is Alicia Morton, who sings beautifully, particularly her rendition of `Tomorrow' which, due to the orchestrations, has a lullaby feel to it. Annie goes into her own world during this number and takes the listener with her, more so in this version than other recordings of this show. As Miss Hannigan, Kathy Bates has a softer approach than Ms Burnett's iconic performance - which is hard to forget, despite Bates' best efforts. `Little Girls' seems a tad restrained, although she pulls off the short reprise of this number towards the end with gusto. There are good performances by Victor Garber (Daddy Warbucks), Audra McDonald (Grace), Alan Cumming (Rooster), a fleeting, if not perfectly cast appearance by Kristin Chenoweth (Lily St Regis) and a cameo turn by Broadway's original Annie, Andrea McArdle as the Star-To-Be.

CD highlights include the previously mentioned `Tomorrow', the infectious `You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile' performed by the orphans and `Maybe/Tomorrow (reprise)' sung with elegance and grace, by Grace (Audra McDonald). A touching moment in the show and delivered on this recording with heartfelt sincerity.

Orphan Annie has wrapped them all around her cute little finger, but there is definitely a touch of the original magic lost along the way. Despite a few ups and downs, this recording should appeal and entertain most. For true Annie enthusiasts, I would still say the original motion picture recording is the best, but this one is certainly worth a listen.

This is of no comparison to the original. The quality of the singers and the music is dire when compared to the 1982 version. I regret downloading this as now I cant return it.
