Can anyone that has already purchased this particular release please tell: does this also come in a slipcase with slimline jewel case housing the two discs and a booklet with full libretto? (like the recent remasters of Sunset Boulevard and Aspects of Love). Although I have all the original cd releases, being the ALW nut I am, I do not mind adding these remasters to my collection if this is indeed so. Thanks!

There is a slipcase but it's only an outer cover, like an O. The booklet contains the libretto. In a way I like this packaging more than the slipcase editions of the Lloyd Webber recordings. The libretto booklets were separate from the inlay booklet. So it might be better to have the libretto in the inlay booklet.

And yes these remasters are superb. They sound so much better than the previous CDs. Despite the talk about the Loudness War I know that these reissues haven't committed any Loudness War offences. They still sound dynamic even if they are at a higher volume than the original releases. They still keep their ratio of loud to soft parts.

I know this is outside the topic of Superstar but please can you tell me what you think of the sound of the remastered version of Cats Broadway? I'm pleased that the Broadway cast album of the musical is available in the UK and worldwide. I think it's so much better than the London album with Paige.
