5.0 out of 5 stars energetic and alive 4 Sep 2001
Format:Audio CD
I really enjoyed this album. The stage show is so much faster and more energetic than the film. OK, so the album may seem a bit rough compared to later versions of Rocky Horror, but this is the first cast recording and the enthusisasm and energy of the cast make this a lot of fun. Out of all the Rocky Horror albums, this remains my favourite because of its originality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as the film soundtrack 29 Nov 1999
Format:Audio CD
One thing you have to remember about Rocky Horror is that it was a stageshow before being a film. The stageshow was small. So small, in fact, that its largest initial audience was around 50 people. This is the origianl cast recording, completed in under 24 hours, and marketed like tomorrow doesn't exist. The band is small and tinny, the vocals are a little dodgy to say the least at times, but it does feature 2 songs not available on the film sound track. Buy it - if only to see how the Rocky Horror spiralled into the success story it is nowadays.

4.0 out of 5 stars Original London Cast 10 Dec 1999
Format:Audio CD
The singing is a bit cheesy, but not only is this the first ever live performance of The Rocky Horror Show but it is all sung by those in the movie... Tim Curry, Patricia Quinn, Little Nell and Richard O'Brien. However, there is no Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Peter Hinwood (Rocky) or, obviously, Meatloaf.

4.0 out of 5 stars The original and the BEST!!! 26 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the first ever Rocky Horror soundtrack and the raw energy of the vocal performance is what makes it an essential buy for any Rocky Horror fan. Many of the film cast appear on this record, including Tim Curry and Richard O'Brien, and this soundtrack was recorded very early on in the original run of the show. The songs had only been sung a few times on stage and the music has a very "live" feel to it. Many people consider the film to be the best version of the music, but to hear this record is like hearing the music in the way it had been intended to be heard. A true Rocky Horror classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars a note to all 20 Feb 2002
Format:Audio CD
The theatre in which rocky was first performed was the upstairs theatre and 63 people attended on the opening night this is the orignal cd and may not be the picture show version in fact it is better as you get the flavour of the actual show like you do all live or theatre casts as every rocky performance sounds so different and is different. This Cd is richard O briens image, concept and idea for the show, THIS IS THE SHOW a musta have for all music lovers and rocky fans

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but not as good as the film
This isn't a bad version of the soundtrack, but for me it just doesn't match up to the film version. The tunes are slightly different as are some of the lyrics.
