5.0 out of 5 stars Bah....!!! 29 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
With it`s mix of festive tunes and a dash of "Humbug" this traditionalstory transfers itself into a musical before you even realise it. Nearlyall the songs of this stage version were also used in the film version, inwhich Albert Finney played "Scrooge". All in all a lovely soundtrack, andideal to add to anyones collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas cracker. 30 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
For many years it has been our family tradition to put this CD on first thing Christmas day...as soon as the overture echoes through the house we know Christmas has begun. Theatre cast recordings are meant to reflect the theatrical experience,so they tend not to be as technically perfect and enhanced as film soundtracks.Listening to it you should be able to close your eyes and imagine you are in the theatre. People like Stratford Johns and Jon Pertwee are not singers....they are good actors who can carry a tune , and they "act" the songs as much as sing them.This album is the perfect example of what a theatre cast recording should be,topped off by a magical performance from Anthony Newley , probably the greatest British musical star. He steals the show with his interpretations of the Bricusse songs,and the rest of the cast give their all to some rousing numbers like "Thank You Very Much". On stage Newley was the perfect Scrooge , and this album is the perfect Christmas cracker.

This cast album starring Anthony Newley; Stratford Johns and Tom Watt is the best version of the show on record. AT was masterful as Scrooge and his characterisations on stage and on this disc are pure magic. AT toured the show for a number of years to full houses and this was a great role for a great character!
The music by Leslie Bricusse is atmospheric and the recording sounds brilliant. If you love musicals then this is for you...

4.0 out of 5 stars Scrooge the musical 6 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
a good DVD which tells the Scrooge story well with good actors and a great deal of energetic singing and dancing. Lovely costumes which are inspiring me with the making of costumes for our own production of this musical.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable STAGE version of "Christmas Carol" 17 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For anyone expecting the soundtrack of the film starring Albert Finney, this might be a disappointment. Yes, the same songs are used, but there is a vast difference between a work performed live on stage and one done on film. This CD presents a record of a show presented live and with a completely different cast from the film. I am lucky enough to have an LP of the film cast and will listen to that when I want to hear that version. I must admit that the best numbers are those that are common to both versions. The new numbers that expand the stage version are not as effective as the older ones. The stand outs are still the infectious "Thank You Very Much", "December the tewnty-fifth" and "I Like Life".

The first time I listened to the CD, I was not too happy with the characterization of Scrooge as presented by Anthony Newley. He was a unique talent and seemed a strange choice for this part, but in subsequent hearings, he has grown on me. I get the feeling that seeing him in person would give a completely different feeling as you could then picture him as you listen. After all, when listening to the film soundtrack, you can picture Albert Finney who was great in the film even if not a good singer.

A listener must take into consideration that a CD of a stage show may not have the same quality of voices as a film as there is no chance of dubbing another voice for an actor who can can act a part but not sing well. For the stage, the producers must pick someone who is able to perform the material live and do a complete performance -sing, act, dance without stoping once the show starts. Sometimes all the necessary qualities do not come through on a recording. I find that the whole "Scrooge" recording grows on you with each hearing.

I have copy of the full script and find that the music fits the script very well. For anyone really interested in a theatrical performance, this can be a really enjoyable experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only Availble Recording of Quality Score 11 April 2001
By R. Bigelow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First of all, after reading the previous reviews, I would like to say that only the second review (the reviewer from Buffalo) gives any true insight as to the quality of this recording. The other reviews are so inane that I can't believe any thought was put into them at all. (If you are going to quote lyrics, get them right!) Suffice it to say that the original score by Leslie Bricusse is a good reason for purchasing this recording. There isn't the lushness of the original film orchestrations and chorus work, but the presence of the digital recording makes up for it. Anthony Newley brings his usual unique style to the interpretation of Scrooge and the additional songs are interesting, if not quite up to the quality of the film songs. It is a shame that the motion picture soundtrack is no longer available. The film has become a minor holiday classic and Albert Finney's performance as Scrooge may be the best of all the versions to date. His range as an actor is astonishing and anyone who expects this material to be sung instead of acted is missing the point. Until there is a reissue of the soundtrack, this recording will be a welcome addition to anyone who appreciates a tuneful score and witty lyrics that echo the style of Charles Dickens.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is so weird 8 Jan 2003
By jerome - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
well, hmmm, what can i say, but buy this thing. Its strange i know, but i am the tiny tim on the recording, its really weird to hear your voice on the net. So this recording is a beautiful arrangement of the original film and will always bring back special memories for me. I know tony had his critics for the role of scrooge, but anyone who saw the stage version will agree with me that he was special in this role. I cant believe that this was made 11 years ago when i was 11 ish. I am now a medical student, but this experience has never left me.

2.0 out of 5 stars But we WANT the soundtrack from the MOVIE!!! 2 Dec 2006
By Cartoon Head - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The reason for all the negative reviews isn't necessarilly a reflection on the Birmingham cast. It's because the FILM was so wonderful and the songs were spectacular and memorable as done by THAT cast, and everyone is looking for a recording from THAT!!!

Unfortunately, unless you get the DVD and hook it up to make your own bootleg recording, there isn't any soundtrack from the film available.

This version isn't misleading - it clearly identifies itself as the STAGE soundtrack. But most likely, it isn't what you were looking for.

Let us all know when the Albert Finney film cast version is ready! It's long overdue for release.

3.0 out of 5 stars Newley plays Scrooge (about 20 years too late) 8 April 2003
By J. Carroll - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As much as I enjoyed Albert Finney in the movie SCROOGE, I had always imagined Anthony Newley in the role. Working with his old partner Leslie Bricusse, Newley finally got a chance to play the role in a theatrical adaptation of the movie. The only trouble is this is the Newley of the early 90's, his voice no longer up to the demands of the role. While Finney talked his way through the film's score, more is expected of Newley and he can't quite pull it off. The orchestration calls for him to reach for notes that were no longer a part of his range and this shows up throughout the recording. Despite these limitations, there is a lot to enjoy on this CD. Newley still entertains throughout and the score has a number of catchy songs ("December the Twenty Fifth," "I Like Life," "Thank You Very Much") that will leave you singing along. I'm more disappointed in what could have been, but for a true Newley fan this is something you should own.
