This CD is yer standard no-expense-spent Pickwick Hallmark offering. You won't find any sleeve notes here detailing the back story to this phenomenal creative and commercial smash, or how revolutionary it was to the stage musical in a similar way that its theatrical contemporary 'Beyond The Fringe' was to comedy. Nope, what you get is the song titles, a credit for the composers, and, er, that's it.

As for the sound quality, it's pretty good considering these recordings are not taken from the original master tape source. The CD is a direct transfer from a vinyl record; this is blatantly apparent when, during the quieter musical moments, one can hear the stylus grinding through the groove. Worse is when the sound occasionally distorts at the loudest musical peaks.

Despite the budgetary restraints in its audio and textual representation, this album is great. The songs - despite being over 50 years old - are still vibrant, powerful, emotive (without resorting to mawkish, cloying sentimentality) and witty (both musically and lyrically).

Anna Quayle - whom I only knew from her comically haughty, deeply eccentric appearances in films such as 'Smashing Time', Casino Royale' and 'A Hard Day's Night' - is a revelation as a singer, imbuing her numbers with a sharp comic sensibility and a serious vulnerability.

But, of course, it's Anthony Newley's show. You either love his idiosyncratic, highly individual singing style or you hate it. There's no in-between. His influence on David Bowie is well-known but, hearing Newley here, in full flow, one understands what a vital and liberating force he has been for successive generations of British pop singers in his refusal to 'Americanize' his voice or to temper his excesses.

STWIWTGO was a brilliant show and this is a fine recording, though inevitably somewhat dated now in the Mumbo Jumbo number.

However please forgive a bit of pedantry, viz the use of the word "Soundtrack". Films have soundtracks, shows don't. This was a studio recording. There was a film of the show, starring Tony Tanner and Millicent Martin, but as far as I know its soundtrack was never released commercially.
