5.0 out of 5 stars as stated..., 13 May 2013

Wary of buying a non branded product, but at the price thought I'd take a risk. Have only used the black so far, but fits and works fine and seems to be a quality product.

In excellent condition, though they could have removed the OXFAM price lable saying 1.99 as I'd paid around 12 quid! Used this seller before and always excellent service.

Company - A Musical Comedy [2007] [DVD] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ John Doyle

3.0 out of 5 stars Try the latest concert performance..., 26 Jan 2013
I saw the original London production as a young man. Loved it but of course Donna McKechnie's great dance is only to be seen in clips on You Tube, and it was a very long time ago.I recently watched a home recorded broadcast of the London revival, and on recent viewing find it very unsatisfactory. The dialogue is very awkward and though very well acted a lot of the singing is poor. Clips of the Sheffield production look interesting. I have only seen clips of the Raul Esparza performance on You Tube, and he is wonderfully talented and charismatic. I thought it was very good... until I viewed the clips of the concert performance with the New York Philharmonic. Neil Patrick Harris sings with a more supported voice than Esparza, less breathy,and is touching and moving. You can easily believe all his friends want him. And Patti Lupone is at her very very best... her performances as she has got older have been toned down, but every phrase is shaped and pointed, bitter and funny. Please can we have it released on a Region 2 DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful voice with a throb of emotion, 3 Feb 2011
This review is from: A French Collection (MP3 Download)
I found Deborah by chance while searching for Brel some years ago, and bought all three of her albums. Her choice of songs is intelligent and a great mix of the familiar and unusual and her voice really connects. I play them all the time and still find them fresh and moving...listen to her please ! I have a huge collection of Brel, Weill, Sondheim and others by many different singers in different languages, but her songs are the ones I now listen to the most.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best so far..., 15 Dec 2010
Having read some of the other reviews I bought season 4 with trepidation. Yes it started off with a lot more nudity and sex, but the story line and the issues of perfection/imperfection are beautifully played. It's a lot more serious, sometimes a little far fetched, but stranger things do happen in life. Looking forward to Season 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars an unexpected delight...., 4 Dec 2010
I bought this having watched a few clips on You Tube, a longtime fan of the movie that I saw in, of all places, in Bombay when I was 12. Stokes Mitchell sings wonderfully, but I couldn't quite believe him as Emil De Becque. This Nearly Was Mine is a knockout. But Reba McEntire is an absolute treasure. I have never been a fan of the ping it through the nose style of country and western singing, but here it works perfectly. She really makes you believe in the character, that she is a hick falling in love with this charming older man, and her singing, against the odds with her non musical comedy voice, suits her songs and sounds lovely. The little twangs just suit the character and make her more believable. As for her acting.. her stillness, her commitment, her truthfulness, her charm... Absolutely marvellous.

4.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling addition...., 27 Oct 2006
This review is from: Sweeney Todd (Audio CD)
Unforunately old enough to have seen the original London production twice, and have loved the Broadway cast recording ever since. Have heard other recordings and broadcasts and seen many other productions but this is the first that can compete with the original. I never saw it on stage, and was expecting some scaled down budget version, but I think it works amazingly well. It is like a chamber opera, very intense and focused, and certainly on record the orchestration and voices have an intimacy that is very compelling. Cariou and Lansbury are powerful and thrilling, Cerveris and Lupone are warm and chilling at the same time, and very human. The harmonica (?) in the throat slitting version of Joanna is a perfect counterpoint to the gruesome nature of the scene, adding a pathos to the desperation of the acts being committed. I listen to this recording all the time. On a wider note isn't it interesting that the new recordings are finding subtleties and pefrmances that hindsight can bring...try the revival cast of Follies with Donna Mckechnie etc.. superbly sung and played.
