4.0 out of 5 stars How true the title. They don't write shows like this anymore.
With stars such as Yootha Joyce and Barbara Windsor and Lionel Bart's words and music, this original cast recording is a must for any lover of musicals!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great nostalgia, shame about the crackles!, 29 July 2013

Came across "Fings" many years ago when I was asked to sing a selection of the music for a concert. Loved the humour of it, being a child of time, but could never find a recording of it, so I was delighted to find this.
The recording quality is very poor - about par for the course at the time as it would have been done with an open mike on a reel to reel (or just possibly cassette) tape and it wouldn't have been great to start with by modern standards. The enthusiasm of audience and performers and the atmosphere they create outweighs this, however, and anyone who knows this show will certainly appreciate hearing it in the original version.
...and if you don't know the show, give it a whirl. My particular favourite is 'The Ceiling's Coming Down' which typifies the apathetic attitude engendered by life for those who had little in their favour in the '60s. Dry, dark humour at its best.

2.0 out of 5 stars It was different, and of poor sound quality., 30 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought that the plot would be similar to the Max Bygraves song. Instead, it was about London low life[very!].Because of the poor sound quality alone I should have sent it back.
