A razor sharp recording but a few cuts
on 2 April 2012
This is a brilliant recording first and foremost. The characters shine through and there really is a fantastic sense of the production. But why oh why did they take the razor to the score and cut out some of the songs? This prouction deserved a double disc. What you get is the 'story' basically told on a single disc which is OK for those who simply want to relive the memories of the production itself, but for those who are keen musical fans a double disc would have been more satisfying than a Lovett meat pie. Buy it. It's worth it. But be prepared for wanting more- we get the meat but not the gravy.
