5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding 'classic' recording, 16 May 2005
This review is from: West Side Story Original Soundtrack Recording (Audio CD)
So much has been said about West Side Story, which is universally regarded as one of the best recordings ever made, that it needs little in the way criticism. Suffice to say that there are a number of releases of the original soundtrack - of which this is clearly (pun intended) the best. The 2004 20-bit remastered and extended version is a failure and best avoided, with the energy, presence and detail of the original transfer sucked out of it.
An all-time classic, still technically outstanding after more than 40 years, and a reference point in the history of recording technique.
