5.0 out of 5 stars cool for catz!, 30 Nov. 1999
This review is from: Cats (Original London Cast Recording) (Audio CD)
The only thing I don't like about this cd is that I bought it in a record shop for a higher price than the one offered here. The songs are funky and guaranteed to cheer you up (except perhaps "Grizabella the glamour cat" and "Memory".) This is a must for anyone who loves cats or music (even better if you are nuts about both). If you haven't seen the show, see it. Then buy the video version and the book by T.S.Eliot, "Old Possum's book of Practical Cats" - not an advert for amazon, this is required reading for your full appreciation of this masterpiece. When you have worn them both out listen to the cd once more and then go and see the show again - if you're not sick of it all by then, you'll be hooked forever - just like me. Some people may analyse the different musical genres used by A.Lloyd-Webber, but I am young, uneducated in the history of music and just enjoy what I hear, so don't worry if you're the same - enjoyment doesn't always come from understanding! This cd is especially good as it has all the songs that were originally written and performed, whereas this isn't always the case with the stage productions nowadays as the show has been running for so long. Having so many famous names on the cd is a bonus as, famous or not, all the singers bring warmth and personality to the cats they are playing. But don't take my word for it - find out for yourself!
