4.0 out of 5 stars It is all here just a little harsher, 23 Feb. 2005
By 
This review is from: Cabaret (Audio CD)
I realy do not like comparing this version with the two earlier recorded versions and or the many live shows that made it under the radar like the one at Casa Manyana in Fort Worth, Texas. But except for first time buyers the comparison may be important. Every one will have a favorite. The first is usually the standard by which the others are measured. And for those that grew up with Lisa Minnelli it is hard to imagine another Sally until this version was made. Some call this more real and dramatic not thinking that so were the others for their time. Even the son mix changes with the version.
The most striking difference is with the song "Tomorrow Belongs to Me". The original Broadway version was cut down but has a great impact as the waiters joined in. The movie was even more dramatic as not only did it start out with one lad (a great solo by the way) then the tempo builds up as others join in to give an ominous feel. This version loses much of the original charm and threat. However its harshness fits perfectly into the balance of the play. So I must say that as stand alone music this is not my favorite.
The pamphlet that comes with the CD is 18 pages of pictures from the play. There is a cast list and a list of Musical numbers. The lyric to the songs are in order of play. This helps with the German parts.
