Great show but disappointing production values on the CD
on 3 January 2018
The show was great in London and the DVD recording is good but I was disappointed with the CD. To start with it only totals 65 mins, so easily fits on one CD. Spreading it across two CD's of half an hour each is a joke, just to make it seem like you are getting more for your money. The editing is really harsh and amateur. After each song the applause is abruptly is faded out to zero in space of a couple of seconds, then the next track starts, it sounds terrible. Every other live cast recording manages to properly cross fade between the applause and the start of the next track, anyone can do a better job than this on their laptop with basic music programs. It is like they have just taken the sound track from the DVD and done a quick hatchet job on it and bunged the CD out. It would have been nice if they can included some of the dialogue from the introduction/linking scenes as well, there was plenty of space on the CD's after all. It doesn't do the show justice, and the price everywhere is still high at the time of writing. You are better off buying the DVD with your money.
