I bought this CD as I wanted to hear it again after all these years. Jason Donovan is excellent as Joseph, and David Easter (Pete Callahan in Family Affairs) is superb as the Elvis-style Pharoah! It is a great sing along CD, and will be especially enjoyable if you saw the original West End production starring Jason Donovan at the London Palladium in the early 1990s. The lyrics (all provided in the inlay) are really cheesy but it is just great fun to listen to. I think Joseph was one of the best Lloyd-Webber/Rice musicals, and have listened to my CD countless times without getting sick of it. Listen to the clips on Amazon too! They are not very good quality but give you a good idea of how the songs sound if you have forgotten.

I have heard no less than FIVE official English JOSEPH cast recordings, and I feel compelled to say that this version with Jason Donovan in the eponymous title character is the best of all I've heard. Jason Donovan brings a level of emotion into his portrayal that seems to be missing from Donny Osmond's (a little) and Michael Damian's (a lot) portrayals. He really understands the essence of his songs, and he never fails to incorporate this into his glossy polished performance. The fact that he performs the role with a sense of being naive gives him an edge over his contendors. Linzi Hateley's portrayal of the Narrator is, like Kelli Rabke's and Janet Metz of the American revival soundtracks, and Laurie Beechman's of the first professional American version, a real treat for the ears. The things that she shares with them is her charisma, immediate presence and love for telling the story. Her voice is lively and energetic, and her performance is enough to count her as another defining highlight, like Donovan. Perhaps the most impressive part of this performance is David Easter's portrayal of the Elviessque Pharaoh. Not only does he give an authentic Elvis accent, but he really makes the part his own and includes a few touches of humour into his "Seven Fat Cows" song, turning it into the most ticklish number on this CD. The brothers, though they are more human on this recording than others, deliver powerful choral backings and make the most of their songs. Nicolas Colicos's "One More Angel," Philip Cox's "Canaan Days" and Johnny Amobi's "Benjamin Calypso" all resonate for an extremely long time in the memory. Johnny Amobi's "Calypso,", I should say, is the best rendition of all those I've heard.Read more ›

I first purchased this album as a cassette at the time Jason Donovan was starring in the West End. I have been desperately trying to purchase it on CD since my cassette broke! It is an excellent version of this well know Lloyd-Webber musical. Listening to it, you could almost be in the theatre. Highly recommended.

Joseph and the amazing Technicolor dreamcoat was Andrew Lloyd Webber's first all musical work and his first collaboration with his best lyricist Tim Rice. It all began when in 1967 Lloyd Webber and his friend Rice were commissioned by the head of music at Colet Court School, London, to write a religious concert for the school choir. Joseph was first presented in 1968 and, after further performances at St Paul's Cathedral and the Roundhouse in London, and the Edinburgh Festival, opened in the West End in 1973. It wasn't much of a success, however, until Webber bought the rights to it in the early 90-is, reworked it and put it on stage a very successful production that is still running and has been put in many other countries in the world and filmed for a special DVD.

The plot uses motives from a well known biblical story of Joseph, the youngest son of Jacob, patriarch of Israel, and the coat of many colors that Jacob gave to Joseph as a sign that he is the special one among his sons. Joseph's older brothers became jealous and sold Joseph to be a slave in Egypt, telling their father that he's been killed by a passing goat. After being imprisoned by his equally jealous master, Joseph helps the pharaoh in solving his enigmatic dreams and becomes his first adviser who saves Egypt from the great famine. Back in Canaan, Joseph's brothers and father are starving and so the brothers go to Egypt where food is in abundance. Joseph recognizes them, but not vice versa. After he learns them a lesson because of their past behavior, Joseph is reunited with his brothers and father in Egypt.

This show is mostly aimed at kids, but can be viewed and heard by people of all ages. The songs are mostly pop and a merry note can be found in most of them.

What a fantastic CD! I have never seen the show and was introduced to this when I was little. It is amazing how music like this really sticks to you and wont let you go!
My favourite tunes have to be Pharoahs "Elvis" type song, with some great lyrics also coming from Potifars song. When you listen to the lyrics, its incredible how much is squished into the song.
The variations of the songs are incredible, and I say to anyone considering it.........buy buy BUY!!!!!!!!!!
