A wonderful recording and great to have a recording of `Sand in my eyes' and `We don't understand our children'.
I am about to buy another copy for a friend!

I bought this CD at the request of my husband who had seen the original show. He enjoyed it but I'm not so sure!

Very good but I should have gone for the later version.

I have owned the Original Cast recording LP of this show for many years, but *exclusive to this particular CD version* is over 30 minutes of bonus material from Act Two, recorded 'live' in 1956 during the West End run - a unique and fascinating
historical document, released to the public for the first time! The 1956 theatre audience clearly were having a great time, and enjoying every minute, something you cannot appreciate from the studio recording, and helps to explain which the show ran for so long - indeed one of the most successful British musicals of all time. The 'live' tapes have been remastered, and sound surprisingly good, and the comment from the actor who had the foresight to record it (in his rather spooky voice....)at the end is great : 'How happy we all were then'. Yes indeed!

A good transfer from the original cast recording which was of course a very early LP. The songs recorded live from the second act add atmosphere and some numbers which were omitted from the original record.The recording quality of these leaves quite a lot to be desired but these may be the only takes of some of these songs

I first heard Salad Days when I was a teen and to hear the song again by the same voices was a delight.
