Pure Brillinace :-)
on 1 January 2015
I’ve been a huge musical fan since my early days, and love the period of the big musicals, from the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. I also love the musicals of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber.
I have the original London cast recording of “The Phantom of the Opera” on cassette that was released in 1987, it starred starring Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford.:-)
I was really hoping that they make it into a film as it was such a fantastic musical, so when they announced it was to be a film I was over the moon.:-)
Not only has this musical got a fantastic story it also has an excellent score by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Charles Hart and the additional lyrics are by Richard Stilgoe.:-)
The main characters were played by Emma Rossum (Christine) and Gerard Butler (Phantom), they both did a fantastic job with singing the songs. :-)
This CD contains all the songs from the film and in total there are 14 tracks.
With this CD you get a lovely little booklet that includes the track listing, the cast list, two short articles and some still photos from the film. :-)
If you were to ask me if I’d any favourites I’d had to say yes, it’s the entire CD. :-)
I love listening to this CD, besides the great songs it reminds me of the fantastic film.
It’s a must if you’re a fan of the film and the musical. :-)
It’s a fantastic CD and I’m really pleased it’s in my musical collection. :-)
