I have listened to many versions of this show over the years and this is by far the best recording of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Weber's work. Julie Covington is sublime as Eva Peron. She is able to convey the emotion of what she is singing and you will hear songs on this recordng which are not on any other. Eva's sonnet is a beautiful example of this and also the Lament which should never have been shortened. I recently listended again to the Elena Rogers version and that recording does not do justice in anyway to the performers of the show or the musical. Evita needs to be listened to in its entirety to really appreciate it and the highlight versions just appear confusing and disjointed. If you wish to buy just one recording of the show this is the one to get.
