Take no heed of anyone who calls any of this performance "stiff". I attended Cats in the preview week, back in 1981 and never since have I been so carried away by anything. This is a CD of fantastic music; a must for every dance, music, cat and poetry lover out there. I will not have this likened to the Broadway re-write. In my opinion CATS should have been left as it is, Despite some very "English" humour, especially the subtlety of Rum, Tum Tugger and the history of Victorian variety theatre conjured up by Gus. Everything Mistofflees of Singapore objected to, are what makes this the only CD of CATS that I would ever listen to. Buy it!
