Perfectly fine British cast recording of the classic show.

"This is a perfectly fine recording of the 1986 British revival presented at the Chichester Festival Theatre. Suzie Quatro can't hit the high notes and can get a little raw at times but she acts the part well. Eric Flynn is a bit long in the tooth for Frank Butler but vocally he's fine. There are 18 tracks including the later interpolated OLD FASHIONED WEDDING. The two soubrette songs are eliminated. At 56:06 this is a nearly complete rendering and is recorded as are all the Chichester shows as if you are front row center with a typical pit orchestra. It stands with most recordings of the work and is a fine choice if you don't care for Merman or Hutton or Martin."
Excellent soundtrack with great vocals

"I highly recommend this cd soundtrack if West End musicals are your thing. Suzi Quatro gives a fine performance in her portrail of Annie Oakley. Suzi shows her versatility, thus being her first stage role after being asked by Andrew Lloyd Webber, to play the part of Annie Oakley. Suzi gives a superb performance as well as reaching some of the high notes that the performance requires. Suzi delivers the role paying total resemblance to the spirit of Annie Oakley character... Thanks Suzi Quatro for delivering a fine performance of this well loved character one that Dorothy Hutton would enjoy. It would be great to see this released on DVD in the near future..."
