Very good cast album
A Very Good Recording Cast but Michael Damian ruins it . . .
(3 out of 5 stars)
"I've watched the video (outstanding!) and I've listened to the Canadian cast recording (excellent!) and now I've heard the L.A. cast recording and when I first started listening to it, Kelli Rabke just blew me away with her excellent and powerful voice as the narrator. WOW!...I was thinking, this is going to be an excellent CD. THen, Michael Damian started singing and my ears almost started hurting from his terrible recording on Joseph's Part. Don't get me wrong, I've never seen him perform on stage (maybe he's a good actor!) but his voice is just terrible. He has the ability to sing the part but it just sounds fake and emotionless. It sounds more like sustained talking rather than singing and it just ruined the whole thing for me. I was rather dissappointed because Kelli Rabke does an awesome job, Robert Torti is perfect as Pharoah and all the other voices are excellent (even the Butler & Baker!) but whenever Michael Damian sings it makes me almost cover my ears and it distracts from the rest of the cast. Donny Osmond is the best Joseph in my opinion. If only there was only a recording with Donny Osmond as Joseph & Kelli Rabke as the Narrator then there would be the perfect recording. I only recommend this recording if you like the powerful Narrator part of the musical. If you rather have the stronger Joseph vocals then buy the CANADIAN CAST RECORDING. But if you want a combination of "the Perfect cast" then just buy the video tape or DVD version where Maria Friedman as the narrator also does an oustanding job and Donny Osmond shows his strong vocals and much emotion in his acting interpritation as Joseph."

"I was very familiar with this CD when I bought it - I had actually been in several productions of "Joseph" before. So I was surprised to find how interesting and different it was from our version. I thought the singers were phenomenal and the Narrator, especially, was absolutely fabulous. Everyone in the cast had perfect diction and each song had its own personality. I recommend this CD very highly."
