"Forget all but the Original Cast Recording. Everything about this Digital Recording blows every other recording of this musical out of the water. I've heard them all (including the new Kristin Chenowith/Matthew Broderick version) and this beats them all. Reading all the reviews of every version of this available here on Amazon.com, I am honestly shocked more people don't know about this incredible version. The cast is by far the best, the chorus is full and on target, and the orchestra is right off the bandstand--and wonderfully recorded. GET THIS NOW!"
Craig Bierko this isn't!

"The other reviews are of a different recording - that of the recent Broadway revival with Craig Bierko and Rebecca Luker.
This is a studio recording starring baritone Timothy Noble. The performance tries hard and includes probably more music than most recordings (including "Being in Love" from the film). The main problem seems to be with the tempo. All the songs could be performed twice as fast as the are. While orchestral details might be missing at that speed, the score would get an injection of energy which is what makes this musical work.
