Just pre-orded The Last 5 Years 2013 Off-Broadway Cast Recording along with the 2011 Premier Cast Recording of Carrie. I’m quite excited for both. And got both of them along with shipping (free) for $29. Sh-k-boom (Ghost light Records) is the way to go. Fully supporting Cast Albums and buying from their original makers.
Annie New Broadway Revival Cast Recording
It’s big brassy and bright. I’m really loving it. And the mixing is amazing. Finally a decent cast recording of the show. And it really doesn’t have any auto-tune.
I am obsessed with Katie Finneran’s belt. It’s bright, brassy, and obnoxious as hell, but at the same time amazing. I love it.
And I love the brass section. SO brassy and big. Brilliant really.
As for the kids I love that they’re practically screaming, screeching and yelling the whole score. Vocal damage. Never. They’re still young. They’ll recover fast. Fantastic.
Overall I love it.
The part I don’t like are the bonus tracks featuring Jane Lynch. I love Jane, but her voice isn’t Broadway material. Great actress though.
Make sure to check the Cast Recording out on May 28 on iTunes, or if you’re in New York go pick a copy up at the Palace Theatre.
Can we talk about the key changes at the end of ‘Stepsister’s Lament’ on the New Cinderella Cast Recording. They are brilliant. We go up once, you think we’re done but oh no. We get another one. And then at the end you get Ann Harada taking it an octave up. And Marla Mindelle just coming through everyone else in the “what’s the matter with a man?” It’s all so brilliant. I’m in love.
The orchestrations in The Little Mermaid Original Russian Cast Recording are the best I’ve heard from the show. Superb. And usually I don’t like foreign cast recordings because musical theatre is such an “American” art forum that other countries can’t create what we have here in America or the UK. I know that sounds stupid, but like most countries don’t understand or support it like America, so most people aren’t greatly trained in it and the cast recordings don’t capture what American actors and actresses bring in America. However, this recording is pretty great and I feel captures the show pretty well. Brava Russia!
For those of you who are interested in hearing this cast recording, there is no official release date of the CD in Russia or anywhere. All I know it is supposed to be released later this year… If I find anything out I’ll let you guys know.
