2010 marks Stephen Sondheim's 80th birthday, so what could be a better time to be looking back on one of his greatest and most personal musicals. COMPANY is a "concept musical" in the best sense of the word, where the songs act more as vignettes than form a scene-to-scene story. The cast, headed by Dean Jones and Elaine Stritch, has never been truly bettered.

Dean Jones, in his brief time as Bobby, displayed for the first time his rich and soulful singing voice. After years playing the goofy leads in Disney comedies like "The Love Bug", "Monkeys Go Home" and "That Darn Cat", Jones established himself as a bright new Broadway star to be reckoned with. His renditions of "Someone is Waiting" as well as the life-affirming "Being Alive" are fantastic. Dealing with a painful divorce and unable to commit himself for a long stay in New York, Jones was replaced, very early into the show's run by Larry Kert (Kert's recording of "Being Alive" is included as a bonus track).

The supporting cast is headed by Elaine Stritch as Joanne, the sardonic older woman who sings the masterful "Ladies who Lunch" (still yet to be equalled). Beth Howland, as kooky Amy, tackles the difficult patter-song "Getting Married Today" with jaw-dropping gusto. Pamela Myers, in her Tony-nominated role as Marta, sings a mean rendition of "Another Hundred People". The rest of the cast (Barbara Barrie, Charles Kimbrough, Merle Louise, Charles Cunningham, Teri Ralston, George Coe, Steve Elmore, Charles Braswell, Donna McKechnie, Susan Browning, Cathy Corkill, Carol Gelfand, Marilyn Saunders and Dona D. Vaughn) all hold their own.

There have been revivals of "Company" and recordings of those revivals but nothing comes close to the original. This is the absolute best!!! To say that "Company" was a landmark musical is no exageration. When it opened in NY in the very early 70's it was a total original. There had never been anything quite like it. Buy this one, not the versions that followed.

I saw the original production of "Company" on my first trip to New York in the spring of 1980. By then, Larry Kert had replaced Dean Jones, but I saw the rest of the original cast, including the incomparable Elaine Stritch. Everybody has their own opinion about who does the best version of key songs, so I'll weigh in and say that Stritch brings a raw pain to "Ladies" that no one else has. I like Raul Esparza's version of "Being Alive," but Dean Jones' version has stuck in my head ever since I came home and ran out to buy the original cast recording. It is one of the most moving renditions I've ever heard.

In some ways "Company" has aged, which is evident in the recent version made with Neil Patrick Harris. Most of of Marta's speech ("How many Puerto Ricans do you know? How many Jews?" etc.) has been cut, losing most of its humor, and some of the vignettes with the married couples seem dated. Still, there is so much fun and verve in numbers like "You Could Drive a Person Crazy" and Beth H's. rendition of "Getting Married Today."

I am very pleased to have the original in my hands again (I lost the original LP in a move), along with the bonus of Larry Kert's version of "Being Alive."

...These people really want to escape that world when they go to the theater, and then here we are with COMPANY talking about how we're going to bring it right back in their faces." So said Stephen Sondheim about his breakthrough 1970 musical COMPANY, though in the intervening fortysome years this innovative show that dispensed with the usual boy-gets-girl book and was derided by some critics as "caustic" has become much less of a menace and much more of a classic, and its concern with the necessity of marriage and side themes of big-city alienation and interpersonal relationships were treated often in future plays.

Here's a chance to hear the songs as Sondheim and company wished them to be heard, in an original cast recording that caught actor/singer Dean Jones in the central role of "Bobby," shortly before he left the show and was replaced by Larry Kert. Such songs as "Another Hundred People" (sung by Pamela Myers), the slightly dissonant post-coital duet "Barcelona," Beth Howland's frenetic "Getting Married Today," Elaine Stritch's impishly waspish "The Little Things You Do Together" and of course her landmark "Ladies Who Lunch" are all here, among others. A bonus final track gives us Larry Kert's take on "Being Alive," should you wish to compare his version to Dean Jones's. COMPANY was an early album to be recorded in digital process; thus it bears the DDD Spars code and sounds great.

Related material: There's a DVD about the recording itself but it is bitterly expensive.
