As in everything he portrays *Michael Crawford* steals the show once again. The music on this cd may sound a little strange at first (you have to get used to it). But after listening a few times you will be starving to hear more! I am so pleased that they made this cd even though the show didn't last very long. It is very emotional and takes you on a journey. Much like his other fabulous shows (EFX, POTO, Hello, Dolly!). I only wish he would do another musical or release a new cd (after his 99 Christmas album) sometime soon :)

One of my favorite Charles Strouse scores. I really just like Charles Strouse IN GENERAL - his genius is a great fixture of Broadway and has been so for over 45 years - cannot wait for his new MINSKY'S score debuting early 2009. The only thing keeping me from giving this recording 5-stars is the fact that the sound engineering is just so bad. As is the case with many OC Recordings - they were recorded on the cheap originally and will always sound as if they were recorded on the cheap!(CARMELINA being the notable exception on the OC Label!!) Too bad really - this score deserves so much better than the limited means the producer Bruce Yeko was able to provide. Yes, of course, we are all happy that Bruce Yeko made the effort to capture these scores at all rather than let them evaporate into the ether. One can still wish that things had been a bit more ideal!

This isn't one of Michael Crawford's best achievements, however, he does an excellent job playing Charlie Gordon. As in everything Crawford does, he is the show's rescuer. Some of the songs are rather clever as far as lyrics are concerned, but I think this classic story could have been handled a little better. Yet, it is definately worth having if you are a Crawford fan.

Flowers for Algernon has long been one of my favorite books, and Michael Crawford is absolutely my favorite performer. Knowing how wonderful his other pre-Phantom musicals, Billy and Barnum, were, I was eager to experience his portrayal of Charlie Gordon. Sadly, the formidable talent of Michael Crawford is wasted on this lackluster score, and his efforts can't salvage the remainder of the show. His numbers, delivered in his usual insightful, emotive and engaging style are the only noteworthy features of this recording. Overall, the show lacks dynamism and cohesiveness; it seems more like a work-in-progress than a polished production. Either some content has been cut to make it fit time constraints for this CD, or there was just not enough quality material to start with. As I understand it, neither the London nor Broadway production was well received, and both had rather short runs. Technically, this is a poor recording; the orchestra is distractingly over mixed and I found myself struggling to hear the singers and distinguish the lyrics above the volume of the instruments. I'm glad I got to hear it, but unless you're an obsessive fan who simply must hear everything Mr. Crawford has recorded -- give it a miss.
