Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat completed the transition from cantata for schoolkids to big-budget glitzfest with Steven Pimlott's 1991 London revival. Here's the 1992 Canadian version of that show, and even if it's not an ideal recording--Janet Metz as the narrator is no match for Laurie Beechman in the original Broadway cast and there's a little too much synthesizer in the orchestrations--this CD is valuable for the performance of former teen pop idol Donny Osmond as the title character. He's in excellent voice, and was so right for the role that he was selected to preserve it for the 2000 video production. And of course the songs are still here, showcasing Rice's witty lyrics and Lloyd Webber's chameleon tendencies--dabbling in country, calypso, French cafés, and a King-like pharaoh--as well as favorites "Any Dream Will Do," "Close Every Door," and "Go, Go, Go Joseph." This production also includes the "Joseph Remix" (also known as the "Joseph Megamix"), a nine-minute medley of themes arranged with a heavy beat that was used for a kind of onstage aerobics routine as the show's postscript. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Osmond shines in Canada's "Joseph" July 14, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I have to admit, I purchased the CD of this version of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" mainly out of curiosity over Donny Osmond's performance as Joseph. Well, he is superb. His voice is clear and strong, and he delivers outstanding renditions of the character's songs. The rest of the cast in this, the 1992 Canadian version of this musical play, also does a fine job.
"Joseph," with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, is a consistently entertaining CD. The lyrics re-tell the story of the biblical patriarch Joseph (found in Genesis 37-45), and Rice sticks remarkably close to the source material. "Joseph" has many inventive and humorous touches (such as making the Pharaoh sing his part a la Elvis Presley, or having Joseph's brothers break out into a calypso song).
"Joseph" works because of its combination of a compelling story, clever lyrics, and superb music. If you have heard other CD versions but have not listened to this one, check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get set for the video-- this show is a blast! June 29, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As an owner of all three "90's revival" Joseph albums (USA, UK, and CA), I'll say that this version, origionally produced in Toronto by Livent, inc. is very impressive. And Webber presumably agrees-- Donny Osmond has been chosen to star in the video version of the show (similar to last year's CATS) which supposedly is meant to be filmed this summer and released this winter. And I have to admit, Donny Osmond's performance is amazing. For instance, of the three recent albums, he's the only Joseph able to hit the high C at the end of "Close Every Door" (perhaps the show's most moving number). The quality of his performance has to be seen and/or heard to be believed. If you haven't seen any version of the show, the three 90's versions are all well executed, and each has it's own charm.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL!!! July 27, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I had looked at all of the Joseph tracks to be sure I got the right one. I didn't like the voices of certain characters on the other cd's. I LOVE this one! I had gone to see the musical just a week or two ago and loved it. You don't even really need to see the musical, the cd tells the whole story. I would recommend this CD over any of the others. Fanastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Joseph" Review -- Narrator Critic November 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I must say, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has been apart of my life for the past 10 years. My fascination with the production began when I was in grade 11. My school put on our own production of "Joseph" where I played the role of the narrator. Ever since then I have fallen in love with the show. Since that time, I have seen EVERY production that has come to Toronto (where I live) and I have heard a number of different versions of the soundtrack.
I feel that Donny Osmond's portrayal of Joseph is a definite "ten out of ten"!! He truly is amazing in that role. The Narrator (I have a special place for this role in my heart --> since I was the narrator in high school)is best played by Janet Metz, although Deborah Gibson (aka: Debbie Gibson --> 1980's teen pop star) comes VERY VERY VERY close for first place in my mind. Deborah recently played the narrator in the production of Joseph that ran from June 1999 - February 2000 that travelled to various cities in North America. Patrick Cassidy played Joseph in this tour group.
I also have the "Joseph" video. Maria Friedman does an alright job as the narrator however she could learn a thing or two from Janet Metz and Deborah Gibson. Maria does not come across as someone who truly embrasses the role as have previous narrators.
With respect to the soundtracks: Canadian Cast 1992: Very Good London Cast 1993: Good American Cast 1993: Very Good (although Michael Damian is NOT as good as Donny Osmond)
Overall, I feel that thsi performance is truly outstanding and I can't wait for the next time it returns to Toronto!!!

While Janet Metz isn't the greatest narrator for "Joseph", Donny Osmond is the perfect "Joseph." Those who saw this production will thoroughly enjoy re-living it as they listen to the songs on this CD.
From the infectious "Any Dream Will Do" to the moving "Close Every Door", and the humor behind the reggae "Benjamin Calypso" and Elvis-like Pharoah's "Song of the King" you'll find yourself singing right along.
This is fun CD to own. Do yourself a favor and order one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Cast Recording Overall April 15, 2004
By Joey E
Format:Audio CD
This is the best overall cast recording of the three revival cast recordings available. After hearing (and seeing in Toronto Canada) Donny Osmond as Joseph, you won't want to hear anyone else in that role. I have all the other recordings of this show, and this is by far the best recording. True, the orchestrations are a bit electronic sounding, but then again, this is Andrew Lloyd Webber and the orchestrations make the best of the available instrumentation. The songs are uncomplicated, the lyrics are playful and witty. Janet Metz as the narrator can be a little wearing on the ears after awhile, but I personally like her performance the best of the three revival casts. The American cast with Michael Damian in the lead is a joke. And the British revival cast recording is mixed differently so that all of the performers seem to be soft and lost within the orchestra. If you want just one cast recording of Joseph, this one is the one to get!
