Editorial Reviews

The charming, old testament-inspired musical is Lloyd Webber's most performed show everywhere from elementary schools to productions by professional companies around the country (a new major national tour is even playing now!). This recording represents one of the composer's favorites, the 1991 London Palladium production starring Jason Donovan.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is Andrew Lloyd Webber's first staged musical work and his first staged collaboration with his best lyricist Tim Rice. The very first musical they wrote together, called `The likes of us', didn't reach the stage at that time and was put there for a single special performance in 2005, luckily, captured on CD and also available here at Amazon.

With `Joseph', it all began when in 1967 Lloyd Webber and his friend Rice were commissioned by the head of music at Colet Court School, London, to write a religious concert for the school choir. Joseph was first presented in 1968 and, after further performances at St Paul's Cathedral and the Roundhouse in London, and the Edinburgh Festival, opened in the West End in 1973. It wasn't much of a success, however, until Lloyd Webber bought back the rights to it in the early 90-is, reworked it and put on stage a very successful production that has been put in many other countries in the world and filmed for a special DVD.

The plot takes motives from a well known biblical Old Testament story of Joseph, the youngest son of Jacob, patriarch of Israel, and the coat of many colours that Jacob gave to Joseph as a sign that he is the special one among his sons. Joseph's older brothers became jealous and sold Joseph to be a slave in Egypt, telling their father that he's been killed by a passing goat. After being imprisoned by his equally jealous master, Joseph helps the pharaoh in solving his enigmatic dreams and becomes his first adviser who saves Egypt from the great famine. Back in Canaan, Joseph's brothers and father are starving and so the brothers go to Egypt where food is in abundance. Joseph recognizes them, but not vice versa.

There are actually 3 recorded versions of this production of Joseph, and the listener's choice basically comes down to which "Joseph" lead they like. Donny Osmond appears on the Canadian recording (and the video, made later with a different cast), soap actor Michael Damian leads the U.S. cast recording, and this present CD features British pop star Jason Donovan. All 3 discs are virtually identical in terms of instrumental tracks, and feature slight variations by individual cast members regarding vocal style, interpretation, etc. I would recommend this British cast recording as the best of the three. Jason Donovan best personifies the young handsome dreamer, with a vocal innocence and charm that the other 2 recordings do not quite deliver. Donny Osmond is an excellent singer of course, but I could not quite separate his real-life persona from the Joseph character. And Michael Damian, although he looks the part, has a breathy, smooth voice that is often overshadowed by the other cast members. In order of preference then, I would rate these as 1) Jason Donovan, 2) Donny Osmond, 3) Michael Damian. But any of the 3 are still a fun souvenir of this lighthearted musical.

A Kid's Review on January 13, 2007
Format: Audio CD
This is a great CD if you are doing this musical for your school play. I liked this CD because it had some great music and had pictures of this musical, and a packet full of lyrics to the show. The guy who's palying joseph(Jason Donovan) had a stict londen voice which sounded good but it didn't sound as good as Donny Osmand or Michael Damian. Also to me, the people singing the Joseph megamix seemed not exciting and dead compared to the other CDs of Joseph. Still, if you would like the original Londen new cast of Joseph, buy it!

Of the recordings of JOSEPH I've heard, I consider this to be the most wonderful and characterful recording of this Lord Lloyd-Webber musical. Osmond offers us all a rich portrayal of the eponymous dream-teller, filled with presence, but Donovan captures more subtleties of the character. Donovan conveys more wide-eyed and youthful innocence in his portrayal of Joseph and turns in a wonderful performance, capped by his renditions of the beguiling Any Dream Will Do and the pathos of Close Every Door. Donovan is well-partnered by Linzi Hateley as a charismatic and winning Narrator. Yes, I know you'll argue that the late-lamented Laurie Beechman virtually owns the role with her superior lung-power but Hateley engages the listener and makes the role her own. The superb line-up includes David Easter in an overripe performance of the Elvis-styled Pharaoh, and one can hear the little touches of humour he brings to his portrayal. The ensemble features a strong line-up of Brothers, and Nicolas Colicos as Reuben and Johnny Amboi as Judah make the most of their solos in One More Angel and in the Benjamin Calypso. Philip Cox gives a wonderful solo in Those Canaan Days (though Jeff Blumenkrantz is probably more memorable). To have it remastered makes it better than ever, especially with an improved libretto booklet despite some errors. Highly recommended to those who want their first recording of Joseph.

If you know the story at all, its a long but fun listen.
If you don't i suggest finding it on DVD or reading the book first.
Jason sounds wonderful, warm, intimate. his voice has qualities that while some would say don't make him the worlds most technically proficient singer. they are endearing qualities that you connect with on an emotional level and THAT is what music is.
Close Every Day, Any Dream Will do and others are lasting pieces that keep you coming back for repeated listens.
