5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent music, and lots of fun! June 17, 2012

This is the ORIGINAL CAST RECORDING, straight from the National Theatre in London. Trust me, the original is always best!

It's a lively, engaging, rousing, inventive musical mix. The styles are clever and fresh and toe-tapping good. The lyrics and themes of the songs are clever double-entendres that reflect (but do not exactly mirror) themes of the show, which makes for fun, universally themed music that's a blast to listen to.

It's hard to describe the styles. Skiffle has the raw energy and invention of, say, the early Beatles in Berlin, before they made it big. The sound is addicting, and energetic. And although skiffle is known for being the music of the street, the extreme skill and polished professionalism of these fine musicians clearly shines through. So it's the best of both worlds: like the raw energy of a street performance, but with amazing tunes, clever lyrics, and the very best musicians.

I recently saw this show in NYC with the original London cast. Brilliant. One of the funniest shows I've ever seen. And the music just adds to the comic mania of it all!

It's cause for celebration whenever a show succeeds - even more so when it succeeds so spectacularly on one side of the Atlantic that the various theatrical unions allow the personnel which created the success to repeat their jobs on the other side of "The Pond." ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS, a rewrite of Carlo Goldoni's ancient farce with a new incidental (and Tony nominated) score by Grant Olding documented delightfully on this CD was so successful that Actor's Equity made the rare gesture of allowing nearly every actor and actress in the cast in London to repeat their assignments (at least for the beginning of the show's run) on Broadway. They all appear on Track 14 ("The Finale") of this Original Cast Album of the National Theatre of Great Britian Production.

Unfortunately, Musicians' Union Local 802 was not as understanding as their sister union, and the composer and musicians which made the London score such a hit (and are marvelous on the OTHER 14 tracks on the CD) were NOT permitted to repeat their performances on this side of the Atlantic so the only album the show is likely to get will not be a Broadway Cast Album as well and customers in New York - if they can be persuaded to buy the CD will have to settle for an album performed by people (on all but one track) they did not see. If this does damage to the publicity and ticket sales for the Broadway production which in the long run could mean MORE employment for their members, 802 clearly doesn't give a damn. Given this attitude, is it any wonder a lot of Broadway audiences are NOT disturbed at the prospect of more pre-recorded orchestras in their theatres so long as the quality is kept up? 802 spends a lot of money claiming to protect the quality of the music in our theatres. They clearly don't mean it.

I'm hoping this will eventually tour. The music is sort of a cross between cockney and Elvis. I have several tunes in the Broadway mix playlist in my iPod.

Been have the luck to watch it live in Hong Kong early this year. Although not the original London Cast, but I was still laughing my head off during the performance. Surely the song "The Brighton Line" is just stuck in my head and goes on again and again...

Once again, I wish I can watch it again, SOON!!!!!
