Having grown up with the definitive 1957 original cast recording with the magical Robert Preston and exquisite Barbara Cook, I must confess a distinct bias. Though not as good as the original or it's subsequent 1962 film version with Preston and Shirley Jones, it is, however much better than the most recent broadway revival and highly disappointing 2003 tv version with the horribly miscast Matthew Broderick. Preston and Cook are a hard pair to top! With slightly different orchestrations by broadway veterans Don Walker and Laurence Rosenthal, the recording does have appeal. The Brits often fail at mastering the American dialects, but this is a minor flaw. I have never been a particular fan of the sarcastic Van Johnson, and in the role of Harold Hill, he lacks Preston's masterful charm and delivery. His attack is muddy and falls woefully short. Patricia Lambert, however, fares much better in the role of Marian. She doesn't match Cook's crystal delivery, but she is more than ably suited to the role. It is good to finally have this London version on cd, if only to compare and contrast.
