Anyone who wants to hear the original cast will love this cd. George Rose as the Chairman, Howard McGillan as John Jasper, Cleo Lane as Puffer and of course the incomparable Betty Buckley as Edwin Drood make this a must have for any Broadway collectors collection.

First, let me say that this is one of my all time favorite shows on broadway. I saw this as a young man. Went to NY, stood in line at TKTS and got a 5th row end seat to this original production. I loved this show so much that I bought the cd as soon as it came out even though it was missing a few songs. Well, flash forward about twenty years or so and my original cd had acquired a few scratches and bruises that come with age. The cd won't play correctly so I came to amazon and purchased the 2012 cd thinking it would be more complete because I had already looked at the mp3 album. Well, I looked at the back of the cd and, to my surprise, this cd appears to be missing all of the Out on a Limerick portion of the show as well as A Word Your Chairman. Can anyone else verify the re-release of the cd is missing these songs? If so, how did amazon get the complete album? If I had known this cd would be incomplete I would have purchased the mp3 album.

This is one of my favorite musicals and very well done. I was very pleased to find this because it isn't done all that often and Rupert Holmes is a genius when it comes to music (among other things). I'm a huge fan!

First, no, this is not the cast recording from the 2012 revival of the show.

There is no more interesting and fun moment in musical theater then the moment in Act II when the show grinds to a halt and the cast of this Victorian show-within-a-show announce that Dickens died before he could finish the story and write a solution to the mystery (true), so the audience will have to vote on how the show ends.

But this original soundtrack from the original production has been out of print and impossible to find for ages. It's an awesome score that has been fiddled with continuously since the show first hit theaters, but well worth your time. Rollicking Victorian art song tradition meets broadway meets pop song sensibility. How something this grand and great came out of the same guy who brought us the Pina Colada Song I do not know, but I don't need to.

"There You Are" and "Don't Quit While You're Ahead" are a rollicking good time, and the recording includes most of the possible endings. It's so great to have this soundtrack available again. I only hope that the new production runs for years and they get a recording of their own soon.
