4.0 out of 5 stars Great, if only they had all the songs.... April 10, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Australian cast of the Rocky Horror Show kicked arse, I LOVED their version of Rose Tint My World, it was even better than the original Roxy cast or the movie!! And Reg Levermore's Sweet Transvestite was to die for! I just wish they had the full score for the show, I would love to see what they did with Science Fiction Double Feature, Superheroes, Toucha Toucha Touch Me (especially with the MARVELOUS Janet they had), and Charles Atlas Song (along with a lot of other RHS songs, but this isn't a review to test my Rocky knowledge, now is it?). What I liked the most is that with a lot of musicals I've noticed if I get a cast recording from the 70s, the actors seem a little more inhibited than in a revival cast. But with this one, they just said "to heck with that" and did the songs in their raunchy entirety, which is what you gotta do with Rocky Horror! I honestly thought at first the cast was from the 90s or something. Despite its song lackage, this is definitely an asset to anyone's Rocky Horror collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Australian Cast Brings Live Show to Life October 28, 2000
By Judy H.
Format:Audio CD
The Australian Cast really breathes life into the Rocky Horror Show! Listening to it makes you remember what it is like to be at the live show. This recording sounds gritty and real. The members of the Australian cast could take on the cast of any other live album with one hand tied behind their backs (especially the Magenta)! If you love live music and The Rocky Horror Show, the Australian Cast version of The Rocky Horror Show is the one for you!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not actually the "original" cast September 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Just a quick note to point out that this is not the *original* Australian cast album. The original Australian cast (1974) featured Reg Livermore, Kate Fitzpatrick, Arthur Dignam, John Paramor, Jane Harders and others I can't remember.

I saw both casts in the original run and can testify that they're both fantastic. But i guess because he's the first one I heard (and I must have worn out the album), Reg Livermore's Frank'n'Furter has always been "the one".

4.0 out of 5 stars A Necessary Addition to Your RHS Collection December 14, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I rated this recording a four only because of the scarcity of songs. Daniel Abineri is absolutly sensational as Frank-N-Furter. The best since TC. The other performers are great as well. This CD is well worth the price.
