Tons of stuff has already been recommended; some of it I've heard, some of it not... all I can do is add some of "my favorite things"... (yeah, bad pun...)
- Mame, w/Angela Lansbury. Especially the remaster with some of Jerry Herman's demos. "Camoflage" is such a fun number!
- Jesus Christ Superstar, 1971 (NOT the movie)
- Chess, early 1980's. Okay, it didn't make it to Broadway for a while... I prefer the original recording with Murray Head
- The Pirates of Penzance - the version with Kevin Kline and Linda Ronstadt. I readily admit to bias on this one... the movie version came out not long before we did this one during my senior year of high school.
I don't have many DVD's. "Cats" is good and makes more sense when you see the whole thing. I recently saw "Memphis" on PBS (which is supposedly out on DVD) and although I liked it on TV, I wasn't as enthusiastic about just listening to it on CD.
Have fun exploring and finding new treasures!
