3.0 out of 5 stars The worst Eponine!, February 7, 2004
This and all the other recordings are good. If "On My Own" and all other songs sung by the character Eponine are among your favorites, however, skip this (and the 1985 version) and get either the complete symphonic version or the tenth anniversary concert recording -- Kaho Shimada's 'sad' and Lea Salonga's 'dejected' interpretations (and their GREATgreat voices) are MUCH, MUCH better than shrieky Frances Ruffele's.

3.0 out of 5 stars The least desirable of all Les Mis recordings!, February 7, 2004
All the Les Miserables recordings are good, so as many have done, get as many versions as you can. Be warned, however, that after you've heard the complete version and the concert recording, you'll be disappointed with some of the cast in this version. I was especially disappointed with the actress who played Eponine - her voice was annoyingly squeeky and whiny; she ruined my favorite song "On My Own," which I first heard sung perfectly by Miss Saigon star Lea Salonga.
