A well reconstructed rendition of a classic,
This review is from: Anything Goes (1988 Studio Cast) - Cole Porter (Audio CD)
Cole Porter's brilliantly witty show, written to raise the spirits of depression-enfolded America, is a wonderful treat. After two reworkings, the stage version of Anything Goes presented today is different from the original, but this modern recording (aided by one of the original orchestrators) brings back the magical work that inspired the audiences of the 1930s. Talented voices that compliment the orchestra well, good articles and an interview in the CD booklet, as well as Cole Porter's brilliant music make this an essential for the Anything Goes fan.

some of the musical numbers with the cast sound as if the cast members were in the orchestra instead of being recorded in front of the orchestra. Also, no notes came with this package. Was there a booklet issued with the original Angel recording?? I am familar only with von Stade so don't know who the others are. I also don't know the story, never having seen the play nor the movie.
