4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent stereo sound, fine orchestrations, fine performanc, July 29, 1998
This review is from: Carousel: Music Theater Of Lincoln Center (1965 New York Revival) (Audio CD)
This 20th anniversary production of the R&H classic was the first original cast recording since the initial production. Raitt may reach for breath in some of his numbers but his acting is far better than in the original production. Susan Watson is a vivacious Carrie in MR. SNOW and Eileen Christy is an acceptable Julie. This is the first complete recording of the IF I LOVED YOU scene (an operatic mono studio cast recording of the mid-fifties is "nearly" complete). The JUNE number contains the first recording of the "Tell it to em good, Carrie" intro. Here also is the first recording of the reprise of MR SNOW. BLOW HIGH is abridged as is the CAROUSEL WALTZ (5:29 minutes of the 7:15 whole). Jerry Orbach is only adequate as Jigger. WHEN THE CHILDREN ARE ASLEEP is fine, but also abridged. First recording of some of the dialogue from this scene. The SOLILOQUY is very well done, though lacking some lung power. A REAL NICE CLAMBAKE gets an expanded rendition. WHAT'S THE USE OF WONDRIN lacks introspection in Christy's interpretation. Hilgenberg sings wonderfully as Nettie in YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE. THE HIGHEST JUDGE is as in the original very powerfully sung by Raitt. STONECUTTERS CUT IT ON STONE is eliminated in this recording. All in all, this is a fine recording, well sung, orchestrated and recorded and worthy of inclusion in one's library next to the 1945 original cast recording. Liner notes disagree with the jewel case in timing the recording at either 50:53 or 47:08.
