For me this collection is at it's best when it features the "Divas" who also stared in the Broadway productions that these songs came from. Betty Buckley with Memory, Patti Lu Pone with Buenos Aires, and Yvonne Ellerman with I Don't Know How To Love Him, all feature the "Divas" who would actually sing these songs to a live audience night after night.
Yvonne Ellerman deserves a special note here, as she is best known for her Disco hit, If I Can't Have You, yet Broadway is where she got her start with her role as Mary Magdeline in Jesus Christ Superstar.
Pop and Cabaret "Divas" provide their take on these Broadway gems with
All I Ask of You, As If We Never Said Goodbye, and Another Suitcase From Hell, being the best.
An interesting track is The Heart Is Slow To Learn, this is from the Phantom Sequel that as of yet has not made it to the stage (Broadway, or otherwise).
For this reviewer my all time favorite Broadway song is Don't Cry For me Argentina, and why Madonna's read was chosen is beyond me. This timeless song has been recorded by such great vocalists as Karen Carpenter, Donna Summer,and others, not to mention Patti LuPone. This song deserved better representation on this collection.
All in all, this was an excellent CD, and I suggest that if you know anyone who loves Andrew Lloyd Webber (or simply musicals in general) that you get this for THEIR birthday.

Some of the singers, were a chore to listen to. Kiri te Kanawa's singing 'why is love cruel' is beautiful, but poorly recorded. CD is a disappointment.Published 11 months ago by Sam Spade
