Look closely - This is NOT the 2011 revival recording!
on May 31, 2011
Just a comment, and I don't want to give a low rating to Patti's (et al.) fabulous recording... which I already own. Do not be misled, as I was, by the "2011" date on this CD -- this is NOT the recent revival with Sutton Foster. I could have sworn her name was listed on the description page when I pre-ordered this, but I may have been mistaken. At the time I placed my order, there were no audio samples or descriptions from the publisher.
Considering you can still buy the 1988 CD (for a few bucks cheaper), I'm not sure what Sony was thinking with this re-release, especially as it comes in a cardboard wallet rather than a plastic jewel case. It's the exact same tracks from that version, only with a 2011 copyright date. It also doesn't help that this CD is the first result when searching for "anything goes 2011" or "anything goes sutton foster" on Amazon. Very confusing.
After a bit of googling, I discovered that the real 2011 revival recording was just announced last week, so hopefully it will be available later this year.
