I decided to get this CD even though I've already owned soundtrack of both "Phantom of the Opera" and "Cats". I first heard Crawford performing in "Phantom of the Opera" and I fell in love with "Music of the Night" instantly.
Four of my all-time favorites from Phantom are recorded in this CD: "All I Ask of You", "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again", "Music of the Night", and "Phantom of the Opera". "Phantom of the Opera" is the solo version by Crawford that is not released elsewhere.
My favorite picks besides the Phantom ensemble would go to "Only You" and "Memory". After listening to the platters' original version, Michael Crawford adds spice to this timeless classics. "memory" is full of sentiments.
I highly recommend this album. My hat off for michael Crawford.

This is a fantastic recording! Michael's voice is at it's best. Any Dream and Memory are beautiful. Trust me it is SO worth your money. Michael has the strongest, most entrancing vioce you'll ever hear. He really does have the voice of an angel, and this CD proves it.

I have always thought the main reason Michael Crawford did this album of Andrew Lloyd Webber songs was because it gave him a chance to sing some of the other songs from "The Phantom of the Opera." That probably explains why "All I Ask of You" and "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again" are two of my favorite tracks on this album. But my favorite is "Tell Me On A Sunday," from the little known musical "Song and Dance," a song that clearly suits Crawford's evocative voice. This album includes a wide variety of songs, from the upbeat "And the Money Kept Rolling In (And Out)" from "Evita" to the dramatic "Gethsemane" from "Jesus Christ Superstar," but clearly Crawford works best with songs that build to emotional climaxes such as "Memory" from "Cats" where his voice gets to soar above the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. If all you know of Crawford and Lloyd Webber is their successful collaboration on "Phantom," then this album will serve as a wider introduction to the work of both artists. You will especially want to hear his duet on "The Music of the Night" with Barbra Streisand.

Michael Crawford is truly amazing. I grew up in England and used to watch him every week on the telly where he starred as the bumbling Frank in the comedy series "Some mothers do 'ave 'em". He was thin, scrawny, bumbling, and a real eejit. But oh so funny. (The character, of course.) Then I moved to Canada and heard nothing more about him for years, but then I went back for a visit in the 80's, the time 'Phantom of the Opera' was becoming a big hit and I heard "The music of the night" on the radio, and my mum said it was Michael Crawford singing. Well, I just laughed and said 'Yeah, sure'. But, sure enough it was, and I have never been so flabbergasted in my life. What a complete change of direction. Who could ever have believed that such a voice could ever have been hiding inside Frank Spencer! Maybe there is still hope for Mr Bean.

This album is by far the best that Michael Crawford has released (not counting the OCR of Phantom), as he performs every one of these timeless songs absolutely flawlessly.
His Phantom work on the CD is up to its usual high-quality, though Barbara Bonney isn't Sarah Brightman. He does a jaw-dropping rendition of "Gethsemane" that is one of the most powerful I've heard. Yes, his approach to the song's rhythm is straightforward, but I prefer this more ballad-like approach. His performance of "Tell Me on a Sunday" (one of ALW's best, least-known songs) is also fantastic. And "Love Changes Everything" is well-arranged and sung (with backup vocals from the ladies and choir) and is one of the few songs that consistently gives me goosebumps.
However, all that being said, the one REAL reason to buy this album is to hear its unique arrangement of "Only You." Having heard the song previously as it was originally performed by the original cast, I considered the song to be boring and pedestrian. Whoever re-arranged the song (with new lyrics?) deserves a medal, because it transforms "Only You" into an enormously power love duet that is one of the best songs in ALW's entire canon. Overall, this album comes highly recommended, especially for those with only a passing familiarity with Crawford's or ALW's work.

Released in the U.S. in 1992, Michael Crawford's musical tribute to the phenominal British Composer who gave him the role that put him on the map is stupendous.
He kicks it off with a bouncy and fun version of "Any Dream Will Do" from "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" in which his enjoyment of singing with children really shines through.
Moving closer to familiar territory, Crawford performs "All I Ask of You", the duet Raoul and Christine sing in "The Phantom of the Opera", with Barbara Bonney, gives us a wistful rendition of Christine's solo, "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again" from the same musical, fires things up with "Evita's" "And the Money Kept Rolling in(And Out)with the Stephen Hill Singers, gives us a solemn rendering of "Nothing Like You've Ever Known", from "Tell Me on a Sunday", followed by a wrenchingly expressive version of that musical's title song.
Buttressed by the Stephen Hill Singers and The Boys Choir of Harlem, Crawford presents the darkest, most passionate number, "Gethsemene", from "Jesus Christ, Superstar", which I ritually play on Maundy Thursdays because it wholly sums up the drama of Christ's impending doom despite its use of the modern vernacular in certain areas.
The second half of this program finds Crawford rendering his signature performances, "The Phantom of the Opera" with Barbara Bonney, and his usual stunning solo on his definitive number, "The Music of the Night".
Afterwards there is the signature tune from "Cats", a version of "Memory" in which Crawford starts out gently, saving the fire for the end.
Frances Ruffelle, "Les Miserables'" original Eponine, joins Crawford in a sensuous peformance of "Only You" from "Starlight Express".
