The London CD has the blue background but the Broadway one has a black background :lol:


Hate to revive this, but when I was in NY, I asked someone what's with the blue background on the BATB OBCR and he said that it was just for the 10th Anniversary. :|

WRONG, there *IS* an Original London Cast recording, I have it, it's far superior to the Broadway version, has better orchestration, but bizzarely seems to have the same Gaston!

Here, buy it!

I too would love to have a Broadway recording of the show. I have the London cast which is good but still miss hearing the moments of the show that they added to the Broadway cast. It was a truely amazing show and my first musical to see on Broadway. It was a great beginning on my first time to NYC. Hears hoping for a Broadway CD release!

I'm confused now.

When I saw the show on tour, I saw a blue CD that said it was the OLC, then the woman gave me the CD but it had a black background not blue, it says OBC.

And from TR_Wolf's link, it backs me up.

My BATB OBC is blue. I don't know why, but it is. I hope this is what we're discussing here.

And I want an OBC of Mary Poppins, too. I enjoy Ashley Brown's singing, personally.

TOTALLY wrong. There is an OLCR too. It's a thousand times better than the OBCR too.


I was only PARTLY wrong. There is an Origianl Broadway Cast Recording and a Movie Soundtrack. Since there is appearently an Original London Cast Recording, that would mean I just missed one of the three out there. I was 2/3 correct, 1/3 wrong, making me PARTLY, not even MOSTLY, wrong.

:lol:


Wrong again! There's even an australian cast recording with Hugh Jackman as Gaston. I believe I even saw a German Cast Recording before. Who knows how many cast recordings of B&TB are out there...

Ashley Brown has a wonderful voice. But I think they will wait untill there is a 2nd Bert (has Gavin left?) like they are doing with Wicked, they waited untill Idina left.

I must say that I personally prefer the OBC recording. There is nothing wrong with the orchestrations and I prefer the cast too. In comparison with the OBC, the OLC generally just seems so tired, lacking in vocal energy. I think it's a pretty lacklustre recording and I don't find it all that compelling to listen to.

Later days

A friend of mine is in Mary Poppins on Broadway, and I asked him if they were going to do an OBCR, mainly b/c I wanted to buy that one since he would be on that CD! We talked about this before the Tony's, and he told me that there was talk about it, but in order for it to happen, they would have to pull in some big Tony wins.

So, since that didn't happen (I believe they only won for set design, right?), there probably won't be a recording. But, you never know. Anything can happen... if you let it... Hahahaha, get it? Oh, I slay me...

What's your friend called? And who is he in the cast?
