I absolutely HATE Covington's voice. Just not as powerful as Patti LuPone. I accidentally bought the concept recording, thinking I'd hear LuPone. Boy, was I in for a surprise! Luckily, some loser bought it used from me off Amazon. Now I need to get the London recording. That's the one with Patti, right?

I didn't know that Evita was a "work in progress" though.

The London recording has Elaine Paige, and it's a bit tougher to find (out of print, IIRC). You want the Original Broadway Cast, which is fairly readily available.

I agree LuPone kicks ass...in anything she does. Shes definitely my favorite Eva. And Mrs. Lovett, and Norma Desmond...and anything she does.

On the OBC I have a problem understanding Evita and Peron at times. But I have never listened to the concept album. Mandy is the man. I really like colm but I dont see him as Che. Mandy is Che

Thats kind of funny, because I believe Patti and Mandy probably have the most "pronounced" voices. Especially Mandy!!!!

I didnt say Mandi I said evita and peron. Mandy played che and is amazing. BUt I will say isnt as bad as I once thought but peron is still tough to undrstand at times.
