I haven't voted because there are some bits of the LuPone recording that I love, and some bits of the revival with Sally Anne Triplett that I love, and I can't decide between the two! Interestingly, I heard some sections of a 1989 Australian cast recording (1987 version) today, and what I heard I really liked. I'll withhold further opinions until I've heard it all though....

I love everything about the LuPone recording...cept the chick that sings "Buddie Beware". Is it better on the later recordings?

Like the Lupone version best
I also have a studio recording with Luois Gold and Greg Edelman, but it's not so great

No, she's good, but if I'm going to listen to that song, I'd rather a beltier, more aweing recording of it. I guess what I'm trying to say is, I want it sung "pretty" lol. I know that sounds silly, but one can still do a character voice and keep it fierce... she's not fierce unfortunately. As for her acting and interpretation, I can't argue that as I didn't see the production (I wasn't even born yet), but she sounds like a good Erma. I just wish she had a more powerhouse voice for it.
