While Angela is probably my favorite Rose, the rest of the cast doesn't impress me on that album. :?

At the end of the day it is all about Rose. Angela's Rose is the best vocally and emotionally.

Mmm, it's true.

I mistakingly listened to Merman's first, and Angela was beating down my door with her Tony award.

It may be all about Rose, but if you don't get the 2008 Lupone version, you'll be missing out on the ONLY good recording of "If Momma Was Married" in existence. Just sayin'...

And why start with the best? I often buy two recordings of a show, just to get the different aspects, and I usually buy the ones with bad reputation first. In the case of Gypsy I bought the Bernadette Peters version first, then the Patti LuPone version.
