The new recording is stunning. There's very little about it that I don't like. Having some of the dialogue included is fantastic. What a treat. I'll post more about it later.

Okay, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that this recording is the best recording of the show ever. I love the OBC and the Concert recording, but this is just incredible on every level.

I think you are right. While the obcr has the authentic performances, it's damaged by the cuts, and the other recordings are simply not as well acted.

I dunno, I love the Papermill recording (for its completeness more than anything) but Danny Burstein, Jan Maxwell, and the orchestra alone put this above that one in my book.

I love Jan Maxwell and Danny Brnstien but I like Dee Hoty and Tony Robert even more.
plus Papermill has some of the last legends doing the older roles... Ann Miller, Saddler and Champion, Betty Garrett..irrepalaceable.
