Hello, is there any news on the current broadway cast recording Les Miserables? I know there are already many recordings. Any hope for this cast having one?

Thanks,
-Eddie

There is no news because it isn't happening. The market for Les Miz recordings is over saturated as it is. With the recent addition of the 25th anniversary recording, another one really isn't necessary.

As great as it would be for a cast recording to happen with this cast, I'm pretty sure all chances of it actually happening are gone.

The chances of yet another LES MISERABLES recording are second to none... Sooo... Yeah.

Yeah. There wasn't even a separate audio recording of the 25th anniversary concert.

I wish too Eddie, but you won't get one. I would want it done live too like the 25th, but at least we got that one live.

I don't think that we'll be getting a full recording but I would like to see a highlights album. Ramin's version of Bring Him Home is too beautiful to not document.

Oh, it's definitely been documented...

I would love to hear a revival cast album. It seems a shame not to release one. When I saw the show, Nikki was out; and as great as her understudy was, I would love to hear her Eponine. (Haters gonna hate, I know, but the girl's got a beautifully strange voice.) Meanwhile fanboys and girls will have to settle for the Times's "In Performance" of Ramin doing a sumptuous "Bring Him Home" (not quite as goose-bump-inducing as the real thing, but still lovely):

Wow, goosebumps! Thanks for posting that. Incredible.

I saw the show a couple of weeks ago, and Aaron Walpole was on as Jean Valjean. I think I have to make a return trip to see (and hear) Ramin!

"There wasn't even a separate audio recording of the 25th anniversary concert."

A friend of mine sent me an album of the concert to add to iTunes. Was that just audio some random person ripped from the DVD? (I'm not being sarcastic, this is a legitimate question.)

Yes; there's no actual separate audio recording of that concert.

Huh, the more you know! I was wondering why it sounded a bit low in quality compared to my other recordings.

Although at first it seems there wouldn't be a need, they could probably easily sell a highlights cd or something along the lines of what How To Succeed did as the show itself has fans worldwide who would buy it and Ramin himself has quite a growing loyal fanbase

I wish they would, but I guess it's not going to happen. I just saw this tonight and the cast was incredible, really strong all around. I would have loved a recording of any of Ramin's songs and any song featuring Kyle Scatliffe. What incredible voices.

Ramin recorded "Bring Him Home" (as well as "I Dreamed A Dream") as a bonus track for his self-titled album. It's floating around Tumblr somewhere, I know.

Thank you, there is a professional recording on Youtube. I just keep watching it over and over. Haha.

I wish too - after seeing the new Les Mis twice, I can't stand listening to my old recordings by comparison...

If you type in his name in iTunes, "Bring Him Home" and "Empty Chairs at Empty Tables" are both available. Beautiful songs.
