Has anybody heard the 1989 demo recording for Children of Eden? Is it any good? Does anybody know where I could find a copy?
Thanks

Well, via my own devices I found a copy and as a favor to everyone, I uploaded it to SoundCloud
Here it is, though it's not very good

I've got the CD of the Original Cast. Do you know who the demo cast are ? Who's singing with Frances on In Whatever Time We Have and who's singing on Children of Eden as it doesn't sound like Shezwae Powell ?

Martin Smith is Adam on the demo, as he was in the OLC, and it might be Graham Bickley singing on In Whatever....though i could be wrong.
I have a different demo of Lost In The Wilderness, sung by Gavin Creel.

Im not a huge fan of Stranger To The Rain, but like the version on the OLC, though i found this that i think is very telling about the OLC version. When asked about the song Stephen Schwartz wrote: The arrangement of "Stranger to the Rain" was done by John Cameron at the request of (some might say the insistence of) Frances Ruffelle. I'm glad you like it, but I'm afraid I don't share your enthusiasm.

Ouch!
