Two and a half months is an awful long time to wait for Jordan Donica's "On the Street Where You Live." So. Good.

It will be worth it, surely.

I hope this recording is better than those for South Pacific and King and I. I find both to be incredibly lifeless, failing to capture any of the magic that was on stage.

Any idea if this will be available for digital download, say on iTunes or someplace else. Much better for me since I don’t own a CD player. 

Still a month away before it’s released... Broadway Records to release MY FAIR LADY cast album

When the album was announced, the Playbill article said it would be available digitally and physically on June 8.

I emailed them and asked this:

In regards to the upcoming release, I’m only seeing references to a CD, whereas the annoucement indicated a Digital Download. Since I don’t own a CD player and listen to most all of my music off of my iPhone (i.e. Napster, previously Rhapsody, etc.), I’d be interested in the Digital Download. Any idea of the cost, and will it be released the same day as the CD?

Thank you.

 

Their response:

Hello - MY FAIR LADY will be available on iTunes etc on June 8th!

 

So, it looks like I’ll be buying it off of iTunes!

Do you think they'll be putting it on spotify as well?

Unfortunately the email only mentioned iTunes specifically, with the “etc.” leaving us hanging on what other services the digital download would be available for purchase. I’d love for it to show up on Napster as well, but my gut feeling says that it won’t be on the monthly pay streaming networks for several months after it’s released. Hopefully I’m wrong.

Yeah that's what I'm expecting too, like what they did with Once on this Island and Falsettos. I'm friends with Jordan Donica so I'll probably be buying the album either way :)

Broadway Records does not typically put their albums on Spotify or Apple Music right away. I don't blame them - the money they make from streaming is laughable.

Just brought this home.  I bought it last night in NYC.  It is splendid!   Everyone is just top notch.  The cd is full of life, and the booklet is beyond gorgeous, the cover art --- everything.  To me it is an example of just how to do a cd RIGHT!   I love it!  And lots of dialog ---- which is something I truly enjoy.  The songs are truly in a fine dramatic context.

Where in NYC were you able to buy it this early?

I saw on social media that Broadway Records had apparently shipped them out. I'm dying to hear it.

I'm so jealous! I hate having to wait until the 8th - I am absolutely dying to hear it. Lauren Ambrose's voice is like sweet candy to me.

I just placed an order on BR's website, and it somehow ended up ordering 12 instead of 1 copy. (I blame my address autofill) 

I noticed it right when I hit submit. Uggggh! Hopefully someone reads the emails to the "contact us" screen or the private messages on the FB page.

I totally empathize and think that sucks, but I also laughed hysterically at your misfortune.

LOL you should. It was a stupid mistake. 

The $12.99 is the same price as amazon. When the numbers are close like that I prefer to order direct.

Kudos to BR's customer service. They replied quickly and canceled the oversized order. wink

 

I am really looking forward to this album.

I am THRILLED to share that this cast recording sounds unbelievable!!! Lauren Ambrose in particular is really beyond sensational. I was hesitant since Broadway Records is pretty hit-or-miss, but this album will be one I cherish forever. So relieved!!

I ordered mine from Amazon. Hoping it gets here early. I've been waiting so long for a new album of My Fair Lady. I really can't wait to hear it.

GeorgeandDot, I think you'll love it. I know you aren't the biggest fan of this production, but this album sounds lush and full. I adore it already.
