Patti LuPone's Gypsy 3.49 on iTunes#1
Posted: 2/8/09 at 3:20pm
I saw this and thought it was a real bargain for such a recent show.

I've just downloaded it anyway.

It's a lot of money for a dreadful show.

I haven't listened to it yet but I'd rather waste 3.49 than the 15 or more I often have to pay for cast recordings.

incredibly painful - "Mr. Goldstone" was/is my favourite number from Gypsy...but bloody hell - Patti stole it, stomped on it, added a few unwanted glissandi, S**t on it then gave me it back as a present...

I'm an old traditionalist, I love the packaging and the literature that goes with the CD' format.

I loved most of the performances on this recording but found that all the acting in the line swas extremely hammed. Like the spoken lines in 'All I Need is the Girl' are awful. I think the orchestra sounds great and Laura Benanti is at her best. I do like Patti, yes, I know, but it was no better than any of the other Gypsy recordings out there you know? Not entirely dissapointed though :)

I download if its a POP cd (yes, I listen to pop music occasionally!) but if its a nice Cast Recording i have to buy it to have it in hand and look at the nice pictures/lyrics etc!

I've not yet got this version- I actually LIKED the Gypsy with Bernadette Peters... Thought it was a good cd, and I liked her take on the roll!

Overpriced. Even at 10 pence!
