Product Description

Amazon.ca

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat completed the transition from cantata for schoolkids to big-budget glitzfest with Steven Pimlott's 1991 London revival. Here's the 1992 Canadian version of that show, and even if it's not an ideal recording--Janet Metz as the narrator is no match for Laurie Beechman in the original Broadway cast and there's a little too much synthesizer in the orchestrations--this CD is valuable for the performance of former teen pop idol Donny Osmond as the title character. He's in excellent voice, and was so right for the role that he was selected to preserve it for the 2000 video production. And of course the songs are still here, showcasing Rice's witty lyrics and Lloyd Webber's chameleon tendencies--dabbling in country, calypso, French cafés, and a King-like pharaoh--as well as favorites "Any Dream Will Do," "Close Every Door," and "Go, Go, Go Joseph." This production also includes the "Joseph Remix" (also known as the "Joseph Megamix"), a nine-minute medley of themes arranged with a heavy beat that was used for a kind of onstage aerobics routine as the show's postscript. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Cast Recording Overall April 15 2004
By Joey E
Format:Audio CD
This is the best overall cast recording of the three revival cast recordings available. After hearing (and seeing in Toronto Canada) Donny Osmond as Joseph, you won't want to hear anyone else in that role. I have all the other recordings of this show, and this is by far the best recording. True, the orchestrations are a bit electronic sounding, but then again, this is Andrew Lloyd Webber and the orchestrations make the best of the available instrumentation. The songs are uncomplicated, the lyrics are playful and witty. Janet Metz as the narrator can be a little wearing on the ears after awhile, but I personally like her performance the best of the three revival casts. The American cast with Michael Damian in the lead is a joke. And the British revival cast recording is mixed differently so that all of the performers seem to be soft and lost within the orchestra. If you want just one cast recording of Joseph, this one is the one to get!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoying Listening Jan. 19 2014

Purchased one copy as a gift, and a second copy for me. Both the receiver and I are enjoying listening to the many songs that bring back to us seeing Joseph live. Super voices and music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stands the test of time July 22 2012
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this CD many (many) years ago after watching Donny Osmond in Toronto. Since then I've married and had kids and yet the CD still hangs on in our play list. It was one of the few CDs that my kids have enjoyed at all stages of their lives - the youthful choir brings them in and the playful upbeat melodies are great to sing along too. They don't need to know of their Mother's secret childhood crush on a young Donny O.... It's a great family album - but don't forget to watch the video as well...Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Widescreen)

2.0 out of 5 stars Joseph is "OK" June 29 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ok, so I took a listen to Joseph. I am a HUGE musical fan, having directed many productions myself, and I must admit that I was extremly disapointed with the soundtrack. Although Donny Osmond's vocals are stellar, the back up voclas on the rest of the track were simply "ok". Really-really-really nothing to write home about! Had I heard this CD before, would have purchased the new London version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Donny Osmond is a perfect Joseph May 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I must admit, my sister and I went to see "Joseph" when it was in Boston a few years ago, mainly because we had childhood crushes on Donny Osmond! I absolutely loved the show. Donny Osmond was just fantastic in this role and the songs seem to be made for his voice. Whoever thought of casting him was right on. This CD is one you will sing along to while in the car, and even my 2 year old loves the music.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's ok May 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
my name is Tyson. I'm 16 and have a passion for music. Donny Osmond is by far the best Joseph I have heard out of all the cast recordings. However, I don't care much for the Canadian cast, especially Janet Metz the narrator. Her voice actually starts to annoy me. I think the best narrator is from the l.a. cast. My school is doing Joseph right now, tomorrow night is the last two performances. I am the lightboard operator so I have heard it at least 16 times from our school's cast. My friend Matt definately does an incredible job as Joseph and the best high school OR college Joseph I have heard through my years of ushering and tech for the different shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best March 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is an almost factual reenactment of what supposedly went on in the Bible. A boy named Joseph and his brothers have a fight and the whole story is all singing, so if you haven't seen the movie, you don't miss anything. It has all different types of music including Jamaican and French, and it is suitible for children of all ages. I also recommend the DVD that has all the songs in it. In my humble opinion, I'd say this is one of the best broadway shows of all time.
