Well, next up in decluttering my apartment is clearing out the big, tall stack of different Guys and Dolls CDs I've spent a few decades collecting. I think I could hack this particular task without any tears or maybe like you know without having to blog about it were it not for that gorgeous black square with the orange and yellow title letters thrown into the air alongside perfect pair of cartoon dice. I could pretend to be an original cast purist because I want you all to think the OBCR has my heart. But I gotta be me. Of course, I respect and admire the original cast album and I get that it set the tone not only for all my other cherished Guys and Dolls recordings, but also in fact for much of modern musical comedy. How's that for influential? Still, as genre-defining as that album may be, I can't say I enjoy it more than London's excellent National Theatre revival cast recording with Bob Hoskins and Julia McKenzie ideal as Nathan and Adelaide not to mention as Sarah Brown, Julie "Evita on the Concept Album" Covington showing you how to sing a musical theater soprano role with a striking absence of vibrato. Or even better, the Broadway revival album with an all-black cast led by a Tony nominated turn from Ernestine Jackson. There are many other great Guys and Dolls -es too, including the movie soundtrack surely Frank Sinatra is the best sung Nathan Detroit there ever was or will be , the complete symphonic studio recording Gregg Edelman 's Sky Masterson proving once again he's one of our most undervalued leading men and the unfair to include in any competition, but too delicious to leave out all-star "Reprise Musical Repertory Theatre" recording with Sinatra doing the songs he didn't get to do in the movie plus Sammy Davis Jr. I knew Guys and Dolls from having seen the movie which omits many of the best songs!
