Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Digitally remastered edition of the original London cast of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical featuring lyrics by his former writing partner Tim Rice. Includes full libretto and deluxe packaging.The Likes Of Us was Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's first collaboration, written shortly after they met in 1965. It tells the story of Dr Thomas Barnardo, whose crusade to rescue children living on the streets became world-renowned. Starring Stephen Fry. A must for all true Andrew Lloyd Webber fans. 24 tracks. Universal.
At the beginning of this two-disc CD, recorded live at England's Sydmonton Festival, the Narrator (a droll Stephen Fry) welcomes the audience "to the 40th-anniversary performance and yet world premiere" of The Likes of Us. The show was the first collaboration between composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice, back in 1966, but it was never produced, and the duo went on to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Interestingly, The Likes of Us displays embryonic elements of both aspects of Webber's work: the early pop- and rock- tinged offerings ("You Can Never Make It Alone") and the latter neoclassical strains ("How Am I to Know," which can easily be imagined as a Phantom-type aria) with little hints of operetta ("Strange and Lovely Song"). Based on the story of the Victorian philanthropist, Dr. Thomas Barnardo, the show also incorporates a children's chorus, making it all sound at times--quite often, really—-like a slightly haphazard version of Oliver. It's a fascinating piece of juvenilia, but as such is of interest mostly to Webberheads. --Elisabeth Vincentelli
