Barbara Dickson - Blood Brothers (2000) Retail CD
I am a firm fan of Blood Brothers and was pleased to find this CD at my local music store. Barbara Dickson makes a fantastic Mrs Johnstone (despite frequently sounding as though she is singing with a Welsh accent).I find Andrew Schofield as the narrator a little bland, and not as haunting as other narrators I have heard (Keith Burns is my favourite narrator but unfortunately he is not on CD).George Costigan makes a good Mickey (not as good as Sean Jones who injects more youth into his performance) with a convincing rendition of Sunday Afternoon/My Friend, however I dislike Andrew C. Wadsworthmore… as Eddie- his vocal range isn't suited to the part and 'Saying A Word' therefore isn't as powerful as it should be. Wendy Murray is a brilliant Mrs Lyons, and Alan Leith sings Miss Jones well. They say there's nothing like an original cast, and I partly agree. This is a good version of Blood Brothers, but (and there has to be a but) the fade on the end of Tell Me It's Not True ruins it, and to refer to the title of this review- where are half of the songs? Now, not having seen the original performed on stage I can't say what's been added in since, but I don't think it's been extended quite that much! The narrator has a much greater part, singing Shoes Upon The Table at least four or five times- and what happened to That Guy? I must say the '95 cast is much better as it includes all of the songs and narration- the show as it should be.
