Why not the whole album?

This is one of the strongest scores Sondheim has written. Why is it that we can not buy the whole CD?

This is not, I repeat, NOT, the as-advertised "original" cast recording.
The original is the version from 1986, with which you will be much, much happier. the song "That Frank" is just a mediocre replacement for "Rich and Happy," and "The Blob" is simply mediocre. In fact, the cast in general is somewhat mediocre.

Sondheim's favorite

Some reveiewers below say that this isn't a good version, but if you're a real musical theater enthusiast, you'll be interested to know that Sondheim said that in mounting THIS production in Leicester England the creative team "finally suceeded in fixing the show to our satisfaction." People get attached to songs they hear in the original album, but personally, I want to hear the version Sondheim said was ultimately the show he wanted to make.
