The Best Mikado
Of the 8 recordings of The Mikado I've heard, this one is definitely my favorite. General agreement with the reviewer below. If only this issue had been released in Stereo! Still, we can be thankful for what remains. Thomas Round is an amazing Nanki-Poo. Peter Pratt's quick tempo for the List Song works marvelously. The skip in Act 2 happens near the end of Donald Adams' splendid rendition of "My object all sublime" -- of all places. Great singing from everyone, unlike the 1973 DOC recording. Bottom line: it's 2 credits: what have you got to lose? UPDATE: Album price has been hiked to $12 -- 12 times the old price! Not worth it anymore - try another recording or store.
