I. Love. It.

I just don't understand why people aren't giving this show five stars. The music is great. And for those saying that Jim Dale can't sing, you clearly are forgetting the millions of other singers people listen to that actually can't sing. Barnum is a performer's role, and Jim Dale can clearly perform and sing. The best songs are, in my opinion, "Thank God I'm Old," "I Like Your Style," "Bigger Isn't Better," "Out There," and "Join the Circus." Buy it.

Great soundtrack for singing!

There is a sucker born every minute, and I'm one of them. This was one of my favorite albums back in high school (1980's). Jim Dale is most known now for his award-winning narration of the Harry Potter audio books. But you should hear him sing! Fabulous, fun, festive... I love love love this musical!

a classic

A note to the previous reviewers, and anyone else who thinks Jim Dale is new to the vocal performance world, this musical opened on Broadway in 1980 and ran for two years. These are great songs, and he was fantastic in this role. Yeah, Glenn Close was pretty good too. ;o) I personally was very happy to see this available on iTunes - my vinyl wore out years ago.
