I never really liked "Everybody says don't" until now.

What happened to the musicality of Sondheim v2 with Victoria Clark singing "IN BUDDY'S EYES" and "LOSING MY MIND"?

There was so much lacking in Rose and that's why she had to prove herself through her children. [interviewer]In ways that reminded you of your mom?[/interviewer]. Let's just say the role was very interesting for me. That one was the most interesting [I've ever played]" - Bernadette Peters (2018)

This doesn't make up for the fact that no one recorded the Encores production.

Indeed. I loved Donna Murphy's "Me and my Town".

I also don't see it listed on the official website like the BWW article mentions.

It was posted on their Facebook page. No 'official' announcements as to the date, but they've been hinting at it for a while now. It's good to have proof, too.
IMHO I see Queenie as being more of a brunette...

Better late than never, but seriously, how long ago was this recorded? It's about time.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

Donna Murphy's "Me and My Town" was genius. I can't believe they're releasing this one, so excited.
"Some people can thrive and bloom living life in a living room, that's perfect for some people of one hundred and five. But I at least gotta try, when I think of all the sights that I gotta see, all the places I gotta play, all the things that I gotta be at"

GossipGuy, that line about the dialogue got me too.
I'm hopeful in a tentative way.

^I wish I knew. This would be a great recording of ANYONE CAN WHISTLE if they would just release it right now.

I saw this thread bumped and thought it was finally going to be released... But nope, still in production hell. I love the One Touch of Venus recording. I just want a score that I absolutely LOVE. Please release it.

For what it's worth, I think they announced that it would be the next release after "The Landing"

John Yap from JAY has posted on FB recently, very vaguely, that it is finally being penciled in to the upcoming releases--2 or 3 beforehand though. Argh--I remember reading about this in The Sondheim Review in, I swear, twelve years back. I know releasing these albums is an expensive prospect for JAY--following the prolonged release of One Touch of Venus I see all the issues they have to deal with and they can only do one at a time--but really, a major Sondheim recording being in the vaults for so long? (One benefit, potentially, is John Barrowman now is a better known name than he was then.)

This recording has been "forthcoming" since I was in high school. It seems like every few years there's some progress dangled, and then it's another year or two before another middling announcement is made.

Every couple months I try to check up on this and it's always merely "forthcoming".

If my memory serves my right this recording was talked about in the 1990s. So until I see it physically I won't believe it!

That clip sounds great.  It's sad that it keeps getting put off.

Another song released. This time it's "A Parade in Town". Jay Records says they are "starting to compile design materials for packaging", so fingers crossed we finally get a release.
