The original London cast recording of Marguerite was released in July on the First Night Records label. The 26 track CD includes the wonderful songs: Jazz Time, China Doll, The Face I See, Time Was When, Intoxication and How Did I Get To Where I Am? This CD is highly recommended and if you can’t get to see the show, the short dialogue passages fill in the story and with the songs you get a real feel of the show.
