Comments

Traded to me in the tapers original .Wav files.
Excellent recording that required very little work other than a touch of de-clipping 

during the audience reactions to the wonderful on stage performances from one of the newer 

Oliver's, and comedian Russ Abbot (who had played 'Fagin' during the 

shows previous London run) and was filling in for the sick Rowan Atkinson.
