Blood Brothers: The 1995 London Cast Recording is a studio album featuring the score of the musical Blood Brothers by Willy Russell. A recording of the original London production of the show was released in 1983, featuring Barbara Dickson in the lead role of Mrs Johnstone. After touring the UK, the producer Bill Kenwright opened another production in London at the Albery Theatre in 1988. An album featuring that cast, including Kiki Dee as Mrs Johnstone, was released the same year.
Apart from the missing Overture, this London Cast recording contains just about all the same selections as the Columbia revival recording conducted by Lehmann Engel. The surprise here is Sian Phillips (remember Livia in 'I Claudius'?) as the husky-voiced vamp. The cast does a pretty good job with American accents. Denis Lawson overdoes it a little and Sian Phillips is a little too too on 'aspirin'. but those are minor cavils considering the overall 'oomph' and spirit of the performances.
