Another review piece for the "Gold" CD. This time, it's the Octet's arrangement of "Hair" from the 1960's hippy musical that goes by the same name. Since the Octet's version was my first encounter with the song, I'd like to begin by letting you see and hear the original. Well, it's from the movie...made in 1979.
But this was my introduction to the musical.
The Octet's version actually begins with "She asks me why I'm just a hairy guy." I took the sample from a several seconds into the song.
For me, since I heard the Octet version before the movie version, I have to say that the Octo-version sounds "more correct". The perfect version.
This is one of my 3 FAVORITES on the Gold CD (and, indeed, one of my favorites for all the Octet music I have or have heard.) I like all of their music. I love most of their music. But this. This is spec-freaking-tacular!
So...I guess I'll just be doing spot-reviews. I did figure out what I did wrong with the uploads. No. It wasn't the computer. It was me. I take all the blame for that.
And, with that, I shall review again. Possibly Friday. But I procrastinate, so don't hold me to it.
