Ted Keegan Sings

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Dave Nathan
Since his Broadway debut in the musical Sweeney Todd, singer Ted Keegan has appeared in a variety of roles for the musical stage, not the least of which was as the deformed musician in the Phantom of the Opera. For his first solo album, Keegan understandably sticks with what he knows best, songs from musical plays, favoring those by Fred Ebb and John Kander. While there are some familiar songs present, Keegan dwells mostly on songs which may be from big musicals, but not necessarily the hits of the show. One of these is a rollicking "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat," the Salvation Army thumper from Guys and Dolls. There are also songs from musicals neither which were ...

All Music Guide - Dave Nathan
Since his Broadway debut in the musical Sweeney Todd, singer Ted Keegan has appeared in a variety of roles for the musical stage, not the least of which was as the deformed musician in the Phantom of the Opera. For his first solo album, Keegan understandably sticks with what he knows best, songs from musical plays, favoring those by Fred Ebb and John Kander. While there are some familiar songs present, Keegan dwells mostly on songs which may be from big musicals, but not necessarily the hits of the show. One of these is a rollicking "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat," the Salvation Army thumper from Guys and Dolls. There are also songs from musicals neither which were smashes nor are especially remembered for any particular song, such as "A Quiet Thing" delivered by Keegan in a heartfelt manner accompanied by the acoustic guitar of Michael Holland. Keegan, with his powerful but flexible and expressive voice, throws himself completely into each song on this distinctive play list, irrespective of origin or notoriety. The result is that this album has some of the attributes usually reserved for a classical lieder recital. The way the singer shapes each of the songs, giving each tune a separate set of characteristics rather than trying to pull all of them under a single performing umbrella, also says much about why Keegan has been so successful in a wide variety of roles for the musical stage. He is sadly apologetic and poignant on "I Don't Remember You" and floats on top of Steve Kenyon's flute on "Some Girls." One of the fun items is an old-time music hall rendition of "Sara Lee." Keegan is pure entertainer through and through and this album reflects that happy condition. Recommended.

    Ted is Awesome!

    This is a great album and I can't wait until he releases another. He is wonderful in Phantom of the Opera and Kate is right, you should see it if it comes to your town (it's an awesome experience for anyone)! He is a great person (I got the priviledge of meeting him) and he has a spectacular voice. Ted, if you read this, God bless and I'll be praying for you!

    Wonderful CD!!!!!

    This is a fantastic CD! I absolutely loved it! All the songs are great, Ted Keegan has the most wonderful, the most beautiful voice I've ever heard! This is a great buy! I think I'm wearing out my copy of this CD because I play it so much! ''Sara Lee'' and ''The Music of the Night'' are my top favorites, not that the rest of the songs are any less greater than these two. :-) I just wish he would make more CDs! It's absolutely, positively superb!!

    Ted Keegan... what a voice!

    An awesome recording. Ted Keegan has the most superb voice I have ever heard! He is currently touring the United States as 'The Phantom of the Opera' in the Music Box touring Company. If it comes to your town, don't miss it! :-) This CD is very good. I recommend it to anyone and everyone who's the least bit interested in Musical Theatre, all the way to Total Fans *like me*. As you can all listen to parts of the recorded songs yourselves, I won't go into detail. But I WILL say this. Mr. Keegan is a very nice person, a very proffesional actor, and an astounding singer. Now, once this Cd has come out to almost every store that carries CDs, don't you think we should make this CD a top seller!? lol. I don't know about you, but that sounds good to me! Well, I should probably end this, but in conclusion, I would like to say... Ted Keegan Sings Beautifully!! :-D Thanks folks, e-mail me if you're interested in becoming a 'known' Ted fan... (I'm a moderator of the 'Ted Keegan Fans Unite' e-mail list!) Cheers!
