Roustabout At The Fair' is another nice 'spliced' album with lots of surprises, this time the producers choose to use both 'Roustabout' and 'It Happened At The World's Fair'. Combined you get a new fresh album which sounds like it's brand new mainly due to the clever edits which also brings extended and very different sounding versions of master tracks.
Just listen to the incredible version of 'Roustabout' with a running time of 5.01 minutes, including 8 different takes to make a very nice new track.
'It's A Wonderful World' has a longer intro and sounds very different due to the different mix, and also 'Big Love Big Heartache' sounds very different although there was only one take to work with.
Fans of the series will know what to expect and will again not be disappointed by this nice release.
The artwork also 'combines' the two movies in a clever way.
