Angela Lansbury sings “Some People” on the UK LP release (RCA Red Seal SER 5686) of the original London cast album of Gypsy.
Lansbury re-recorded the number for the US release (RCA Red Seal LBL1 5004), which is the one used on the CD. She opts for the higher ending on this earlier take.

The musical performance section begins at 8:40
I don’t know what happens before the 8:40 mark, but here’s what happens after (spoiler alert: it’s the best thing ever)
- Karen Ziemba, Donna Murphy and Marin Mazzie with the Craziest Hair You’ve Ever Seen sing “It’s Today”
- Donna sings “There’s a Parade in Town”
- Karen Ziemba sings the most darling version of “That’s How Young I Feel”
- Marin (and her batshit crazy hair) bring ALL THE FEELS to “I Don’t Want to Know”
- Nathan Lane sings “You’ll Never Get Away from Me”
- Nathan Lane sings “Worst Pies in London” in cockney falsetto
- Len Cariou croaks out some of “Mame” and then it’s taken over by a bevy of tuxedoed gents.
- Angie makes the most adorable and appreciative faces throughout
Angela Lansbury, Mame!
A Live recording of I Met a Man, made during the 1971 Boston tryouts of Bob Merrill and Jule Styne’s PrettyBelle. Angela Lansbury’s huge Broadway “belt” is vividly captured here. I love her and i love this song.
One of my favorite songs of all time. Definitely top 10
