Over in the Soundtracks/Original Cast Recordings section, I picked up a copy of the Grease album, mostly for Barrowmania OCD purposes. Interestingly this copy has a MADE IN FRANCE sticker on the outer wrapping, but a MADE IN CANADA sticker on the jewel box itself.
I almost don't care about the music, but having John in the leather jacket on the cover and in the white t-shirt with muscular arm showing on the inside of the insert is worth the price of admission right there.
Grease was my senior high-school musical. I was assistant stage manager. My big contribution was to help with the transition from Freddy My Love to Greased Lightning, and I was the radio voice announcing Raining On Prom Night. Our Danny was the boy I was obsessed with for the better part of Jr. High School and High School. I still google stalk him from time to time as he has gone on to a very successful career as a theater director.
I did get to the gym this AM, and once I finish my LJ catch-up, I'll start working on the novel.
