Well, yes - but in a similar way to the comment I made about the dialogue, I think they were going for a certain period-esque style that is just on the line of camp - so again, it may have come across better in seeing the show. A lot of that recording, on its own terms, seems to be a precursor to the meta-musicals we have now - a certain sense of making (affectionate) fun of the material instead of actually trying to bring a real truth to it. But I think a show like Dames At Sea had already done that better, and with more honesty, with original material instead of a pre-existing score.
I do love the male quartet in "Hubby Gone Blues," though. (And Gallagher knocks that song out of the park too.)
