Cast Aside: Despite a Smaller Role in Culture, The Show Goes On For Broadway Albums (WSJ): "Just as the Broadway musical has been pushed to the sidelines by other forms of mainstream American entertainment, so has the Broadway cast album declined as a cultural force. It still has important functions: as a marketing tool, a historical document, a memento of an evening to be cherished. But as a vital facet of the recording industry, those who make the records say, the cast album is in a precarious state."
