To tell you the truth, I was so shaken and distracted from the sky falling that I had a hard time focusing on the ending. I did notice the difference - it's only about 10 seconds at the very end, and I LOVED it. I know people on other forums are debating it. To me, anything Patti does on stage works.
Thanks for letting me know about Tyne Daly, and -- how sad that she had to do the recording while she was sick! She really does sound quite bad, and that is how people will hear it and remember it. I love everything else about the recording, so I'm disappointed that there isn't a "healthy" version of her singing!
And yes, Laura Benanti is Gypsy and she's great!
