BILLY BARNES' L.A.
(4 out of 5 stars)
"The supremely talented Billy Barnes wrote and composed this musical tribute to the City of the Angels, a not quite so succesful production as "Billy Barnes People". Nevertheless, the lyrics are witty and the music a delight. It is a format which really doesn't exist these days, although Lypsinka has used some of the material in his/her shows. Musical Revues were a staple of Broadway and London forty years ago, and it is good that recordings such as this are made available. Billy Barnes is best known for his song "Have I Stayed Too Long at the Fair" which was later recorded by Barbra Steisand, but this CD gives a glimpse of his enormous if rather overlooked talents. For fans of musical theater and popular song, this is an excellent addition to personal libraries, and which bears listening to over and over again."
