CD Reviews

Great Songs, Occasionally Poorly Executed
(4 out of 5 stars)

""My Favorite Broadway Songs" is one of the best Bing Crosby releases in years. The problems with this release are small. Firstly, the remastering of "Close As Pages in a Book" is nonexistant. The background noise obscures and ruins the recording. Trudy Erwin, Bing's duet partner on both "People Will Say We're in Love" and "Oh! What a Beautiful Mornin'" is only listed on the latter. And "I Love You" is not the correct version. This is a different 1944 recording of a Grieg song with the same title, not the Cole Porter tune. However, these small things should not deter you from picking this release up -- at this price, it's a steal! It does not feature any of Crosby's oft-rereleased hits. It's filled with wonderful, sweet ballads, beautifully arranged. Crosby is in fantastic voice throughout, since these recordings date from the 1943-53 period. The highlights include "I've Never Been in Love Before" and "I Still See Elisa.""
