Durla's mom speaks

"I recommend it for its story-telling qualities . Even if you have not seen the play, you will get the story from the songs. My daughter Erin Jones played Durla in the play at the Country Playhouse in Houston. After seeing it 10 times, I really wanted to be able to hear that toe-tapping, image-provoking music again. My husband, who hates musicals, loves the songs, and though we were able to find the record at a garage sale, we still wanted to be able to hear the soundtrack more conveniently. I had been disappointed to not be able to find the play on CD because the music in the movie is nowhere near the same. Thanks for adding it to your inventory!"
Great, but the music seems uncreative after a while!

"The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas ran for well over three years on Broadway and this recording shows why.Plot- First to respond to those who have said that the plot is tasteless and vulgar. I really do not adhere to that belief. To summarize, this is about a Whorehouse that have been in business since the 1800's and now some TV evangelist makes it his mission to shut it down. I think the plot is considered vulgar by some just because of the connotation, whore. Look past that and in the end we find the real charm in the show is that the girls do not pretend to be anything by call girls. Moreover nowhere in the show do we see anything that we wouldn't let are child see.Music- Well here is the criticism, the music might be good, but the melody for many of the songs are the same. This is most evident in "Girl your a woman," and "Bus From Amarillo," and to some extent, "Good Ole Girl" and Hard Candy Christmas."Actors: I would have to say there are two highlights to the cast. A wonderful preformance by Jay Garner as the Govenor of Texas and the song "Sidestep" is done to perfection. And then in the lead role of Miss Mona, "Carol Gylinn." Truly somebody who could sing and produce a great performance.Overall, buy it and listen to theater from a simpler time. True it cannot compete with the flowing rhythms of Phantom or Les Misrables, but that was never a goal. it was meant to be theater that was fun to attend and one where you could learn the melodies on the first viewing."
Glad that the Cast Recording finally arrived...

"I've always liked the musical better than the movie, so I was thrilled to find that the Cast recording has finally been released on CD.From the fun and lively "24 Hours of Loving", "Aggie Song", and "Lil' Old Bitty Pissant Country Place", to the moving "Girl, You're a Woman" and "Doatsy Mae", to the heartwrenching (if you've seen it performed well, then you know) "Hard Candy Christmas", this is a nice score, far superior to the completely modified and edited movie soundtrack (which also has its good points; don't get me wrong, I'm not intending to completely slam the movie.) I would definitely recommend this CD to musical theatre lovers."
