"For many years,before the advent of the compact disc, you could not beg borrow or steal a copy of this soundtrack,and I made the mistake of loaning mine out.Even then you could only get it from a "special TV offer". Thank goodness for CDs! I own both the original Julie Andrews version as well as this one. I found Lesley Warren to be an excellent Cinderella, although she lacked the depth and range of Julie Andrews. Stuart Damon as the prince is tops,and I found the haunting "Loneliness of evening". It is too bad that the technology we have today and have had since the 60's wasnt around when the original was done... all that remains other than the recordings are some fuzzy clips of Andrew's production. I enjoyed the supporting cast of the '65 edition,especially "why would a fellow" and of course "Its possible" with Celeste Holm. An all around good recording!"
CINDERELLA with Leslie Ann Warren - Outstanding!

"There are many personal reasons why I like this over the Julie Andrews version. Many stem from the lovely TV presentation but - THIS CD - recaptures all of the magic of the songs and the lovely voices which the first version - somehow lacked.Leslie Ann Warren and the rest of the stellar cast will always be engraved in my head because this was the version that CBS chose to repeat year after year. I am not even sure if the Julie Andrews version was ever rebroadcast.Every song has been indelibly carved into my sub-conscious, the charming voices of Celeste Holm, Pat Carroll and Stuart Damon - their superior acting and comedic talents and timing lend themselves to just about the most perfect modern American musical. Just so wonderful. These songs are part of Americana: In My Own Little Corner, It's Possible, Do I Love You Because You're Wonderful? Ten Minutes Ago, Why Would A Fellow Ever Once Prefer a Girl who's Merely Lovely? and others."
A lively, entertaining "Cinderella"

"If "Cinderella" is second-string R&H -- John Simon has called it "anodyne" -- it is very entertaining R&H. Even after 37 years the second CBS special has a glow that suffuses this album. It's cruder but livelier than the 1957 affair as this is a true soundtrack album, unlike Goddard Lieberson's strictly studio version; the cast is more energetic, likewise John Green's conducting. The faults are the same; as Alec Wilder said of the sublime "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?", the composer seems to have changed stations before the ending. But it is still great fun, a rare quality found perhaps in "Flower Drum Song" and not much else. Note: the engineers decided to record this not for the stereo systems of 2002 but for the little TV speakers of the mid-sixties, hence the sound is somewhat compressed."
