"I assume that if you have made it to reading this review it would be redundant to try to sell you on My Fair Lady...I'm recommending this particular performance. Obviously the film is out of the question. One can only hope that Jack Warner got his just rewards post mortem. This recording is in stereo which was the original reason to release it in 1959. (the cast is identical to the new york album) The songs are so exquisitely rendered...informed by years of performance in New York. Harrison's "accustomed to her face" is utterly poignant. magisterial even. Julie Andrews is superb in every way. Her defiance in just you wait is biting and the sweetness of "Loverly" and "I could have danced..." this album has such riches of feeling. I hope that they will remaster this performance as with the New York 1956 one. Not to worry however; the recording has more than adequate sonics."
I agree that this is the one.

"I recently decided to replace a worn out audio tape I had from years ago with a spiffy new CD of "My Fair Lady." I purchased the Broadway cast recording and was...really disappointed. This is a very measured performance by all the actors that only seems to really kick in towards the end. The London recording was made later. It is wonderful. Every performance is much improved, more vital, more witty, more sarcastic. I highly recommend it."
