"Not having seen this production of "Hello, Dolly!", i can only say so much about this recording. Carol Channing is much better on this recording than the origonal. Her voice is huskier and throatier than EVER!. Florence Lacey sings the role of Irene Molloy very nicely and with care. Jay Garner makes the perfect Horace Vandergelder. The only reason that this recording gets 4 stars instead of 5, is that i don't understand why they would make ANOTHER recording of the SAME musical with the SAME star?. The only reason i bought this recording instead of the origonal is because the sound quality is far superior on this recording. Enjoy!"

"FIRST THE GOOD NEWS-THIS IS THE FIRST NEARLY COMPLETE RECORDING OF THE "DOLLY" SCORE INCLUDING "THE WAITERS GALLOP" THE FRANTIC AND ENERGETIC DANCE THAT PRECEDES THE TITLE NUMBER. NOW FOR THE BAD NEWS-WHETHER YOU LIKE HER OR NOT THE CHARM ABOUT CAROL CHANNING IS HER VOICE WHICH SOUNDS LIKE A STRANGULATED DUCK-ON THIS RECORDING AND WELL INTO HER SEVENTIES SHE SOUNDS MORE LIKE A COMATOSE DUCK. SO MY SUGGESTION IS BUY THE ORIGINAL CAST ALBUM WHEN HER UNUSUAL VOICE HAD ITS VIBRANCY AND BUY THIS FOR ITS COMPLETENESS WITH NOSTALGIA FOR WHAT USED TO BE."
This is great Joy!

"Fortunatly I saw this production in San Francisco and New York. It was great to see Carol Channing in her best known role. She is unique! But Florence Lacey with her brilliant soprano voice singing "Ribbons down my back" gives you shivers all over! She make this CD to a special one."
