CD Reviews

An old favorite

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Mr. President came out in the early 60's. It's the fun story of a ficticious president and his family in the White House. The story is more fluff than meat, but I like several of Irving Berlin's songs, especially the duet, "Empty Pockets Filled with Love." I'm afraid, though, that only those who knew it when, and may have an old LP in their collection, would buy the CD now to upgrade their collection as I did. If you're into Broadway show music, you may want to give it a try."

"This was a great cd. I saw Nan Fabray on a rerun of What's My Line? and my interest was piqued by her mentioning starring in the show. Sadly the show seems to have closed due to the long newspaper strike of 62-63 and of course, the assassination of JFK (even though the show's is not based on the kennedy's as is stated in the first song, you feel they must have had some influence.) All in all a great show but sadly won't probably be revived since so much has changed about the presidency since 1962."
Loved it then -- I still do

"I remember seeing this show on Broadway when I was a kid. I STILL remember the music and how much fun it was. It was Irving Berlin's last score -- not great, but sure close enough. So many unrelated things conspired like a Perfect Storm to close this show which was really very unfortunate.I wish this CD was more readily available because I would buy it in a flash."
