MAGNIFICENT RECORDING!!!
01/05/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"KISMET IS PROBABLY MY FAVORITE BROADWAY MUSICAL AND THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE GREATEST RECORDING OF KISMET EVER. THE GREAT BARITONE ROBERT MERRILL, AS THE POET, IS IN HIS POSITIVE GLORIOUS PRIME. MERRILL SINGS THIS MUSIC MORE EFFORTLESSLY, EXCITING, AND BEAUTIFULLY THAN ANYONE I HAVE EVER HEARD. THE EASE THAT HE SINGS HIS HIGH G'S IS BREATHTAKING. KENNETH MCKELLAR SINGS THE ROLE OF THE PRINCE MORE BEAUTIFULLY THAN I HAVE EVER HEARD. HIS GOLDEN LYRIC TENOR VOICE IS DEFFINITELY MADE FOR THIS MUSIC. EVERYONE IN THIS CAST, INCLUDING A VERY RICH SOUNDING MEZZO-SOPRANO REGINA RESNIK, IS PERFECT FOR THEIR ROLES. THE LUSH SOUNDS OF MONTOVANI AND HIS ORCHESTRA IS JUST SENSUOUS. THE SOUND QUALITY OF THIS RECORDING IS ALSO VERY GOOD. I MUCH PREFER THIS RECORDING TO THE ONE ON SONY WITH SAMUEL RAMEY. ONCE YOU LISTEN TO THIS RECORDING OF KISMET, YOU WILL NEVER WANT TO LISTEN TO ANY OTHER. EVERY OTHER RECORDING OF KISMET PALES IN COMPARISON TO THIS ONE. AN ABSOLUTE 5 STAR RECORDING!!!! YOU MUST OWN THIS RECORDING."
Absolutely the best!

"Music fan from Houston said it all. I have loved this recording since it first came out on LP and am thrilled to at last find it on CD."
