CD Reviews

First recording of show pleasant but no stunner
A. Andersen | Bellows Falls, VT USA | 08/19/1998
(3 out of 5 stars)

"After Columbia's studio cast recording of PAL JOEY proved a smash hit, record producer Goddard Lieberson produced a number of other Rodgers and Hart shows with studio casts - Mary Martin in BABES IN ARMS, ON YOUR TOES and this first recording of their best score THE BOYS FROM SYRACUSE. Jack Cassidy and Portia Nelson are acceptable but the numbers are recorded with less pizzazz than the 1965 Off Broadway revival and with less artistry than the 1997 reincarnation. Either of these is the first choice. The mono sound does not hamper this recording however - another Columbia marvel in sound recording. Portia Nelson's wobble may annoy (as did Hanley's in the 1965 revival)but all in all the recording is an acceptable if less than first choice."
Mad for Jack Cassidy
A. Andersen | 01/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jack Cassidy was to me what Frank Sinatra was to others of my generation. I simply swoon when I hear him and this recording has always been one of my favorites."
A. Andersen | 09/09/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Perhaps it is simply nostalgia (my parents had this record when I was young -- until I absconded with it!), but this recording is by far my preference of the three available. I love the quality of the voices which do not sound like modern singers at all -- very charactery and very fun."
