"I want to strongly advise against anybody purchasing this shoddily mastered Box Office Recordings CD of "Song of Norway". The score is beautiful, but this CD makes all of the singing voices sound like mush! Decca Broadway (the REAL owners of the masters of the original recording) will be making a remastered CD of "Song of Norway" which is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2003. Please be patient and wait for the remaster. Don't even THINK about getting THIS CD!"
Song of Norway needs to be redone on Broadway

"What a beautiful score and magnificent singing. I've looked for a long time for this particular album and the remastered cd is as good as I remember the original and that is saying quite a lot. My particular cd seems to have a slight defect and I have informed amazon.com about that. But considering how reliable they have been in the past, I'm not concerned. If you liked the "Sound of Music" you should love this."
Historical, but so dated beautiful music

"I would like to give this Musical five stars, for purpose and effort; but for that alone. In 1945 the concept was aesthetically and politically relevant;the music of Grieg wondrous and the lyrics, well, pretrty campy. The cast,excellent. This CD is worth having for its historical position in American Musical Theatre. But, it is so dated.Kitty Carlisle is a gem, and lucky to hear in prime voice but sadly, she is not Ira Petina. This is a a beautful, naive, "nation-at- war" amd "lets remember Norway" musical"
