CD Reviews

Political commentary from Kaufman/Gershwin
C. URen | Berkeley, CA USA | 12/10/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"According to the fascinating liner notes, this show flopped when it was first introduced on Broadway in 1927, because George S. Kaufman's script contained scathing anti-war commentary that hit too close to home just a few years after WWI. The show was rewritten and the controversial parts watered down for the more popular versions mounted on Broadway in 1930, and later by Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney in Hollywood. This disc re-creates the original version, with beautiful 20's orchestration that lacks the sappiness of, say, some 50's Broadway musical arrangements. The songs are both beautiful and clever, and the vocalists delightful. Highly recommended for Gershwin fans."
Gershwins Strike up the band

"I thought that this cd was priceless. it really brings back the old style of quality broadway. All ages can and will enjoy the upbeat tempo of certian songs and the slower songs that contain more depth to them. I would definatly reccomend this album to anyone of any age group. It is timeless!!"
This is what I call A REAL CLASSIC !

"An absolute MUST for any Broadway musical fan.It contains songs and melodies which are symbolic in the History of Broadway. Besides, this version is a real delight both because of the presentation (it's a double album) and the recording quality. Don't think it twice and get it. You certainly won't regret it."
