A CRIME that it was never captured on VIDEO
BVSC fanatic | United States | 01/14/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this show live on Broadway when it first came out in 1978. During the two years that I lived in New York City, this was the only show that I ever paid full price to see TWICE, and it was worth every penny. That it was never captured on video is the greatest crime of the 20th century. Nell Carter's performance (then in her late 20's)was nothing short of sensational, and now she's gone.

Fats Waller's music is magnificent in its own right. He's one of the greatest musical genuises of the swing era. But this performance brought it to life as it had not been seen or heard in decades, and with all the boldness and cheeky humour that was Waller's trademark.

I have a huge collection of Fats Waller's music, and this was the musical that first turned me on to it nearly 30 years ago.

And for that, I'm eternally grateful.

Let it turn YOU on too."
...May I have this dance, madame..what are YOU doin' here..

""Ain't Misbehavin'" is a crowd pleasing, good times rollin' winner. This recording of the original cast (Nell Carter, Andre Desheilds, Ken Page, Charmaine Woodard and Armelia McQueen) is great in that the cast chemistry seeps through very MUST see this cast in the 80's-ish performance video--I think it may be out there. The show is a no-holds barred, non-stop entertainment, neo-vaudevillian romp thru the tunes of Fats Waller... each song tells a story and assumes a scene...There are moments in "The Viper's Drag/Reefer Song", and "Lounging at the Waldorf" which are best enjoyed "seen", but this CD captures these moments well. "Black and Blue" is simply sublime, the harmonies just melts ya....this is one of the better cast recordings of a Broadway play, period. It is one you must not miss!"
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!

"I too saw the televised musical of this in the 1980's, and still have it on VHS, and I have been in love with this musical ever since. The cast creates a magic that I don't think can ever be duplicated now that some of them are no longer with us. I have the album and the CD (can you tell I'm a fan!), and recently uploaded the CD to my new MP3 player. If you buy this, you will not be disappointed."
