CD Reviews

More than 100 numbers from MGM films, including outtakes
05/16/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Six, count 'em, six CDs packaged in a handsome box with a beautifully illustrated guide to the MGM musical. Listen to more than 100 numbers from dozens of films going all the way back to the 1929 Broadway Melody and culminating with Vincente Minnelli's masterpiece, 1958's Gigi. In between there's Judy Garland singing music from her films and numbers deleted from release prints. Lena Horne, June Allyson, Tony Martin, Howard Keel, Jane Powell, Kathryn Grayson, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Esther Williams, Mickey Rooney, Jimmy Durante, Red Skelton and more. Rhino and Turner Classic Films have painstakingly restored most cuts to top form, even remixed classics for true stereo. There's no other set like this and there never will be."
Words cannot explain my happiness!

"I'm driving my parents nuts blasting this CD set and belting out the songs. This is for anyone who likes showtunes, musicals, classic/old movies, or anything of the sort. Great, soooooo great."
"More stars than there are in the heavens"

"First I need to correct one of the comments made by another reviewer about skimping on the Astaire-Rogers musicals. The reason is simple. This is a collection of songs from MGM films, and the A-R films were done at RKO. They did star together in one MGM film 10 years after their last RKO film together and this one, THE BARKLEYS OF BROADWAY, is indeed represented.This set takes many of the songs which were represented by shortened versions in the three THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT films and gives us the full soundtrack versions and then some. Disc number six features numbers that were considered for the anthology films, but dropped due to time constraints and other issues. In all this is a fabulous collection of music from the best studio of it's era. All of the great MGM stars are on these discs, and the enclosed book gives you a detailed account of each film represented. I especially enjoy the reproductions of the original poster art which was used to advertise the films. In regards to the music, the stars, the poster art......we truly will never see the likes of this again."
