I must disagree

"I don't know where Lawrance M. Bernabo is coming from, but to say "there just are not as many great songs by this duo" as by other composers is absurd. Rodgers & Hart songs are consistenly musically superior to Rodgers & Hammerstein songs due simply to the fact the Hammerstein insisted on writing the lyrics first, thereby locking Rodgers into conventional tempi and limiting his creative options. I would put Rodgers & Hart on an equal plane with the Gershwins and Porter, and certainly with Berlin. Rodgers melodies shine on this album, and I highly recommend it."

"Like most collections of this type,this disc is not satisfying as a whole,but contains some gems if you are a RODGERS and HART fan.GORDON MACRAE's version of MY FUNNY VALENTINE is marvelous,and so is MARGARET WHITING's THOU SWELL,PEGGY LEE's THE LADY IS A TRAMP and DEAN MARTIN's IT'S EASY TO REMEMBER to name a few.Half of the cd is quite good.On the bad side are the vocal groups's version of songs that simply does not belong in the collection.It's a pity that they did not include FRANK SINATRA who was a CAPITOL singer from 1953 to 1962.So if you are a die hard fan of DICK and LARRY,it is worth buying especially at this low price."
Good Surprise

"I expected a CD with old interpretations and/or historic ones. To my surprise, these old recordings are quite modern and good to the ears. I recommend this disk for the good memories it brings."
