"Anytime I'm looking for something new or with a little variety, I always check out the Excelsior (Madacy) stuff first. Sometime is very good and sometimes you're suprised anyone would publish such trash. This album is a compilation of songs from many different Excelsior albums. To help you understand what I mean I'll talk abou the songs. Big Spender is as it should be, full of life and a little trashy. However Consider Yourself did not leave me pleased, I had purchased the Excelsior Oliver album before and returned it because of several reasons inclusing this song. The Artful Dodger has a hard time singing for two reasons the accent and the song is out of his range. Maybe This Time is a good song but the singer loses the tension that the song contains by keeping her emotions pretty much consistent through out the song. You are the one that I want is good (However it is the British Version of an American musical.) America, though very good is the movie version not the stage version. Send in the Clowns is absolutely marvelous! Bill is very nice but if you know the story you will perhaps be a little disturbed with the singer and her interp. Memory, I Could Write a Book, and They Ain't Got What We Got are all pretty good in general. The liner notes are a bit misleading as they give incorrect facts and they aren't in total agreement with the songs actually on the album. So I'm picky you say? Well I just want you to have a good idea of what you're buying."
