Vintage Marx Brothers

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Given the fact that Marx Brothers CDs are very rare, this CD containing music and dialog from A NIGHT AT THE OPERA, ANIMAL CRACKERS, AT THE CIRCUS, and ROOM SERVICE is a real treat. Since these movies were made over 60 years ago, one should not expect the greatest audio quality..but who cares? It's the material and nostalgia factor of these recordings that really matters. Contained in this collection are classics like: Cosi Cosa; Hooray For Captain Spaulding; and Lydia The Tattooed Lady, to mention a few of the many gems. My only small gripe is that A NIGHT AT THE OPERA was short-changed omitting the classic moments from IL Trovatore, including the hilarious "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" that was inserted in the overture. However, this is a small matter considering the many virtues of the CD. Available are additional soundtracks of other classic Marx Brothers movies, all worth investigating as well. Recommended."
