Clive Davis's Arista label enters the burgeoning show music compilation sweepstakes with Ultimate Broadway, a 40-song, double-disc grab bag culled from the last six decades of magical musical memories. Rather than pursue a purely legitimate theatrical pedigree, Ultimate Broadway mixes cast album classics like Alfred Drake's stirring "Oklahoma!," Judy

This collection of Broadway songs is superb! I especially enjoy ''Memory'', ''The Music of the Night'', and ''Mame.'' I would highly recommend this CD Collection to anyone!

Packed with memorable showstoppers, including the new-to-me singing talent of Judy Holliday (on ''The Party's Over''), and superb John Cullum, the actor who played Dr Greene's dad on ''ER'', bringing down the house with ''On A Clear Day...''. Glaring omissions like a Diahann Carroll number from ''No Strings'' and the Bea Arthur/Angela Lansbury duet ''Bosom Buddies'' from ''Mame'' drop this down a notch for me. But I definitely recommend it. So much glorious singing!

A Friend lent me this CD and i was amazed at how they got all of the great songs like "Seasons of Love" and "All That Jazz" onto one great CD.

I was excited the first time that I listened to it but it ended up being a let down. I feel like they came close on a lot of songs but really missed on some of the songs that would make it 'Ultimate.' Definitely not one of my favorites. It ended up being ok. I wished I had bought something else.

I love the entire album except for this one track......yuck! Glad I have a MPEG player so I can delete it, but it would have been nice to have a version recorded at least somewhat similar to the original.

There were a lot of really obscure songs on there. Like why put "One" on there instead of "What I did for love" and "Rich Man" instead of "Tradition". There were alot of things like that. Also the Aretha Franklin version of Les Mis took it down a whole rating.
