Overview

Many of today's baby-boomer parents probably grew up singing songs from Broadway musicals in the car with their own moms and dads, and you can introduce your kids to the wondrous music of Broadway's golden era and have your own auto-trip sing-alongs by cranking up this lavish compilation. It contains some of the most upbeat tunes the genre has to offer, which not coincidentally makes them the kid-friendliest. Of course, the set includes Mary Martin as Peter Pan, proclaiming, "I've Gotta Crow," Robert Preston heartily counting off the "Seventy-Six Trombones" from The Music Man, and Juanita Hall tossing off the lilting "Happy Talk" from South Pacific. There's only one ballad featured: Carnival's winsome, waltz-time "Love Makes the World Go Round," sung by Anna Maria Alberghetti, Jerry Orbach, and Pierre Olaf. There's nothing terribly new, save for "Any Dream Will Do" from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat, but from the swaggering "Heart," the centerpiece of Damn Yankees, to Mame's sprightly "We Need a Little Christmas" (performed by Angela Lansbury), to Gordon McRae and Shirley Jones's sweetly flirtatious "Surrey with the Fringe on Top" from Oklahoma, there's a wealth of wonderful songs.
