Overview

For this collection, RCA has scoured its vaults for Broadway novelty songs, comic numbers frequently performed by the supporting players in shows that provide a change of pace and some laughs. Songs like "I Cain't Say No," from Oklahoma!, and "Arthur In The Afternoon," from The Act, show that being risque is not a problem, but just as often these songs are just odd: what else to say about the celebratory "Lizzie Borden," from New Faces Of 1952? That song, from a revue, had no real context in a show, and some of these songs are actually ringers, such as Fats Waller's "Your Feet's Too Big" from Ain't Misbehavin' and the "Caribbean Plaid" medley from Forever Plaid, material not actually written for Broadway. This is an episodic album, to be sure, but you won't get through it without laughing a few times.
