    This is an awesome cd because it represents the first collaboration of Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick. (audiophiles need NO further comment) The score ranges from great Razz-a-ma-Tazz "Gentleman Jimmy" to amazingly heartfelt "'Til Tomorrow" from tender and tugging "Home Again" to laughingly, magically biting "Politics and Poker". It was an auspicious musical debut, and the score remains one of the most tuneful, sweet, memorable music and lyrics cds from Broadway...and it is more than 50 years old!!!
