Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
What songs! What a cast! What an essential recording! My Fair Lady was the 1950s Broadway hit that all other contemporary productions were measured against, and many of the reasons why can be found here.

This new edition of the original Broadway cast recording benefits from remastered sound and the addition of some informative contributions by Frederic Loewe and Rex Harrison. My Fair Lady is a recording that no one with any feeling for splendid songcraft and the art of theatrical singing should be without.
Billboard
Remastered with astonishing clarity, this definitive recording of My Fair Lady remains a romantic stunner.
