Rodgers and Hart Revisited, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
If anything, Ben Bagley's second collection of forgotten Rodgers and Hart songs is more impressive than his first. In his witty liner notes always a secondary treat of his albums, Bagley suggests that "this album deals with a most interesting and common sexual perversion among females: masochism." That's going a little far, although Bagley has uncovered several R&H numbers specifically treating the female condition, notably "A Baby's Best Friend" his mother and "A Lady Must Live." A superlative cast including Bobby Short, Blossom Dearie, Gloria DeHaven, and Dorothy Loudon performs music that spans R&H's entire career, starting with "Any Old Place With You," ...

a couple of fairly heavy indents along right edge of front insert from pressing against the case; jewel case is in excellent condition; disc is mint/near mint; because we care ... that your order arrives in the condition stated, we have additionally sealed the case in a padded plastic sleeve for added protection during shipment (that can easily be removed upon receipt of your order) Read more Show Less

If anything, Ben Bagley's second collection of forgotten Rodgers and Hart songs is more impressive than his first. In his witty liner notes always a secondary treat of his albums, Bagley suggests that "this album deals with a most interesting and common sexual perversion among females: masochism." That's going a little far, although Bagley has uncovered several R&H numbers specifically treating the female condition, notably "A Baby's Best Friend" his mother and "A Lady Must Live." A superlative cast including Bobby Short, Blossom Dearie, Gloria DeHaven, and Dorothy Loudon performs music that spans R&H's entire career, starting with "Any Old Place With You," their first published song together in 1919, and running all the way up to one of the songs from the revival of A Connecticut Yankee in 1943. Particularly enlightening is a medley of "Prayer" and "The Bad In Every Man," two earlier lyrics to the melody that became better known as "Blue Moon." But the album is full of revelations, from the witty "Disgustingly Rich" to the lovely romantic ballad "Softer Than a Kitten" and the songwriters' attack on the swing arrangements that both popularized and violated their music, "I Like to Recognize the Tune." This album is among the most impressive entries in the Revisited series. The LP version was released in 1972; the 1992 CD reissue added seven newly recorded songs, "Softer Than a Kitten" among them, boosting the album to a 71-minute running time.
