    Show Boart Original Cast

    This CD is an excellent addition to any Broadway collection. The original songs are sung with original words, which at times, are surprising to hear now. They are the words from that era in our country at that time. "Make Believe", Lovin'That Man and Ole Man River are fantastic.
