Babes in Arms [Studio Cast Recording] based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is a fine CD, based on a Masterworks LP of 1952 supervised by the legendary Goddard Lieberson. If you are familiar with the 1939 MGM movie with Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland, you'll find that many classic Rodgers and Hart songs were jettisoned. The movie has "Babes in Arms" and "Where or When"; here's what it DOESN'T have: "My Funny Valentine," "Johnny One Note," "The Lady is a Tramp," "Way out West" and others. Mary Martin and Jack Cassidy are in fine voice and the technological limitations of the 1952 origin LP do not matter much. A highly recommended treat for Broadway fans, Songbook admirers and as a gift! Note, though, that there's no companion booklet.
