Overview

Classic Julie: Classic Broadway

Julie Andrews' recorded legacy happily experienced a September renaissance in the mid-'90s, just a few years before unsuccessful throat surgery stilled the legendary voice of one of musical theater's most-beloved stars. Classic Julie Classic Broadway collects together the best of these valedictory performances, recorded for Philips Classics. Andrews' trademark purity of tone, impeccable diction and stunning range and control are gorgeously intact on such perfect-for-Julie gems as "On A Clear Day," "My Funny Valentine," "If I Loved You," "Bewitched" and "Hello, Young Lovers." Andrews' final Broadway opus, Victor/Victoria is well represented with the ballads "Living In The Shadows" and "Crazy World." The highlights, though, are two extended medleys from Andrews' own career-defining megahits, Lerner and Loewe's My Fair Lady and Camelot, that display the singing actress in superb form. Classic Julie is a fitting, and moving, tribute to a lady whose taste and excellence will continue to be an inspiration to generations of film and theater fans. --David Cohen

I am a huge fan of Julie Andrews. I love her singing and acting. I bought this CD last week, I was very disappionted, The direction is pretty bad, and all of the songs have been changed, for the worse. Below are a few of her CD's that I enjoyed much more.
