The neighboring review focuses on sound and gives an unfortunate grade to the recording; but what about the music & lyrics? First of all, my ears do not find anything wrong with the sound; everything can be heard clearly and appreciated.
I discovered the LP in the 70s and fell in love with it. I was ecstatic to find it was finally released on CD.
Listening to this right now (after at least two decades) brings to mind why I liked the score so much and the quality of all Bricusse/Newley songs. Personally, having explored other of their shows, I think this is their best; all songs are superb.
In this release you will read decent notes, hear a clear and wonderful orchestration, the wit of many of the lyrics and the most tuneful multi-style Bricusse score, start to finish. I felt a bit of Bacharach, another of Sondheim(!), perhaps some Herman; a Jewish song here, an anthem there, an "Al Jolson-tune" from dixie. It is masterful Broadway music: Bricusse/Newley at their best no matter how unsuccessful the show might have been. Even Newley's mannerisms (uahhhhh....) can be forgiven.
I paid top price for this, and I do not regret it one bit.
