So what Mack & Mabel the show was a flop - the music lives on. David Jacobs has always played it on BBC Radio 2, Torville & Dean skated perfect sixes to it on ice and Bernadette Peters continues to sing the haunting 'TIME HEALS EVERYTHING' in her concerts and makes everyone cry. Ok, a strange mix of song styles (comic Keystone Cops song "every time a cop falls down my spirits soar" and my favourite pick-me-up remedy, 'Tap Your Troubles Away' combines with big show tune numbers, but it works, and of course it is always a pleasure to hear Robert Preston sing. This is the tragic love story of Mack Sennett, director of silent films starring, amongst others, the Keystone Cops, and Mabel Normand, the most famous and celebrated silent movie actress of the time whom he discovered when she delivered a sandwich to the set of a film he was making. Why the show was never a success is a mystery - may be it was just too sad. I won't spoil the plot, but let me just say that I am unable to play the final track without plunging into tear-stained depression. Lovers of big West End and Broadway musicals will get a kick out of this CD, but read up on the story to get the full emotional hit.

This is one of the most under rated musicals of all, sure there are some songs that i would remove..But i think thats true of most musical these days. People didnt like it cause it didnt have a happy ending, EVEN BETTER!
I wont send roses is a classic but there are others in the album like BIG TIME..and Tap Your Troubles Away, that you dont hear enough off, this should be performed more.
BRAVO BRAVO

A much under rated Musical which sadly did not last for long. Any body who has not heard this soundtrack should try it. If you love music I am certain you will love this vibrant musical. I will not bore you with details, too many people do that. Just listen and you will be captivated.
I will be eternally grateful to David Jacobs (Yes the Journey Into Space David Jacobs) for introducing me to this, and so will you be.The recording & playback is first class & we can take that with us. Do yourself a favour. Try it!

A pity this show is over in the West End of London! But I can be thankful that it has been captured on this CD. The tunes are catchy and well sung by fine voices. I treaure Mac and Mable very much and am glad I bought it before it was lost forever.

I have always been a fan of Robert Preston since his early days when he was under contract to Paramount Studios and made movies with the likes of Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake, and was very surprised when in his later career he started to appear in stage shows and I started to collect recordings when ever they became available. This C.D. is a replacement for my L.P. copy and so I knew what to expect. I can however recommend it to all who loves the `Shows` and is a excellent contrast to a lot of the modern stage shows that seem to be all subjects of doom & gloom.

How can I compare original cast recordings of Mack & Mabel when there is only one? If you want it, here it is.

This music and this version was always on the radio and it is the perfect antidote to feeling low. You just cannot feel down having listened to Tap Your Troubles Away. The kitchen floor, which is tiled is perfect for tapping even if I am not.

I first saw a charity performance of this show at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in 1988 with Dennis Quilley, George Hearn, Georgia Brown and the great Tommy Tune, who with the chorus line girls had us standing up dancing to 'Dance Your Troubles Away' and it still makes my Wife & I dance round the room. I have been looking for this disc locally without success but saw it on Amazon & a few days later we were dancing again because it is terrific music & deserves better recognition, a great disc.
