Leonard Warren brings all his talent, feeling, and respect to these old favorites, and freshens them with his manly voice and acting ability. The orchestra playing is colorful. Tracks 1-8 are with orchestra and chorus conducted by Morris Levine. Tracks 9-23 are with the RCA Victor Orchestra conducted by Frank Black. The program comprises:

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost 76 minutes of wonderful songs 28 Feb 2014
By Michael Caracappa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Leonard Warren is at his best in the sea shanties and fine in the other songs. The orchestral arrangements in the sea shanties are delightfully witty. For the Kipling songs and Ol' Man River, I prefer Peter Dawson; Home on the Range, John Charles Thomas; the sentimental Irish songs, John McCormack.

In the song America the Beautiful, Warren annoyingly mispronounces "America" and "beautiful" as a-MEH-ree-kuh and BYOO-tee-full, reminiscent of Arnold Schwarzenegger's CAL-ee-FORN-yuh.

In the Kipling songs, Warren pronounces the missing aitches and often other consonants that Kipling purposely omitted. In "Boots" the line "I 'ave marched six weeks in 'Ell" is sung "I have marched six week in Hell." Another line: "the chronic sight of 'em" is sung "the chronic sight of them." However, "movin' up and down again" is sung as written, with Warren dropping the final "g" in "movin'" and in the other words ending in "ing."

The songs are tastefully arranged, with full orchestral accompaniment. The booklet omits the song lyrics, but Warren's diction is excellent -- as is the chorus's -- so few words were lost in the hearing.
