5.0 out of 5 stars A joy for good music lovers 6 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the surprise of the year. The double C.D. is magnificent. I have played it through 4 times and never tire of the songs or the performers. This a jewel to be in anyone's collection.
Don't miss it before it goes out of print, like these kinds of cds usually do.
They wrote songs then.............wait till you hear THEY DIDN'T BELIEVE ME.

Don't worry about trying to follow the plot (described in the notes) that has been added to this wonderful collection of Kern songs to make it into a theatrical evening - just sit back and enjoy! It mixes some rarely heard or even never-before heard numbers with a handful of standards, artfully arranged - by David Loud - for six top Broadway performers, including the sublime Rebecca Luker. There is an intimate feel to the recording that lets the words and melodies shine through and doesn't drown them with overly lush orchestration. Especially magical are the tracks where two songs have been effectively intertwined to great musicl effect. I defy anyone not to be moved by Till the Clouds Roll By coupled with Look for the Silver Lining, and Heaven in my Arms/ Dancing Time. Fabulous - I'll be playing it again and again. Treat yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Kern's genius... 17 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A really brilliant collection of less known songs from one of the real masters of american songs. Lovely arrangements, expert voices.
And some tunes really catchy . "I've taken such a fancy to you" , in Mr. Philip Chaffin's version is a real gem.( Surprisingly , the only slightly irritating thing is the booklet , written by Stephen Sondheim, pompous and didactic.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Here is where the good songs went! 14 Dec 2012
By Eriknorcal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Wikipedia defines "jukebox musical" as a stage or film musical that uses previously released popular songs as its musical score". I've never liked them very much, particularly when a plot is created and songs written as pop songs or songs from other shows are awkwardly shoehorned in. I'm beginning to realize, though, that I particularly don't like jukebox musicals when I don't like the songs. I'm not a rock and roll kind of guy, so shows like ROCK OF AGES or MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET are automatically on my stay-at-home list. On the other hand, I've always liked ABBA songs, do so I don't mind MAMMA MIA. Also, I've really enjoyed productions of MARRY ME A LITTLE, a compilation of Sondheim trunk songs, and AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' introduced me to the music of Fats Waller.

This is all a prelude to comments on PS Classics' THE LAND WHERE THE GOOD SONGS GO, a new 2-CD recording of songs with music by Jerome Kern and lyrics by several of his collaborators. The booklet includes a synopsis of the plot into which the songs fit. Thus it really is a form of jukebox musical. I officially don't care! I love the songs of Jerome Kern - I guess "I'm Old Fashioned". The show includes a few standards, including "All the Things You Are", "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes", and "Long Ago and Far Away". The classic "Bill" is here, though in its pre-SHOW BOAT form with only the P.G. Wodehouse lyrics. I could single out some individual songs - the medleys of "In the Heart of the Dark" and "Just Let Me Look at You"; "Till the Clouds Roll By" and "Look for the Silver Lining"; songs new to me, particularly comic songs like " Ain't it Funny What a Difference a Few Drinks Make", "Bill's a Liar", and "Never Marry a Girl with Cold Feet". Even when some of them have been re-arranged, I just don't mind. The performances are great. I have to mention all the singers - Kate Baldwin, Heidi Blickenstaff, Rebecca Luker, Philip Chaffin, Graham Rowatt, Matthew Scott, plus musical direction and arrangements by David Loud, with a small ensemble of 8. If you like the music of Jerome Kern, I recommend this highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful unearthed Kern songs (with a few of the standards) in bright new arrangements with super cast. 7 Jan 2013
By Steven I. Ramm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
PS Records - a small (but high quality) independent label has been releasing wonderful albums of "show music" - both Broadway and off- for many years. Under the direction of record producer Tommy Krasker and his partner, singer Philip Chaffin, I've discovered show that came and went before a "cast album" was recorded as well as a few shows that were recorded before any physical production was staged. They get the best arrangers and the best singers (some , like Rebecca Luker and Chaffin himself) are well known in the theater world but I find new ones each time I hear a PS album.

This 2-CD is a tribute to the music of Jerome Kern and contains his best known songs ("The Last Time I Saw Paris:, "A Fine Romance" but quite a few which appeared in obscure "revues" (like "The Caberet Girl", which produced the song "Dancing Time"). And that is where I found the most enjoyment. The Kern song "Bill" is here. We know that title from Show Boat. But the version here is the one Kern wrote with P.G. Wodehouse for for the show "Oh Lady! Lady!" a few years bore "Show Boat". And the songs are cleverly sequenced so that "Bill" is followed by "Bill's A Liar" composed 10 years before the Kern Wodehouse collaboration. In all there are more than 30 songs on the 29 tracks (a few are medleys).
Producer Krasker decided that the "revue" needed a plot and so the songs are arranged to tell the story of three couples who fall in and out of love. The enclosed 12 page booklet provides a one-page synopsis but it didn't make a lot of sense to me and, after the first listening, I ignored that text and just enjoyed the Kern gems - especially the ones new to me. I'm not sure if there are plans to stage the show, utilizing the plot, but that may be in the works.
Let me add the titles of a few more of those unearthed songs so you can see how clever the are: "Ain't it Funny What a Difference a Few Drinks Make?"; "Nesting Time in Flatbush" and the cautionary tale, "Never Marry A Woman With Cold Feet". (told ya!)

This album belongs in any serious Musical Theater collection and right alongside the "Unsung Musical" compilations that Bruce Kimmel used to produce for the Varese Sarabande label in the 1980s.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delight and a Lucky Find 20 Dec 2012
By Lawrence L. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This one is great if you like Broadway, show tunes or what is referred to as the Great American Songbook. It is even better than I had anticipated. I had seen Rebecca Luker in Sound of Music and it was her name on the album that caught my eye. The entire cast is wonderful. Am thankful that quality music is still being recorded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous recording of Jerome Kern tunes 1 Jan 2013
By Broadway Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful recording of many of the show songs of Jerome Kern, some familiar but many unfamiliar, at least to me. All of the songs are enchanting and the orchestrations are terrific. The voices are uniformly splendid. I highly recommend this CD for all Broadway original cast fans.
