Product Description

Based on the 1911 play by Edward Knoblock, Kismet the musical opened on Broadway in December 1953. Fortunately, as it turned out, there was a newspaper strike at the time, and in order to generate publicity for the show the producers decided to undertake television advertising to promote it. This enabled the show to become a popular success, eventually running for some 583 performances. When the newspapers returned to the news-stands several weeks after the show had opened, not all of the reviews were favourable, but by then the show had months of bookings already banked!

This CD sounds as if it was copied from an old LP, the sound quality being very poor by modern standards. The cover is the original design but the disk is not of the original quality.
Most annoyingly there is a bad jump in track 6. (of all tracks it had to be 'Stranger in Paradise')
At the price I suppose I shouldn't be too disappointed, but I am now 80 years old and having sung in two stage productions of this show I wanted to bring back happy memories of the superb breath control of Doretta Morrow and the wonderful characterization by Alfred Drake to be heard on this disk..
I did not expect high quality reproduction from a disk that was originally cut in the early 1950's, but my original LP was broken and so replaced it by buying the CD from Amazon.
Don't worry Amazon you won't lose a customer because of this but I am not a happy old bunny!

Alfred Drake has never been surpassed as the ultimate Broadway show star and performer. And Doretta Morrow is a very under rated singer.

Brilliant with very clear diction beautifully orchestrated.Sound quality due to the age of the recording leaves something to be desired but it still comes across as a most spirited adaptation,with extremely enjoyable lyrics,of Borodin's music.

This CD is made from a vinyl LP complete with bumps and scratches. There are others available in the same price range so you would be well advised to look around and avoid this one.
