Product Description

Coward early on adopted a suave persona which was perfectly tailored to his material. In 1955 he wowed audiences at the Desert Inn, Las Vegas, and the following year it was the turn of New York to be taken by storm. These recordings have been repackaged in this 2-CD set, the first of which contains also a selection of 78 recordings, and a medley recorded in London in 1951. As if that were not enough, especially at this price, there's a 1952 track, and the second CD also contains nine recordings from 1954. Over 145 minutes of The Master performing his own works.

Format: Audio CD
Only three popular songwriters consistently both composed the song and wrote the lyrics. Two were Irving Berlin and Cole Porter, which puts Noel Coward in the most august company. But whereas Berlin and Porter were indifferent performers, Coward early on adopted a suave persona which was perfectly tailored to his material. In 1955 he wowed audiences at the Desert Inn, Las Vegas, and the following year it was the turn of New York to be taken by storm. These recordings have been repackaged in this 2-CD set, the first of which contains also a selection of 78 recordings, and a medley recorded in London in 1951. As if that were not enough, especially at this price, there's a 1952 track, and the second CD also contains nine recordings from 1954. Over 145 minutes of The Master performing his own work makes this an absolute bargain,.

Frosted glass and chrome! Noel Coward never fails to put me into an art deco mood. Just listen to "Room With A View" and you'll see what I mean. This is a truly indispensable 2-cd set. I couldn't stop playing it for days. What a great deal for [...] . We get Mr Coward's 2 American lps (Noel Coward In Las Vegas & Noel Coward in New York), a selection of his British 78s including a few wartime tunes including the wonderful "Let's Not Be Beastly To The Germans".. a tune which always reminds me of a certain Fawlty Towers episode and a favorite of Winston Churchill (who apparently got the joke although many others were very put out by this song). We also get a 1951 performance from London's Cafe de Paris consisting of 2 medleys plus "There Are Bad Times Around The Corner" from 1952. There is also a rare 10" lp from 1954 consisting of 9 songs.

Noel Coward was having tax problems at home in the mid 50s so he accepted Wilbur Clarke's offer to play the Desert Inn in Las Vegas. This resulted in a magnificent live album. Noel was a big hit and even Frank Sinatra chartered a plane to fly in his celebrity pals from Hollywood to check out Mr Coward's show and Frankie loved it. You will too.. especially Noel's show-stopping, very naughty version of Cole Porter's "Let's Do It". Buy it now!

This is an absolute must for all Coward fans, containing all the best known and loved classics. My iPod was underused until I bought this, now it's on all the time! It's especially good if you're musical, also have the sheet music and are learning to play the tunes on the ukulele, as I am! The songs are a winner at the more discerning parties - who could fail to love 'Don't let's be Beastly to the Germans', and the eponymous 'Mad Dogs and Englishmen', sung as it should be by the master himself? Buy it now!

This albumis very slightly misleading as one of the discs is Noel Coward live at Las Vegas which I already have! not too bad because a good friend benefited from my original one! This is a must for coward fans

What a genius Noel Coward was. So many of his observations are as apposite today as they were when they were first written. Have laughed aloud whilst listening in the car - received some very strange looks from other road users!

Over thirty years ago we had a Noel Coward cassette, but it's no longer with us, so we bought this (cheaply) to revive memories. It's good, light music, sung pleasantly. Hardly high brow but enjoyable.

By C. FULLER TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 July 2009
Format: Audio CD
This vintage collection brought together for the Hallmark label has 65 minutes of Noel Coward performing many of his most well known compositions. The sound quality is very clear throughout and the original sources sound to have been restored and show little sign of their age. The medleys are probably the most effective bringing together the essence of Noel Coward and the era during which they were most popular.
