HASH(0x94bc02d0) out of 5 stars divine Diahann Carroll with Richard Kiley... 29 Jun. 2004
By Byron Kolln - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
NO STRINGS was Richard Rodgers' first big project following the death of Oscar Hammerstein II. The score is youthful, peppy, romantic and quite modern for the time, and indeed the orchestra featured no strings (and the title also referred to the relationship enjoyed by the 2 main characters). Rodgers was inspired to cast the beautiful Diahann Carroll as the model, breaking down the hackneyed and stereotypical depiction of African Americans onstage (in shows like SARATOGA, PORGY AND BESS and JAMAICA). He felt having Carroll as the stunning centerpiece in the show would add the glitter and gloss needed in this very modern musical.

Carroll was an adept musical theater veteran, who all but stole the show from star Pearl Bailey in the 1956 Broadway musical HOUSE OF FLOWERS. Joining Carroll was Richard Kiley, riding on the success of his acclaimed performance in REDHEAD. In fact, NO STRINGS made history for featuring the first depiction of an inter-racial romance in a Broadway musical (not counting the subplot of Joe Cable and Liat in SOUTH PACIFIC). As mentioned above, the score for NO STRINGS is a real delight, featuring the classic "Sweetest Sounds" as well as several juicy numbers for Carroll and Kiley, both solo and duet. DRG have done a lovely job in reissuing this often-requested cast album. And, as of this reviews's writing, the London cast album is being slated for release by Must Close Saturday Records.

HASH(0x94bc0528) out of 5 stars Kudos to DRG for reissuing NO STRINGS! 29 Jun. 2004
By J. T Waldmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This has been one of my favorite show recordings since purchasing the Capitol LP in the early 60s. Reading the liner notes as I listened to the album, I vividly imagined the show. The orchestra on stage with the actors; no strings not only in the orchestra but also between the two lovers. ("If marriage comes, we'll let it come as one of those perfect things with no strings at all.") From the liner notes of the Broadway Angel CD: "The show began with Carroll, spotlit in a glamorous white gown, singing what would become the score's hit song THE SWEETEST SOUNDS. Across the stage, her lover-to-be -- unknown to her at the moment -- picked up the song, accompanied by a clarinet." Such a simple but elegant concept! What great songs! What singing, especially from the leads, the marvelous Miss Diahann Carroll and Mr.Richard Kiley! (Three years later Mr. Kiley would become THE MAN OF LA MANCHA.) I was fortunate to catch the national tour with Howard Keel and Barbara McNair, both excellent in their roles. Seeing it on stage was even more magical that the show I had seen many times in my mind -- truly an "enchanted evening." When the CD was released in 1993, I grabbed it up. And it was a good thing I did, because it wasn't long before Capitol/Angel dropped it, along with a number of wonderful original cast recordings. But now I rejoice because DRG has revived it for a new audience. Buy it -- now!!!

HASH(0x94bc0834) out of 5 stars Richard Rodgers' best post-Hammerstein score. 14 Sept. 2006
By Mark Andrew Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Despite some weak lyrics here and there, the score is the finest of Rodgers in the post-Hammerstein era.

Capitol did a first-rate production of the original cast album and it remained in print for more than 20 years. Now, it has been brought back by DRG in a crisp sounding transfer. You'll have little trouble following the story as most of the songs are laundrey lists that give examples to support their titles, but the best tracks are provide enjoyable listening experiences: "The Sweetest Sounds" is the best known number (it was later interpolated into the DIsney remake of CINDERELLA where surprisingly it worked quite well!) Other gems: Maine, Look No Further, Nobody Told Me and the title song. In fact there is not a song here that one would label a dog.

DRG's reissue lacks the extensive bachground notes that Broadway Angel had in their 1993 CD edition. But the recording was and still is one well worth owning.

HASH(0x94bc0a98) out of 5 stars 43 years later It's still Wonderfull! 29 April 2005
By Jay D. Morgenthal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard the LP in at age 11 in 1962 at a freinds home but my parents did not have it. So after all these years I discovered Amazon had it on CD and I grabbed it ! and WOW! All those great songs, those wonderfull lyrics came back to me! It has that wonderfull bounce that all the great Rodgers songs have but with a modern (for 1962) touch . The fact that I could remember music I have not heard in over 40 years shows how good this was and still is. Anyone who was lucky enough to see the orig. Broadway production and hear this music live must have come out of that theatre dancing in the street!

HASH(0x94bc0cd8) out of 5 stars Rodgers can still write tunes without Hart or Hammerstein 18 Jun. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have never seen this show, but remember taking the album out from my local library when I was a teenager (okay I am dating myself). The songs on this album are all splendid. Perhaps Rodgers faltered in his musical writing abilities later on in his career, but not with this album (written a few years after The Sound of Music). If you care about musical theater-you MUST buy this CD. The voices are splendid and "The Sweetest Sounds" ranks with RR's top tune melodies.
