5.0 out of 5 stars It's GREAT! 30 April 2012
By P. Hanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Saw the play many years ago, and my folks had the original cast album on vinyl. The CD was excellent quality and brought back a lot of memories. The play is still being produced (I think somewhere in Indiana) - I'd love to see it again!

3.0 out of 5 stars medocre score 9 Jan. 2007
By James A. Oakley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
a meiocre score but nice to have Barbara Cook's performance on record.

Best song is City Mouse, Country Mouse, otherwise a forgettabel score.

2.0 out of 5 stars So & So 5 April 2009
By Julio Lopez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Interesting subject, nice voices but dull melodies. There's not even one song you'll remember after you listen to this. I would recommend it to Broadway musical cd collectors and Barbara Cook fans only. The rest, please stay with West Side Story, Sound of Music or Cabaret...

4.0 out of 5 stars lovely vintage musical 26 Sept. 2003
By Byron Kolln - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
PLAIN AND FANCY is a lovely vintage Broadway musical that's now largely forgotten, sadly. It opened at the Mark Hellinger Theatre on January 7, 1955, and closed a mere twelve days before MY FAIR LADY moved into theatre, more than a year later. PLAIN AND FANCY ran a modest 461 performances.
The plot concerns the humorous clash between city people (Shirl Conway and Richard Derr) and the Amish folk they meet when they want to sell an old farm. The musical is best-remembered for the lovely ballad "Young and Foolish", and for being the leading-role debut of Barbara Cook (who would go on to further greatness in CANDIDE and THE MUSIC MAN).
The score is a delight, featuring the good character-piece "It's a Helluva Way to Run a Love Affair". Barbara Cook's 11 o'clock number "I'll Show Him" exhibits some questionable lyrics but is belted in her best style. The score was written by Albert Hague and Arnold B. Horwitt.
This new CD reissue from DRG includes liner notes from Barbara Cook, whilst the sound quality is very impressive from a cast album of this age. Highly-recommended for Broadway and Barbara Cook fans!
