Naxos' useful coupling features two conductors of note, has considerable historical interest and fleshes out the rather skimpy 78rpm side lengths of the 1946 revival recording. Indeed, the elderly 1932 studio excerpts sound way more convincing in this context: Mr. Robeson's truly magisterial Joe (and Joe "gets down" on the great patter song "Ah still suits me," one of Kern's finest inspirations), Miss Helen Morgan defining torch singing once and for all (her wistful phrasing will break your heart) and--quite surprisingly--James Melton as a tenderly lyrical, rolled Rs and all, Ravenal. Melton is particularly sensitive to Kern's melodic lines, conveying them without histrionics or personal idiosyncracies. The conductor of the 1932 tracks is no less than Victor Young (check out the weird tuba solos), and on Robeson's standalone 1936 recording of the patter song his duet partner is Tess Gardella, who originated the role of Queenie in 1927.

Imagine, the mighty score was only a youthful 19 years of age in the immediate postwar (and post-OKLAHOMA!) era. The successful second revival--with its famously expurgated lyrics, plus Hammerstein's "hell" in the new song--is chiefly of interest because of Jan Clayton (1917-83) and her one new song. Miss Clayton is remembered for originating the role of Julie Jordan on Broadway (in what was clearly John Raitt's show). She evidently bolted CAROUSEL, seizing the opportunity to play Magnolia and to introduce Jerome Kern's very last theatre song, the jaunty "Nobody else but me" shoring up the problematic Act III. She certainly sounds exactly right, ala mode as Magnolia, and Kenneth Spencer sings a resonant true basso Joe (without Robeson's charisma), with band singer Carol Bruce, not yet 30, a very mature, world-weary Julie. The very capable conductor is Edwin McArthur, more familiar as Mme Kirsten Flagstad's platform accompanist.
