5.0 out of 5 stars I Can't Stop Listening to "I Can't Get Started." 1 July 2016
By Alan B. Jonas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
No wonder the Follies were such big hits. The one song "I Can't Get Started" with lyrics by Ira Gershwin and music by Vernon Duke is a standout. Gershwin and Duke composed the other songs, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Recording of the Year 19 Jan. 2002
By Michael A. Willhoite - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This has been a banner year for show recordings. When you have a breathtaking show like Urinetown, AND The Producers available, getting a legendary old show on disc is almost too much to hope for. This brilliant recording, with the miraculous disc of Through the Years, is enough to richly satisfy the craving of any musical theatre buff. I've played it over and over again, and it remains fresh. Vernon Duke has clearly been undervalued for years and he's clearly ripe for rediscovery. If anyone who listens to this new album is as blown away by it as I am, I urge you to get Dawn Upshaw's Duke album. She will have you gasping with admiration.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ziegfeld follies of 1936 18 Sept. 2013
By Rex F. Shields - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Some great old songs from the 1930's here and so there should as one of the song writers is a Gershwin. A good recreation of the 1930's tunes. Well done to City Centre Encores "Great Americam Musicals in Concert" for putting on this show

This is one of the greatest CDs I own. The songs, performances and production values are all excellent. I wish they would re-release this because my copy has a scratch.

5.0 out of 5 stars GodDAMN this is good! 14 Jan. 2002
By John McWhorter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Whoa! The Encores/old Broadway restoration crowd have outdone themselves on this one. I agree with one reviewer who designates this one the best of the Encores series along with THE BOYS FROM SYRACUSE. This is just spun gold from beginning to end.
Revues like this were once as integral to a theatergoer's experience in this era as the book shows that we know better. But the revues are today hard to perform because the sketches were topical; they were rarely made into films; and they were already in eclipse when cast albums started being made. Thus we largely just read about them and see them illustrated with static photos; buffs know the titles as the sources of the songs that outlasted them, but that's about it.
Here at last is a reconstruction of what one of the best of these actually sounded like. The archaeological work here is absolutely stunning -- to imagine that these people turned thousands of yellowing sheets of paper into this vibrant, funny, gorgeous recording!
Sure, some of it cannot come off as electrically to us as it did to people 65 years ago. In any revue like this, much of the music was written just to illustrate pretty costumes and sets and usher in a dance number, and we can't see that part of it today. But even songs like this ("Sentimental Weather", "An Island in the West Indies", etc.) are thoroughly pleasant in themselves, and the orchestrations (and players on this recording) are luscious. I can never quite believe that orchestrators of this era bothered to put so much into accompaniments that no one was paying attention to in the theatre. Throughout this recording it's as if they were writing in preparation for people like us hearing them recorded up close on CDs.
But the comedy numbers are still pretty darned funny, and Mary Testa rises to to the tricky job of rendering numbers written specifically for Fanny Brice in ways that respect her without imitating her, right down to pronouncing "fancy" as "fency" ("Yiddish" accent) at times in "Fancy Fancy You". The other performers rise perfectly to the occasion: Howard McGillin's earnest tenor "emcee" (right down to the very slightly lavender air that such figures in this era tended to have); the dependable Christine Ebersole; Peter Scolari's solid Bob Hope substitute (he actually makes "I Can't Get Started" fresh, no mean feat for this warhorse despite Ira Gershwin's brilliant lyrics); and Stephanie Pope's solid plangency especially in "5 AM", making a potentially rather forced lyric sound urgent.
And "The Gazooka", a mockish dance number, is massively infectious; as the liner notes promise, the dance music to "Modernistic Moe" sounds like the soundtrack to a Looney Tune; "5 AM" is a deeply beautiful work in the "Broadway Baby goes home alone" genre so popular in the 30s and is followed by sumptuous ballet music. Overall, this recording just overflows with gems and marvels.
And the weirdness of Vernon Duke even helps put it over the top. Like Kurt Weill, Duke was a European immigrant writing Broadway pop style as a "second language", and as such, his melodies do not always get you on first hearing. Perhaps the only song on this recording that only a corpse could not cotton to immediately is "Red Letter Day". But then listen again and you start to realize how deft and solid the tunes are. Which only adds to the richness of the recording -- often songs that get you immediately get old fast. With this CD, like wine, you might have to let it "breathe", but once you do, you're in for a seduction.
Bravo, bravo, bravo. Buy this, savor it, and thank heaven that even though, as one of the songs says, "Time Marches On", we live in an age where we can take the occasional breather and hear things like this in our living rooms.
