Broadway Musical My Fair Lady
My Fair Lady is--deservedly--one of the most famous musicals of all time. Its
popular 1964 film version, directed by George Cukor, has
ensured that for most people Audrey Hepburn is Eliza
Doolittle, while Broadway-heads swear by Julie Andrews's stage
performance, immortalized on the
1956 cast album. Of course, for the purposes of a CD
review it's more accurate to compare the performances of
Marni Nixon, who sang the songs lip-synched by Hepburn in
the movie. While Andrews usually comes out on top (especially
on "I Could Have Danced All Night"), Nixon is no slouch (after
all, she also dubbed Natalie Wood in
West Side Story and Deborah Kerr in
The King & I). Rex Harrison, of course, does his own vocals, but then he doesn't so much sing his songs as talk
them. While Nixon and Harrison are tops, the truth is that Lerner and Loewe's songs are so good as to endure almost
anybody's interpretation: "Wouldn't It Be Loverly," "With a Little Bit of Luck," "On the Street Where You Live," "Get Me
to the Church on Time," and so on--not many shows can boast as many classics. The movie version's real bonus is Andre
Previn's swellegant orchestration. --Elisabeth Vincentelli
This expanded soundtrack is a great recording in its own right. However the original Broadway cast album (with Julie
Andrews, et. al.)is more satisfying overall. The movie soundtrack features Andre Previn's rich Oscar winning(well
deserved)musical scoring. Also included are several members of the stage version most particularly Rex Harrison. Since
Harrision recorded his vocals "live" on the movie set, they often have a tinny, offsetting sound compared to eveyone elses,
but its not too distracting. The downside is the Nixon/Hepburn vocal combination. Nixon's dubbing of Hepburn is not as
successful(and much more obvious)as her other efforts(Kerr/Nixon in "King and I" was perfect, good results were also had in
"West Side Story"). I believe Hepburn should have been allowed to use more of her vocals, which were recently located for the
movie's restoration. Perhaps Nixon should have "kicked in" once Hepburn becomes a "lady" during the second hafe of the
film. Of course, in the best of all possible worlds Julie Andrews should have been allowed to repeat her stage role, but
this was not to be. Its good to have this expanded cd available. The original LP omitted a great deal of music
because of time constants. This cd makes up for that. One complaint: the expanded version includes too much incidental
dialog and sound effects. Obviously these selections were "lifted" from the final "mixed" tracks as heard in the film
and have no place on a music only CD. The cd producers should have made an effort to located the "unmixed" musical tracks
and properly edit them for the cd. My suggestion is get both the Broadway recording for its great performances and the
movie soundtrack for its wonderful scoring and completness.

Broadway Musical My Fair Lady
This recording was produced more than 40 years ago, only in mono, but from the day it was released it was a deserved
phenomenon. It out-grossed the mega-hit show for months, and it still holds the record for the most weeks as a Billboard
Top 40 album: 292. The reasons are many. Start with the 20-year-old Julie Andrews in peak voice, singing no fewer than
eight sensational Lerner and Loewe songs, soaring most memorably to high C in "I Could Have Danced All Night." Rex
Harrison perfected the art of talk-singing in a clutch of equally captivating numbers written especially for his voice,
of which the most indelibly delivered is "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face." And Stanley Holloway brought the best
English music-hall style to an eager American audience with "A Little Bit of Luck" and "Get Me to the Church on Time." There
were no scene-changers in Frederick Loewe's best score, and Alan Jay Lerner managed to fashion his libretto and lyrics so
close to the language of George Bernard Shaw (on whose play Pygmalion the musical was based) that experts couldn't
tell where Shaw left off and Lerner took over. Every song created character and advanced the plot. My Fair Lady
was a show you "got"--and still get--on first listening--without having seen it. The London cast album (with
the same leads) can give you stereo; the movie version, a fuller orchestra, Harrison and Holloway in full sail, and
Marni Nixon dubbing Audrey Hepburn. But the Broadway cast album is still the one to have, and the one absolute must in
any musical collector's CD library. --Robert Windeler
The original Broadway cast album of MY FAIR LADY is a mandatory disc in every self-respecting musical fan's
collection. It captures the cast at the top of their game, and Julie Andrews at the peak of her Broadway career. Her voice is
sparkling and effervescent, with Rex Harrison as a thrilling Higgins and Stanley Holloway a delight as Eliza's erstwhile
father Alfred P. Doolittle. The monaural sound is warm and lush in Columbia's best style. This newest remaster of the
album sounds better than ever. By the time the London cast album was recorded 4 years later (to take advantage of the new
stereo format), a tired feeling had crept into Julie Andrews' singing (or perhaps boredom), so the Broadway edition is the
format of choice, despite the technical limitations of the mono mix.
