Description

Most other Broadway collections feature just studio or orchestral recreations of the tunes, but Jasmine's superlative 4CD set features the original performances by the original stars. With 100 titles from 1927-1957 spanning three decades including 17 'showstoppers' such as "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, "Oh, How I Hate To Get Up In The Morning" from This Is The Army and "Nobody's Chasing Me" from Out Of This World. Fitting nicely alongside the big showstoppers are some superbly re-mastered novelties in this ultimate collection.
