Synopsis: What are the essential records that should form the heart of any collection of musical theatre? Where do the best recordings fit in the history and development of the musical? Are original recordings of hit shows of the 1950s and 1960s preferable to modern re-creations? How do film soundtrack and original cast recordings compare to other commercial issues? If a collection has basic representative records from one area of the musical theatre, what are the best additional albums to supplement and enrich that area of music? In this guide Ganzl answers these questions and gives his opinions as to the essential basic discs for any collection of musicals. He assesses the merits of "highlights" and full-score recordings and compares most available or historic recordings of the repertory core. The book also provides information on the recorded history of musical theatre.
From Library Journal:
International in scope, comprehensive in historical coverage, enjoyably written, helpfully opinionated, this unique buyer's guide to recorded musicals serves also as a discography and history of the genre. Ganzl's New Zealand English can be quaint, but his inclusion of German, Austrian, British, and French recorded musicals will educate Americans who may think all worthwhile musicals originated on Broadway. Comparisons between and among recordings are made when several are available for the same show, and recommendations of the 100 "essential" recordings for a core collection are given. Film versions, studio recordings, selections and anthologies, and re-releases on new formats are all included. Lively, welcome, and highly recommended to musical recording librarians and their collector patrons.
