LP0262. TO BROADWAY WITH LOVE, Original 1964 World's Fair cast saluting music of Broadway featuring the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Cole Porter & Irving Berlin. Columbia grey label stereo OS 2630, in gatefold jacket. Pristine copy has neatly reinforced spine.
“When TO BROADWAY WITH LOVE, the New York World’s Fair’s big, bright, bountiful musical extravaganza, opened at the Music Hall in the Texas Pavilions in April 1964, Manhattan’s newspaper critics were lavish in their praise. THE NEW YORK TIMES called it ‘a swift, sentimental journey into the songs, dances, and moods of other days … a cheerful show’. Other reviewers variously described it as ‘expertly conceived’, ‘beautifully staged … heavily populated with talent’, ‘the biggest eyeful and earful of stage memories you’re ever likely to meet’, and simply ‘a great show’. This song-filled album preserves – perhaps as a memento of your own visit to The Music Hall – highlights from this salute to Broadway’s musical theater.”
