A useful complete record

While the original cast has, in my opinion, a stronger vocal showing, this album does offer the distinct advantage of a complete recording. Several songs that were truncated or cut on the OCR (notably "I've got You to Lean On" and "There's Always a Woman") are restored to their full glory, which alone makes this a recording worth owning.

One of my must-haves

I personally disagree with the previous reviewer. This recording of Anyone Can Whistle, in my opinion, far outshines its predecessor. Though there are some weak moments (such as "Me and My Town"), it's really great. I also think that Bernadette Peters' "Anyone Can Whistle" is truly the best I've ever heard (ditto "There's Always A Woman"). I didn't mind her "Come Play Wiz Me" because the rest of her performance was amazing, especially compared to Lee Remick's (Remick really wasn't a singer, so her performance wasn't as vocally impressive). Scott Bakula may not have the deep, masculine voice that Harry Guardino does, but he shocked me with his performance in "Everybody Says Don't." In general, pick this one!

go for broadway

Why would anyone buy this cast album when the alternate cast album has ANGELENA LANSBURY! The cast in this album is very weak.
