Editorial Reviews

"This discography provides a listing of the songs and singers on 459 original cast albums for New York musicals from 1931 to 1986. Entries are arranged alphabetically by show titles. Information includes opening date and theater; revival productions and multiple recordings of the same show; record label and number; whether mono, stereo, or compact disc; composer, lyricist, and conductor credits; and cast members who sing on the recordings. The largest section of each entry--and the focus of this work--is a list of all songs on the album in the order they are performed on the recording; each song title is followed by the singer who sings it.... The American musical theater, including its discography, is well covered by reference sources.... [It] is a creditable compilation that will be of interest to both specialists and general collections."-Reference Book Bulletin
