3.0 out of 5 stars flashy campy musical finally on CD August 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
ANKLES AWEIGH makes its long-awaited CD debut! The flashy musical penned by Sammy Cahn and Dan Shapiro is bubbly and bouncy, and the sister-act of Betty and Jane Kean are at the peak of their combined and solo talents.

The convuluted plot involves the sisters as they get entangled in various romantic misadventures and misunderstandings. Many people have commented that the show bears a certain similarity to the 1969 off-Broadway delight DAMES AT SEA, though DAMES is far more charming and clever in its pastiche of the 1930's.

ANKLES AWEIGH is campy, cheesy fun, and has a lot to recommend it to Broadway fans. Peter Filichia as always offers great liner notes, and the remastering is crisp and clear.

Another great reissue from Decca Broadway..and keep an eye out for their next big release coming soon, the 1944 Broadway cast album of MEXICAN HAYRIDE starring June Havoc!

1.0 out of 5 stars For collectors only August 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Even among cast album collectors there are probably many who barely know this show. It had a short 5-month run in 1955. The cast album quickly went out of print and that was that.

Now that Decca Broadway is in the process of re-releasing every cast album in their inventory, they have given us a beautifully re-mastered CD of ANKLES AWEIGH.

The show is junk. It was junk in 1955 and time has done nothing to change that. Look at the tunestack. Not one song made the hit parade (and 1955 was when many hit parade songs came from Broadway and Hollywood.)

The songs are terrible, the plot is terrible and the performances are terrible. It's not even a "fun" flop like WHOOP UP of FLAHOOLEY. It's just a big flop.

Decca has now given us all of their cast albums from the 40s and 50s. The label is now dipping into other catalogues it now controls including M-g-M (BAKER STREET will finally be on CD soon); Kapp and ABC. Bravo to them for that. Collectors who must have EVERY show will want to grab this one while they can as it probably won't stay in print for long.
