Editorial Reviews

Based on the Broadway smash, the movie Bye Bye Birdie was released in 1963 and starred Dick Van Dyke and Paul Lynde reprising their roles from the Broadway production along with Janet Leigh, Maureen Stapleton and Ann-Margret in her first starring role. The film opened at New York's Radio City Music Hall and broke the theater's all-time box office records, going on to receive two Academy Award nominations. Fifty years later, Bye Bye Birdie continues to charm and entertain, and its songs by Charles Strouse (Annie, Applause) and Lee Adams have lost none of their appeal and vivacity. The soundtrack, featuring the well known songs 'Put On a Happy Face,' 'One Last Kiss' and 'Bye Bye Birdie,' has been remastered from the original tapes and includes three bonus tracks featuring studio recordings from film stars Ann-Margret and Jesse Pearson.

What bad thing can you say about the original version of the musical that stole America's heart? Dick Van Dyke, Chita Rivera, and Susan Watson are all magnificant! This C.D. has the original charm, which makes it special every time you listen to it. I've done this play, and when I first heard this C.D., I knew this was the musical for me!

In terms of content, this album is identical to the Broadway recording (apart from that recording's bonus tracks which aren't enought to tip the balance). Chita Rivera gives a definitive performance as Rosie in both recordings but is even better in the London recording. Peter Marshall sings better than Dick Van Dyke although as Van Dyke has a touch more personality, it is a close run thing. Susan Watson on the Broadway recording outsings Sylvia Tysack on the London but Tysack is the more convincing teenager. Broadway's Paul Lynde reigns supreme as Harry Mcafee but London's Robert Nichols isn't far behind. Marty Wilde as Birdie is a definite improvement on Broadway's Dick Gautier and "Honestly Sincere" and "One Last Kiss", the two rock 'n roll parodies, come off much better in his hands. He's helped in this because Alyn Ainsworth and his orchestra are also more in tune with this particular misical idiom than their Broadway counterparts. Up to this point, it's a very close run thing as to which is the better album. The deciding factor for me is the quality of the London recording which let's through much more orchestral detail than the Broadway. There isn't a huge amont of difference between the Broadway and London recordings. If you are about to buy your first "Birdie" recording, go for the London. If you have the Broadway and want another, again get the London. In any event, it is important to have a recording that features Chita Rivera as Rose. The TV soundtrack album has extra songs but Vanessa Williams is not Chita Rivera and most of the new material isn't as good as the original score. So it's a very big welcome back for the London recording.

Format: Audio CD
This reissue of the London cast of BYE BYE BIRDIE is most welcome to any cast-album collector. Though I do prefer the Broadway cast (available on the Sony Broadway Masterworks label), the cast here is quite excellent.
Chita Rivera reprises her role of Rose Grant; partnering her as Albert Peterson is Peter Marshall. Rivera's performance is a tad more polished on this recording, and the arrangements are paced a little more slowly here. When Rivera left the Broadway company she was replaced by Gretchen Wyler.
However, those people who have criticised Susan Watson's performance as Kim on the Broadway recording should reserve their judgement for this Kim - namely Sylvia Tysick. Tysick has a terribly-thin upper register and really struggles with most of her material. Getting back to Susan Watson...she sounds so much better on the revival cast-album of NO, NO, NANETTE (available on the Sony Broadway Masterworks label) that her lack of vocal finesse in BIRDIE can be attributed to her young age.
The rest of the cast are fantatic, with Angela Baddeley (Mrs Bridges in "Upstairs Downstairs") as Mae Peterson, and Marty Wilde as Conrad Birdie himself.
Highly-recommended. (Decca Broadway)

The only thing on the London recording that approaches the Broadway Cast album is Chita Rivera's performance as Rosie, which is also ON the Broadway version. Peter Marshall makes the character of Albert Peterson sound like a Jerry Lewis creation and Sylvia Tysick as Kim DOES sound like a teenager- one who can't sing. The kids on this album generally are awful. They screech instead of sing and many of them have pronounced accents. A lot of the singing is out of tune and the orchestra hits clams frequently. This album was recorded in an era where British versions of American musicals were frequently inferior vocally to their U.S. counterparts. Thankfully, that has changed. London has proven to be a haven for many discarded American musicals that deserve revivals here, but for financial reasons will probably never see the light of day. Perhaps someone in England will revive "Birdie" and produce a recording that does this underrated show true justice.

BYE BYE BIRDIE was dusted off for a television version in 1995, featuring a cast made up of Broadway veterans and newcomers alike. The soundtrack album is a bouncy and enjoyable delight.

Vanessa Williams takes on her second Chita Rivera-originated role, as beleagured secretary Rose Alvarez. Jason Alexander ("The Rink", "Jerome Robbins' Broadway") returns to his musical theatre roots as Albert Peterson. The rest of the cast is sensational: Marc Kudisch (reprising his national tour role) as Conrad Birdie; Tyne Daly ("Gypsy", "Call Me Madam") as Mae Peterson; George Wendt as Mr MacAfee, and Sally Mayes ("She Loves Me") as Mrs MacAfee. The only shortcoming is the sorely-miscast Chynna Phillips, who hardly convinces in the role of pert teenager Kim MacAfee (she really only pulls off pert). Ann-Margret she ain't.

Several new songs were added for this TV version, including "Let's Settle Down", a charming ballad for Rosie; and "A Mother Doesn't Matter Anymore", a great character-turn for Tyne Daly as the grasping Mae. The other numbers, including the classics "An English Teacher", "A Lot of Livin' to Do" and "Kids" are all performed to perfection. And yes, Vanessa Williams even performs "Spanish Rose", with some slight lyric alterations.

A must-own for BIRDIE fans.
