Product Description

Come to the original soundtrack recording of Cabaret starring Joel Grey and Liza Minnelli! Includes such great songs as Tomorrow Belongs to Me; Money, Money; Cabaret; Two Ladies; If You Could See Her , and more.

Amazon.com

Cheated out of playing nightclub canary Sally Bowles on Broadway in director Hal Price's Cabaret, Liza Minnelli nevertheless delivered an Oscar-winning star turn in Bob Fosse's cinematic reinvention of the show (which had the good sense to retain perverse imp Joel Grey from the stage production). Although the 1972 film discarded several songs from the original score, the new ones sound even better: Minnelli's breast-beating "Maybe This Time," the sultry "Mein Herr," and the salaciously satirical "Money, Money." By placing almost all the pertinent musical action on the stage of the decadent Kit Kit Club, the Kurt Weill-like compositional nuances and political underpinnings bask in the spotlight...that is, when Minnelli stops eclipsing it with her no-holds-barred performance. --Kurt B. Reighley

After reading all of the reviews where everyone blasts Liza Minnelli, and how this was a vehicle for her talents...I think they forget that she was originally desired for the role of Sally Bowles in the first place, and was considered too American. Yes, one cannot deny this is Judy Garland's daughter. Every actor/actress has one or two roles that define perfection...and in this case (as much as I hate to admit) this is Liza's. Ripping apart the "love triangle" and comparing it to the broadway musical, you are forgetting to the heart of this production in the first place: the stories written by Christopher Isherwood, and that is exactly what Fosse did in his desire to return to the original inspiration. Sexuality couldn't be mentioned in 1966 as something realistic or even a possibility. But blooming homosexuality/bisexuality was VERY prelevent in Weimar Berlin (it is even alluded to in the silent German classic: Pandora's Box, with Louise Brooks, which has modern cinema's first lesbian and remember, in Frankfurt there was a center for Studies on Human Sexuality that as early as 1925 said that homosexuality was natural...one of the first places to be destroyed by fascism and Hitler) and to me, that is why the story line and these songs work...it is realistic and also very true to Isherwood's stories. So if anything, blame the stage musical for glossing over the truth...not the film. Obvious critics also blast the cutting out of a lot of the original tracks, which again works because the story line has changed. Why include tracks of Sally's landlady singing about her love for a Jewish fruit vendor if it isn't even alluded to in the film?

Every track on this disc, makes you wish you could actually go to a Cabaret and see girls kicking up their heels...like the Cabaret girls did in the film.

~ - ~ For the most complete set of songs from Cabaret, I recommend the 1998 Broadway version. But for the most memorable performances, this Movie version with Joel Grey and Liza Minelli is a winner.
~
~ - ~ However, the one thing you will miss most in any other version of Cabaret is Liza Minelli belting out the title song, and even more importantly, her rendition of "Maybe this time". I've seen the show twice, and have 3 different sound tracks, but no one anywhere can sing these two songs like her. Another bonus is Liza Minelli and Joel Grey singing "Money, Money, Money".
~ - ~ This version, while it has fewer songs, (and some lyrics were cut), is remarkable for the quality of the singing. It is especially good if you've seen the movie. Then such numbers as "Tomorrow Belongs to Me" will really carry an emotional impact.
~
~ - ~ Overall, not the most complete collection of songs from Cabaret. But I have to give it 5 stars because I keep this tape in my car along with the Broadway version, just so I can hear Liza sing "maybe this time I'll win..." one more time.

I was required to study the 1972 Cabaret movie for year 12 english, and upon entering the theatre to watch the film I was utterly gripped and enthralled by its magic. The magic of its music. Afterwards, all my classmates groaned about the film and the music, not enjoying it at all. But the next day I ordered the CD from America, as I couldn't get it anywhere else, I just wanted the songs that much. Never have I listened to one CD in which every song is utterly brilliant and enjoyable! Each song is wonderfully crafted, especially by Liza Minelli and Joel Grey, whose talent I commend greatly. Liza sings with such emotion and energy that she is a joy to listen to. If I had to choose the two best songs, I would say 'Cabaret' and 'Tomorrow belongs to me.' Liza is fantastic in 'Cabaret', the music is fun and energy packed, as it builds up towards the end where she is utterly explosive, as in 'Mein Herr' and 'Maybe this time.' That I would say is the best part of the songs on this CD, the way they build up growing stronger and more exciting. 'Tomorrow belongs to me', although different to what I have heard before, is a wonderful anthem that really moves something inside of me. I cannot describe its beauty in words, it is just truly amazing the way it captivates you! I must urge, even those who have not seen the movie, to buy this CD. It is amazing, it is something different and wonderful that can be enjoyed by my generation as well as the experienced music listener. It cannot and will not dissapoint.

Cabaret came out in 1972, after Mom had just given birth to her 7th child (of ten!). I was the oldest, and can recall Mom describing the movie afterward to a friend as "a little risque"... funny the things we remember! It probably did seem that way to my mother, a full-time homemaker who led a very simple (very UN-night-clubbish) life (and did one heckuva job raising us all!), but I'm sure all of the awards it received were too enticing --- EIGHT Oscars, including Best Actress for Liza Minelli and Best Supporting Actor for Joel Grey. (Sort of hard to believe it didn't also win Best Picture given all of the other awards --- then again, it's the year "The Godfather" won... pretty stiff competition!) It's set in 1931 Berlin, surrounded by the growing presence of the Nazi party, and also starred Michael York.

Even though I didn't actually see many old musicals until I became an adult and developed an appreciation for them, it felt like I'd already learned all of their songs since Mom seemed to find reasons to continuously be singing or humming around the house (hard to believe, with how full her plate was!) She's always been a happy, easy-to-please kind of person, so you'd think finding gifts for her would be equally easy... NOT! I did come up with a pretty good idea a couple of years ago for her birthday, though - recalling her particular love of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals, I put a collection together for her that she thoroughly enjoyed. Then I decided to pursue her love of old movie musicals even further. Typed a Google search for "Top 25 Film Musicals", and the first thing that popped up was just such a list that the American Film Institute came up with in 2006!
