Editorial Reviews

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

5.0 out of 5 stars No other version matches Joel and Liza October 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
~ - ~ 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Viva La Diva May 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD
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 of the first places to be destroyed by fascism and Hitler) and to me, that is why the story line and these songs 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 the Cabaret girls did in the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Wonderful! September 22, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have! December 12, 1999
By miteki
Format:Audio CD
For those who have become fans of the musical "Cabaret" due to the 1998 revival (starring Natasha Richardson) then you must have this CD. Nothing compares to Joel Grey as the "Emcee". And also, get the video! The Fosse touch to the movie based on the musical is special.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Different Interpretation of Cabaret July 30, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It really bothered me that a review below stated that Liza Minnelli wasn't Sally Bowles and that the song "Cabaret" is about Sally being upset that she lost her true love and that its about Sally coming to the realization that she is stuck in the awful cabaret.

Well, with all due respect, this is wrong. The reviewer probably got that idea by listening to Natasha Richardson sing "Cabaret" and believed that because Sally is crying, she must realize that she lost everything and that she is stuck in some god awful place. Well, the song "Cabaret" is really about Sally's desperate attempt to convince herself that everything is normal, that everything will remain the same. Sally is in deep denial and believes that her life will always be full of decadence, glitz, parties, and fun even as Germany falls under the control of the Nazi party.

However, one must keep in mind that Liza's Sally Bowles and Natasha Richardson's Sally Bowles are two very different interpretations. Liza was almost a decade younger than Natasha Richardson when she played Sally Bowles (Liza was about 26 and Natasha was about 35 when they tackled the roles of Sally). Because of this Liza's Sally is more young and naive and when she is singing "Cabaret" she honestly does believe that everything will be okay. This does not leave the viewer with a happy feeling as one reviewer said, it leaves us feeling sad and a scared for Sally because we know what the future holds in store for her and for Germany.

However, Natasha Richardson's Sally is older and less naive. Because of this, when she sings "Cabaret" she has to make herself believe in what she is singing. She has to make herself believe that everything will return to normal and that she will continue living the way she does no matter what happens.
