Editorial Reviews

The marvelous original cast features Richard Burton and Julie Andrews-and a young Robert Goulet making his Broadway debut!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic!! February 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD
One of the best all time cast albums. Camelot was an excellent musical, a classic of the early sixties, but the cast album was even better. They kept in songs on the album that were actually cut from the stage production, Fie On Goodness, and Take Me To The Fair, and with good reason, they actually stopped the show, not enhancing character or plot at all, and added to the shows running time of over 4 hrs. Wisely excised, but thankfully preserved on the album.
The performances are now legendery, Richard Burton's only, and magnificent, musical, Julie Andrews sublime as Guenevere, and Robert Goulet's definitive version of If Ever I Would Leave You. The orchestrations are thrilling, the overture causes goose bumps, the rest of the album is on the same level. A must have for any musical theater fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST RECORDING OF ONE OF THEATER'S ALL-TIME BEST MUSICALS December 31, 1997
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
No recording of "Camelot" can hold a candle to this one, the Original Broadway(perfectly)Cast w/ Richard Burtom, Julie Andrews & Robert Goulet. This recording utterly captures it's spirit(which is what "Camelot" is all about, anyway) & the exc- ellent plot synopsis(in the CD booklet & on back of the LP) fills in the non-musical gaps of Alan Jay Lerner's most inspired & meaningful work. A must have for anyone who loves good singing, music, theater, etc.-Chip Harmison END

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for any Broadway musical collection July 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is a re-release in the Masterworks Broadway eco-sleeve format (a cardboard cd holder with a booklet tucked inside) and is not a remaster or upgrade. That said the excellent remastering from 1998 sounds just fine.

The listing says this is a CD-R manufactured on demand. No, this title is a regular pressed and packaged CD. CAMELOT has always been one of the top-selling original cast recordings, and each year as hundreds of new productions are staged it continues to sell well.

In reviewing the previous release I wrote:
CAMELOT was a problematic show and despite many revisions for revivals over the years, it has never really worked on stage or screen.

But it DOES work as a recording. Richard Burton and Robert Goulet are perfectly cast and handle their musical numbers well. Julie Andrews provides the spark and sparkle that elevate this show. Guenevere is her richest part: She goes from an immature girl ("Simple Joys of Maidenhood"); to a petty young queen ("Then You May Take Me to the Fair"); through awakening emotions ("Before I Gaze at You Again"); unhappiness ("What DO the Simple Folk Do") and finally heartbroken resignation ("I Loved You Once in Silence.") Julie manages to display this huge range of emotions on the record using just her voice. Today we can only listen and imagine what a wonderful stage performance she gave.

CAMELOT was not well received by the critics. It was ignored by the 1961 Tony awards (BYE BYE BIRDIE won that year.) This original cast recording was so well produced that it, along with several scenes showcased on the ED SULLIVAN HOUR helped turn the show into a box office hit.

Columbia's deluxe Lp is reproduced here with outstanding sound and generous notes.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of Broadway's all-time greats March 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
CAMELOT, the ravishing musical re-telling of the King Arthur legend by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, has never sounded better than in the original 1960 Broadway cast album, now happily reissued on the Columbia Broadway Masterworks label (this is the exact same disc as the previous 1999 Broadway Masterworks pressing but in a new cardboard "eco-pack" sleeve). Richard Burton, Julie Andrews and Robert Goulet lead the cast as the troubled love-triangle of King Arthur, Queen Guenevere and Sir Lancelot.

Julie Andrews, fresh from the London production of MY FAIR LADY, is in glorious voice and sings some of the score's best numbers like "The Simple Joys of Maidenhood", "The Lusty Month of May", "Then You May Take Me to the Fair" and the achingly-poignant "I Loved You Once in Silence". Richard Burton has an attractive singing voice (remember, he was a Welshman!), and has a ball with numbers like "I Wonder What the King is Doing Tonight?" and the Title Song. Robert Goulet delivers the definitive "If Ever I Would Leave You".

CAMELOT enjoyed a modest run of 873 performances (modest in that the composers had hoped to outdo their MY FAIR LADY success, and MFL ended up clocking in over 2,000 performances on Broadway alone). Out of the myriad of CAMELOT cast albums available, this is still the best of the bunch. Sadly, unlike most of the titles from the Broadway Masterworks range, there are no bonus or alternate tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Camelot Original broadway cast November 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD because I always loved Camelot and especially Julie Andrews. It was a fabulous album. Robert Goulet was so great that I bought another CD of his greatest hits. This has to be one of the best broadway CD's I have ever bought. You will love it and I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Camelot- Original Broadway Cast recording May 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Well, as an avid Julie Andrews fan, I can not remain completely unbiased. I love the CD, and the performances are certainly worth the price. This is a real treasure, and every song is done beautifully. I particularly like "If Ever I Would Leave You." Love songs just aren't done that well anymore. Also, every track by JA is exceptional, those songs alone are enough to purchase the CD. I highly reccomend it for anyone who loves Broadway or simply enjoys a good story, because the songs alone tell a wonderful tale.
