Format: Audio CD
Alan Lerner's light baritone is the perfect and most heartfelt voice for these clasic songs. Unexpectedly, my favorites on this album turned out to be those with which I was less familiar -- "Come Back to Me" and "What Did I Have" from "On a Clear Day..." He does have some amusing anecdotes about the creation of "My Fair Lady," and it was nice to finally hear the long-apocryphal "Come to the Ball" and the alternate lyrics for "The Street Where You Live". Lerner could have had his own entertaining caberet act, if this CD is any indication. He is amusing, profound, touching -- and occasionally corny, but always enchanting. A very enjoyable CD. Gripes: Well, I wish he'd used some of the wittier songs from "Camelot" instead of the ones he did select. And I wish someone would tell me if the similarities between "Follow Me" and "Come Back to Me" are real or imagined!!! Overall, quite delightful!!!

This audio snapshot from a brilliant writer from a time now vanished is a treasure, a nice combination of the familiar and other songs which are mostly forgotten. My sister was privileged to attend such a show at the Springer Opera House in Columbus GA around this same period. Lerner's work is always worth your attention if you love words and humor (of several varieties!), tenderness and beauty. He and Loewe brought out the best in each other. It's satisfying that such masterful material lives on.
