My Fair Lady is--deservedly--one of the most famous musicals of all time. Its popular 1964 film version, directed by George Cukor, has ensured that for most people Audrey Hepburn is Eliza Doolittle, while Broadway-heads swear by Julie Andrews's stage performance, immortalized on the 1956 cast album. Of course, for the purposes of a CD review it's more accurate to compare the performances of Andrews and Marni Nixon, who sang the songs lip-synched by Hepburn in the movie. While Andrews usually comes out on top (especially on "I Could Have Danced All Night"), Nixon is no slouch (after all, she also dubbed Natalie Wood in West Side Story and Deborah Kerr in The King & I). Rex Harrison, of course, does his own vocals, but then he doesn't so much sing his songs as talk them. While Nixon and Harrison are tops, the truth is that Lerner and Loewe's songs are so good as to endure almost anybody's interpretation: "Wouldn't It Be Loverly," "With a Little Bit of Luck," "On the Street Where You Live," "Get Me to the Church on Time," and so on--not many shows can boast as many classics. The movie version's real bonus is Andre Previn's swellegant orchestration. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

If you loved the movie - the soundtrack is a must!
Mary Madden
"I Could Have Danced All Night" features Marni Nixon at her very best; the operatic qualities of her voice really shine through on this number!
Matthew G. Sherwin
I have loved this movie for many years, and the soundtrack is GREAT!

This expanded soundtrack is a great recording in its own right. However the original Broadway cast album (with Julie Andrews, et. al.)is more satisfying overall. The movie soundtrack features Andre Previn's rich Oscar winning(well deserved)musical scoring. Also included are several members of the stage version most particularly Rex Harrison. Since Harrision recorded his vocals "live" on the movie set, they often have a tinny, offsetting sound compared to eveyone elses, but its not too distracting. The downside is the Nixon/Hepburn vocal combination. Nixon's dubbing of Hepburn is not as successful(and much more obvious)as her other efforts(Kerr/Nixon in "King and I" was perfect, good results were also had in "West Side Story"). I believe Hepburn should have been allowed to use more of her vocals, which were recently located for the movie's restoration. Perhaps Nixon should have "kicked in" once Hepburn becomes a "lady" during the second hafe of the film. Of course, in the best of all possible worlds Julie Andrews should have been allowed to repeat her stage role, but this was not to be. Its good to have this expanded cd available. The original LP omitted a great deal of music because of time constants. This cd makes up for that. One complaint: the expanded version includes too much incidental dialog and sound effects. Obviously these selections were "lifted" from the final "mixed" tracks as heard in the film and have no place on a music only CD. The cd producers should have made an effort to located the "unmixed" musical tracks and properly edit them for the cd. My suggestion is get both the Broadway recording for its great performances and the movie soundtrack for its wonderful scoring and completness.

When it comes to "My fair lady," I prefer the original Broadway cast recording to this soundtrack. Because Audrey didn't sing! Of course, in the movie she was very wonderful and lovely. But in the soundtrack, Marni Nixon sings Eliza's songs. I have four recordings of My Fair Lady, my best is the original Broadway Cast Recording. But the orchestration by Andre Previn is by far the best. I recommend it because of this wonderful orchestration.

Format: Audio CD
This CD of the songs from the 1964 film My Fair Lady really does a great job of giving you the flavor of this spectacular musical. The sound quality is superb; and the artwork is well done.

The overture is as beautiful as it was the very first time I ever heard it while watching this film. The lush musical arrangement works very well to mark the beginning of this classic and timeless motion picture. The strings sound great. "Why can't The English?" is performed mainly by Rex Harrison; he can't really sing but the way he essentially speaks his lines to this tune really makes this number hum along well! Rex Harrison is able to use his voice to boom out the lyrics to anyone even remotely within earshot--and this impresses me very much.

"Wouldn't It Be Loverly" features the Marni Nixon singing in place of Audrey Hepburn (Hepburn's singing voice was dubbed). Marni sings this with great sensitively and she pegs down that accent like the pro she always was! "With A Little Bit Of Luck" has the great Stanley Holloway performing to perfection; and there's a great number in "The Rain In Spain" when Eliza Doolittle finally manages to get the "proper" accent down pat.

"I Could Have Danced All Night" features Marni Nixon at her very best; the operatic qualities of her voice really shine through on this number! Bill Shirley also does a great job on "On The Street Where You Live." Bill could really belt this out! "Show Me" also showcases Marni Nixon's great talents as a vocalist; her voice sounds clear as a bell and she never misses a note!

"A Hymn To Him" is a very funny number performed primarily by the great Rex Harrison; he delivers this with panache, heart and soul.

JAVLPK cracks me up. He sniffs that Marni Nixon sings with an "American twang", which is ridiculous. She doesn't, and Hepburn wasn't English either, by the way ...
Nixon, one of the most underrated and briliant sopranos of our time, brings her unique personality to the songs, which were beautifully done by Andrews on the OBC. Nixon has a focussed, controlled electricity to her singing that sets her apart from Andrews.
Andrews and Nixon are both excellent, just different, and fans of the show should own both albums.
Is JVLPK aware that MY FAIR LADY is an *American* musical? After hearing the hilarious American accents attempted at times in the West End, I think JVLPK should cut Nixon a little slack. I'll never forget Denis Quilley doing Arthur Miller's early play ALL MY SONS in the West End. He and his stage family, supposedly middleclass suburban Americans, all sounded like Chicago mobsters out of a '30s gangster movie. It was like an American actress trying to impersonate Princess Diana by talking cockney. LOL.
Just as tin-earred American actors imagine that one generic English accent will do for all British characters, English actors sometimes return the favor. There are thousands of American accents across this huge continent, just as there are endless types of British accents. Actors need to learn to match the accent to the character.
