5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Lyrics and Stellar Interpretations March 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD has received lukewarm reviews from some Barbraphiles who, predictably, view the show as nothing without Streisand. This is simply not the case. First, it must remembered that reviewers should be reviewing the show as a work, not its position in Barbra Streisand's personal development. Granted, she does an excellent job with her numbers and is certainly a stand-out, particularly with her specialty, "Miss Marmelstein." However, in merely looking at Barbra's numbers, we are excluding a whole gamut of great songs, including "When Gemini Meets Capricorn" (with the brilliant lyric "Did the planets plan it" among others), "What Are They Doing To Us Now?," "A Gift Today," and "Momma, Momma, Momma." This score is great, and it is certainly a highlight of Harold Rome's career. Granted, Elliot Gould is no Bruce Yarnell (Annie Get Your Gun 1966) or Ray Middleton (AGYG 1946), but he is adequate. Again, it is a great recording. Contrary to what other reviewers have said, do NOT pre-program your CD player to skip the non-Streisand numbers. If you do, you will have missed out on a stellar score.

4.0 out of 5 stars Barbra Streisand's Broadway debut! August 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I CAN GET IT FOR YOU WHOLESALE features an energetic score by Harold Rome, but is still best-remembered for being the Broadway debut of a promising young Brooklyn belter by the name of Barbra Streisand. Streisand had been performing her act at the Bon Soir and Blue Angel clubs, but had never set foot on a Broadway stage until she landed the supporting role of Miss Yetta Tessye Marmelstein in WHOLESALE. Streisand met her future husband Elliott Gould, who played the male lead - Harry Bogen - in the show. The story is set in the New York garment district circa the late-1930s, where Harry asipres to climb to the top of the ladder of success, and doesn't care if his real friends get hurt along the way.

The rest of the cast is sensational: Bambi Linn (Dream Laurey in OKLAHOMA! on film), Marilyn Cooper (WEST SIDE STORY's original Rosalia) as Harry's love interest Ruthie, Harold Lang (the original Bill Calhoun in KISS ME KATE) and Lillian Roth (70 GIRLS 70). Standout numbers include, of course, "Miss Marmelstein", but also enjoyable are Marilyn Cooper's "Who Knows?" and "A Funny Thing Happened". Sound quality is crisp and clean. Highly-recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Kid Stopped the Show May 18, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I was working in Philadelphia when a musical by Harold Rome, based on one of the books we had all read, opened in preview for its NYC run. Major attractions were the veteran actress/singer, Lillian Roth, a bright new star, Elliot Gould and, of course, the composer of Pins and Needles. Like the book, the show was much like Rodgers and Hart's, 1940, Pal Joey, in which an entirely unlovely character, takes everyone who can help him for a ride. Gould was good, Lillian Roth lived up to our expectations, Jack Khruschen moaned a song that still reverberates in my mind ( I Am Not A Well Man), Rome created a score that fit the needs of the show and was above average in quality, but, of all memories, one stands out, the unknown girl who, just as the movies would have it, stopped the show with two of her songs. No publicity, no expectations based on word of mouth, just a youngster, none of us had ever heard of, playing Miss Marmelstein, giving a star's performance. Not until years later, when living far from Philadelphia, far from Broadway, did I learn that the bright performer knocking them dead in Funny Girl, was that girl; of course, Barbra Streisand.
So,for Streisand fans, this is a must buy, the first chance she had to put her indelible stamp on a role. For the rest of us, whether we saw her in those days or not, the Original Broadway Cast Album, is well worth the price. Why Amazon should ignore the star of the show, Elliot Gould, I know not, but he handles his songs well, as an actor, not a singer, so too do others in the cast; the melodies are good examples of the work of one of the best of the group who gave us so much good musical theater, though never to the level of their contemporaries, Berlin, Rodgers and Hart, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, and, Harold Arlen with such as Johnny Mercer. Then, of course, for all of us, there is Streisand in a setting shaped to her possibilities.
The price tag is right. Listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoying an old musical September 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
1962 was the year I ended my high school education and started my college education, majoring in Theatre. It was also the year Babb's first musical was on Broadway. I really loved the entire show, the music was wonderful and the lyrics were to die for.

I saw the original movie on television a few weeks ago, a straight play, and thought how wonderful it could be converted into a broadway musical, and by golly, they did.

The entire cast was just great and I would recomend this CD to any musical comedy buff.

I wish Amazon would offer a spell check

4.0 out of 5 stars Barbra... and company! February 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Of course Barbra Streisand is the force behind this not-quite-average cast recording, but the rest of the cast isn't bad! The Overture is one of my favorites from a cast album... it ranks with GYPSY, MAME, and FUNNY GIRL. "Miss Marmelstein" is the best, and most memorable, song on the album. Other good songs are "Momma, Momma, Momma", "Eat a Little Something", and "What Are They Doing to Us Now?". I recommend this album to any Barbra fans and to DIE-HARD cast album collectors.

Well, Roth, Lang, et al. certainly didn't do it - or their flagging careers - justice; nor had the earlier film adaptation made anything of a splash. Read more

Barbra Streisand's voice is outstanding on this album. From the voice that you hear you can tell that the Brodway play was outstanding also.
