This CD is a great reminder of how much the American musical theatre owes to Meredith Wilson, creator of, in my opinion, THE American Musical, that is, The Music Man. A classic. Although this show does not meet the high standard set by The Music Man...it comes awfully close. The songs are tuneful and catchy...and I especially like the title song and Arm in Arm...it's a shame that this is not as popular as it should be. This recording combines everything and leaves an impression on the listener...everything clicks...the performers are wonderful and the songs...again...are very good...however the book, in my opinion is a bit tedious. But other than that...a good show all round.

Here's Love is the last musical to complete the Meredith Wilson Broadway musical trifecta. Mr. Wilson had already written his smash hit, The Music Man and his mild success, The Unsinkable Molly Brown when he wrote, Here's Love in 1963. This is the musical version of Miracle on 34th Street. When compared to The Music Man, Here's Love can't compete, but don't be so quick to dismiss this show. Here's Love has some good numbers such as Pine Cones and Holly Berries, Arm in Arm, the title song, and She Hadda Go Back. The show is, overall, well sung and acted. Now on to the bad news. Here's Love has a lot of filler songs. It was hard for Mr. Wilson to musicalize the movie because it was some tight and compact there was little room for change. Most Broadway aficionados dismiss this show as fluff and that is what it mostly consists of. So if you are a fan of Meredith Wilson or a showtune collector like myself please pick this up. Otherwise, you might want to pass it by.

HERE'S LOVE! is a musical version of MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET, which began life as a story written by Valentine Davies before being transformed into the evergreen movie classic with a screenplay by George Seaton.
HERE'S LOVE! features a good score by Meredith Willson, though it hardly compares to mega-hit THE MUSIC MAN (or the uneven UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN score). Despite having a strong cast led by the ebullient redhead Janis Paige, HERE'S LOVE! folded after 338 performances at the Shubert Theatre.
Janis Paige; who originated the role of Babe in THE PAJAMA GAME and who would go on to replace Angela Lansbury in MAME; is a great presence here on disc, though her voice is a little threadbare. She is especially fetching with the reprise of "Look, Little Girl", as well as her duet with the young Valerie Lee - "Arm in Arm".
The cast also featured veteran British actor Laurence Naismith as Kris Kringle, with Craig Stevens, Paul Reed, Fred Gwynne and David Doyle.
The Overture is quite thrilling in its recreation of the approaching Macy's Parade, and other standout numbers include "Expect Things to Happen", "Love, Come Take Me Again", "My Wish" and "She Hadda Go Back".
A lovely cast album.

I was an original cast member (as a child of 9 years old) of the Broadway production of "Here's Love" for it's full run on Broadway. I played the role of Hendrika, the little Dutch girl, as well as performed in the children's chorus. It is me who you hear singing with Lawrence Naismith the duet song, "The Bugle". It may not be Meredith Wilson's best musical endeavor, but for me it was an amazing and magical experience!
While I love that Amazon allows it's customers to sample a little of all the album's songs, I do have one critique. I do wish they took the time to credit the correct performers who are singing in the songs rather than just putting "Fred Gwynne and Lawrence Naismith" on every song and that should be corrected. As the saying goes... "Give credit where credit is due".
Here's a bit of trivia... Michael Bennett (A Chorus Line) and Baayork Lee (also of A Chorus Line) were both chorus dancers in "Here's Love" before their fame, and I loved them both. As you can imagine, performing night after night together, and twice on Saturday and Wednesday in those days, for two years... the whole cast became family! "Here's Love" was a magical experience, one I will never forget! I still get chills hearing the overture as I did all those years ago as a child of 9 yrs old because I knew it meant one thing... curtains up!!

I saw this show at age 13 at the National Theater prior to Broadway. Even though I wouldn't regard this show as totally successful, I loved the show then, and I still love a lot of it now: like the long introduction with overture morphing into song (The Big Clown Balloons) then into Michael Kidd's choreographed Macy's Parade. Willson also made some rather interesting attempts to deepen the charactor of Doris Walker (Janis Paige--that unique Broadway voice that's a treat to hear) with operatic
parlando songs like "You'll never know" and "Look, Little Girl", unfortunately leading the show in an entirely inappropriate direction from the satirical "Miracle". Finally Willson hits his comedic stride with clever patter--"She Hadda Go Back" and the cheerfully absurd declaration by R.H.Macy "That Man Over There (is Santa Claus)",robustly performed by Paul Reed. There is,of course, the ubiquitous Willson March--"Here's Love" and some not very natural sentimental songs. The whole is very well orchestrated by the great Don Walker. Unfortunately he never really found a way to come up with songs that would launch this particular story into the stratospheric realms of "The Music Man". Mainly of interest to fans of the rich background of 50's and 60's Broadway.
