7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By J. T Waldmann on December 14, 2005
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Printed on the back of the jacket for AT HOME ABROAD, in very tiny letters, is the following: "This Recording is a presentation of The Council for Musical Theatre, a NON-profit Educational Foundation, the Aims of which are to Promote and Preserve Musical Theatre and to Educate the public in this regard. As part of its Educational Programme, limited editions of historic recordings not generally available from commercial sources are made available to those engaged in academic research, education and comment with regard to Musical Theatre."

So be forewarned: This is an "historic" recording! Therefore, you are going to experience tinny sound, pitch variations, and indecipherable lyrics, in spite of the digital remastering. For sound comparison, the producers have repeated three tracks in the "original, non-restored sound." I also appreciate their including alternate takes from later recordings when appropriate.

Because of its sound quality, (it was, after all, recorded in 1935), this recording probably won't win a lot of fans. In spite of that, it does have its moments: "Dinner Napkins," a hilarious sketch with Beatrice Lillie, Reginald Gardiner, Eddie Foy, Jr., and James MacColl; Ms. Lillie gives "Paree" her considerable "all;" "You May Be Far Away from Me" is Ms. Lillie and Mr. Gardiner's amusing parody of `Brief Encounter; and Ms. Lillie's delivery of "Get Yourself a Geisha" is beyond compare, even though some of the lyrics might be considered offensive by today's standards. Also included is a radio sketch, "Just a Gigolo," with Bing Crosby and Tallulah Bankhead, which perhaps is included because a recording of the original "Gigolo Business" sketch wasn't available. Incidentally, "Just a Gigolo" occupies track 20 on the disc, although the jacket lists only 19 selections.
