Editorial Reviews

Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett were on the verge of becoming superstars when they came together for the first of their concert evenings at Carnegie Hall in the spring of 1962. Andrews was already a Broadway legend, performing in The Boyfriend, My Fair Lady and Camelot, though she was not yet a household name. Burnett had yet to make the leap to her own acclaimed primetime show but was grabbing attention for her hilarious bits on CBS's The Garry Moore Show and on Broadway in Once Upon a Mattress. The audience loved the show and the album, earning Burnett a second Emmy Award for her performance.

Andrews and Burnett would reunite at Lincoln Center for their second concert special which was broadcast live on CBS in 1971. By this time Andrews had become one of the biggest movie stars in the world and Burnett was one of television's brightest stars. The material again showcased the distinctive talents of both women and includes one of the most remarkable medleys in history in which the two sprint through forty-six notable songs that had been written since their previous concert special. The album was released in 1971 using the monaural soundtrack from the broadcast. Live at Lincoln Center has been newly re-mastered and is available for the first time on CD.

Whether you viewed these CBS specials when they first aired, or like I did grew up with the vinyl album Julie and Carol at Carnegie Hall, you will enjoy hearing these two talented ladies finally digitally remastered. The best way to experience these specials would be on DVD, of course. But I will gladly take the CD's. I have been able to view the specials on You Tube and I would recommend catching them there to enhance the experience. Both are enjoyable just to listen to but you miss the many visual gags that explain the audience laughter.

Carnegie Hall has the Nausiev Ballet which makes fun of the Moysiev Dance Company known for their folk influences and who was featured on The Ed Sullivan Show. Much of the enjoyment can be gained from viewing the professional dancers and the goofy moments when the ladies join in the dance. The content of the Pratt family number is much easier to relate to with the enduring popularity of the Sound of Music. Julie taking on the "Maria" role is even funnier since she eventually played her in the movie. Ding Dong Yum Yum Yum clearly sounds like Do Re Mi. But to see the ladies dance with the male troop in Bavarian costumes and Carol as the awkward bratty female sibling adds to the fun. The Big "D" number has the sight of the ladies in cowboy outfits and as in the other numbers, excellent choreography. The liner notes indicate that Carnegie Hall was recorded on April 29, 1962 which is the date of the theatrical performance. However the vocals are clearly alternate takes when you view the program. Also the sound is in stereo with the ladies individual vocals captured in seperate channels. This seems to indicate the performance was taped twice, once for the record and once for the televison broadcast.

These albums sound pretty good for their age, the booklet and tray liner contain the original covers to both as well. The only caveat here is they were badly engineered - the track breaks as originally recorded do not match the random track breaks on this release. In other words, tracks begin after the intro or material began, or end before the fadeout. Whoever authored the track breaks just did a plain lazy job. If you play each disc straight through you'll be fine, but forget seeking individual songs or shuffle play as it will always interrupt something before its time. Of course the content from these two talented ladies is well worth having, but it does make one wish for the video.

I bought the CD of the two specials by Julie and Carol, and they are some of the most enjoyable I have heard in a long time. I also have the DVD's, but being able to listen as I drive has its advantages. First of all, Julie Andrews is one of my favorite people in the world. I have been able to follow her for years, and listening the her from more than 50 years ago is a thrill. The music is grand, the comedy continues throughout the entire specials. The two are so different, yet together they provided entertainment that will never be forgotten. I am thankful that the special were taped for us to enjoy all these years later.

Indeed, it is about time that the wonderful television soundtrack to Julie and Carol at Lincoln Center has finally been released on CD! Even better, it is paired with the classic Carnegie Hall performance from 1962 whch was previously released. I saw that concert at the Museum of Broadcasing in NYC while doing research for a book I was writing (on another subject). Having owned the album since the early seventies, I had always been curious about the visual aspects of this funny and melodic showcase for Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett. It still holds up after all these years; great entertainment is capable of this feat. Hopefully, in the near future, it will be released on DVD (or at least before I die). The Lincoln Center show was extremely funny and I remember purchasing the album a few weeks after its initial broadcast. Sadly, that record and the few I replaced it with over the years always had skips on side two, even though new. True, the visual gags are missing but even in its audio form the performances are utterly delightful; from the hilarious opening through the "Girls in the Band" (where Carol expresses her fears of her husband having an affair with Julie during a Leonard Bernstein concert)to Madam Abernall's Farewell performance (an over-the-hill ballet dancer playing a virginal young girl). The two medleys from each show cover many of the most influential popular songs of the twentieth century. In particular, I like the "History of Musical Comedy" medley from 1962 which includes an hysterical version of "A Boy Like That" from West Side Story. Do yourself a favor, buy these CDs ASAP or download them (although you won't get the photos, the interesting liner notes, or the original album cover designs.

I have always loved the original Julie and Carol at Carnegie Hall since the 1960's. I was so happy to find a reissue on CD back in 1991, and then it appeared to disappear again. So happy to see it reissued along with the second special: Julie and Carol at Lincoln Center. I only wish that the audio on the Licoln Center CD was is stereo. The mono is disappointing, but the performances are wonderful.
