Changing times and morality have possibly made I Love My Wife seem a bit like a museum piece now, but it certainly does not deserve to be as neglected as it seems to have become. A classic example of a 1970's small scale musical - just a few cast members, imaginative rather than lavish sets - its strengths lay in its performances and its score. At the time, its central theme of suburban wife-swapping seemed quite racy and daring although, like in that other "swinging" classic Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, the couples involved never quite go through with it. The script was very New York Jewish so there were equal helpings of guilt and sharp one-liners. Luckily, the sex is secondary to the songs which are brilliantly performed by a (then) virtually unknown cast of four. (Interesting note: The male characters were subsequently played by the Smothers Brothers!) From bouncy Cy Coleman numbers like "Hey There Good Times" and the crowd-pleasing "Everybody Today Is Turning On" to more wistful ballads like "Married Couple Seeks Married Couple" and the title song, the show provided laughs and an occasional insight into modern marriage. An enjoyable experience and a must for any serious collector of Broadway show albums.

This is one of those fun shows that came along very once in a blue moon. The musicl by the late genius Cy Coleman and lyrics by the underrated Michael Stewart. This show composed of 4 characters and a band. There was no big orchestra. But, this band had you clapping along with almost every song. The score contained more hit parade songs than any musical that season. The title song was recorded by Frank Sinatra. The other standards were HEY THERE GOOD TIMES, LOVERS ON CHRISTMAS EVE, AND SO MANY OTHERS. You will find this score hard to pt down. It is so much fun. The band won a Tony for their performance.
You will see why when you buy this little Coleman and Stewart gem.

An extremely catchy bunch of songs by the prince of "hummable" himself, Cy Coleman. The songs vary from vaudeville, to country, to 70's schmaltz pop. The c.d features performances by Tony winners Joanna Gleason and James Naughton. Once you listen to this c.d, I guarantee that you'll be humming along to "Love's Revolution" and bopping away to "Hey There, Good Times". It's Coleman, so go ahead and buy it!

This remains a fun recording of a fun show, back when you could tap your toes along with the music. Like alot of the musicals between 1977 and 1979 (ie. On The 20th Century, Theyre Playing My Song), it stood in the shadows of Annie. For its time, its plot was rather edgy, but fundamentally sweet. Lennie Baker, Ilene Graff, James Naughton, and the awesome Joanna Gleason were great - and still sound great.
