Editorial Reviews

It ran well over 1,000 times, won the Tony for Best Musical and is still a perennial favorite-it's 1954's The Pajama Game and this is its original cast recording! Its standards Hey There and Hernando's Hideaway join Steam Heat; I'm Not at All in Love , and more.

Format:Audio CD
The ever-popular 1954 Broadway cast album of THE PAJAMA GAME is back once again - this disc is exactly the same as the previous 1999 Broadway Masterworks pressing, but in a new, "eco-pack" cardboard sleeve. Arguably the most popular and beloved work from the songwriting team of Richard Adler and Jerry Ross ("Damn Yankees"), THE PAJAMA GAME is based on Richard Bissell's novel "7 1/2 Cents".

The employees of the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory cry "revolution" when their request for a pay increase falls on deaf ears. Caught in the eye of the storm are grievance committee head Babe Williams (Janis Paige), newly-arrived, newly-appointed superintendent Sid Sorokin (John Raitt), and their unexpected love affair...

Nothing can ever top this album for sheer excitement and brilliance. It's a total joy from Overture to Finale. Whilst she'll clearly never compete with the singing finesse of Doris Day (who went on to replace her in the movie version), Janis Paige is perfect as Babe and her performance still rings true with sassy comedy and spirit--her "I'm Not At All in Love" is totally infectious. John Raitt stridantly croons the show's signature hit ballad "Hey There" with wonderful style--another great Broadway figure we'll never see the likes of again.

Carol Haney, Buzz Miller and Peter Gennaro lead the quirky "Steam Heat", Eddie Foy Jr. and Reta Shaw perform the delightful soft-shoe "I'll Never Be Jealous Again"; and the entire company comes together to celebrate "Once-a-Year Day". Classic Broadway, all the way! It doesn't get much better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific "Golden Age" Musical September 21, 2011
By Ralph
Format:Audio CD
This original Broadway Cast recording is terrific. Great music and lyrics with great Broadway stars. One of the best things is hearing the score performed with a full Broadway orchestra instead of the pared down orchestra of today. This recording has all the feel of a live performance. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite Broadway soundtracks! July 24, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"The Pajama Game"--This CD carries the same cover as the original LP recording and "it's" all there: great sound, familiar voices, superb cast and wonderful music. How wonderful, hearing John Raitt's powerful rendering of "A New Town...Is A Blue Town!"
'Difficult to pick out favorites, but "Small Talk" is another one of mine!

Ah.......such memories this soundtrack evokes! The Fabulous Fifties--my 'golden' era. :)

I was 19 years old when I saw Pajama Game
preview in Boston before opening in NYC,
it was a hit in NYC and a great show.
58 years later I still enjoy The Pajama Game.
