Unlike the other review, this is a recording that touches the soul of the true Broadway afficianado. Original cast recordings of musicals were not standard in the American Musical Theatre until the early 1940's. However, the London stage had been preserving original cast performances since the early 1900's. This album preserves two of the most popular operetta titles of all time - Romerg's Desert Song and New Moon.
The sound quality is poor by today's standards, but you are hearing the original London cast, usually in the original London theatre, with the original conductor and orchestrations. To a true musical buff, to hear the original interpretations is a walk in history.
We are very lucky to be able to hear Pearl London cast recordings of Desert Song, New Moon, Show Boat, Sunny, and Lido Lady. The only other archive type recordings are the historically accurate remakes by John McGlinn and Tommy Krasker. These recordings are lost to the human ear, other than the 78's in antique stores and these reissues.
So, if you appreciate the musical art form and the sense of history, you will truly appreciate this recording. If you're looking for the lush sounds and liberal interpretations of the 50's - move on - this isn't the recording for you. If Pearl is reading this - PLEASE get us some more 20's original cast recordings!

1.0 out of 5 stars Desert Song November 9, 2000
By A Customer
What a disappointment!! I remember listening to this when I was a child on a soundtrack my father had. This version sounds terrible. I don't know if its the CD or the singers that recorded this particular CD - but they've butchered the songs. The timing of the songs is TERRIBLE and they don't sound full and rich like they should. I was really disappointed. Its not worth the money.
