I now own both recordings of this show, and without any doubt, find this recording the most preferable. The vocal qualities of all three leading players are superlative. It is unfortunate that Broadway audiences did not get to experience this musicalisation of "The Rainmaker." Inga Swenson is an actress who has been missed by American audiences. I understand she sustained an ankle injury that caused the show to fold shortly after opening. Her characterization comes through radiantly on the CD. She registers so many emotions it would be impossible to list them all here. The other performances also contain fire and brilliance. The men's voices (lyric baritones) are full of character and life as well.
The newer recording is a disappointment. The two gentlemen are very fine, but Ms. Ziemba, at present one of Broadway's darlings, is vocally not suited for the role. The piece is written for a lyric Soprano. She is a belter, and her singing lacks head voice -- a definite requirement for the part of Lizzie. I looked forward to hearing the entire score, but after listening to the first disc, I quickly put on the RCA original cast and was reintroduced to expressive, lyrical singing that told a story via vocal quality. I suggest the Original Recording hands down to anyone.

1963's 110 In The Shade has one of the most glorious overtures in Broadway history. The musicalization of librettist Richard Nash's play the Rainmaker boasts terrific music by Schmidt and Jones(the Fantasticks, I Do! I Do!, Celebration, Road Side, etc)who wrote a plethora of songs for the show(over 100!)and used just 16. Their work ranks up there with Loesser, Styne, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Kander and Ebb, Lerner and Loewe and others of their stature. Inga Swenson(New Faces of 1956, Baker Street, etc) stars as the spinster Lizzie and beautifully sings the wistful "Is It Really Me?", the hopeful "A Man And A Woman" the contentious duet with Robert Horton as Starbuck "You're Not Foolin' Me" and the emotional 1st Act finale, the desolate "Old Maid". Swenson is ably supported by Stephen Douglass(Make A Wish, Golden Apple, Damn Yankees, Show Boat-'66 revival, etc) as File along with Will Geer, Steve Roland, Scooter Teague(West Side Story), Lesley Ann Warren(Drat The Cat!, Victor/Victoria the film, etc) and a solid ensemble who mezmerize with "It's Gonna Be Another Hot Day", "The Hungry Men", "Everything Beautiful Happens At Night" and "Wonderful Music". I was much too young to see the original, however, I was lucky enough to see the New York City Opera production at the New York State Theater at Lincoln Center with the solid Richard Muenz(who was also wonderful in NYCO's Pajama Game and Camelot revival with Richard Burton) and Karen Ziemba. In my mind, it stands as a close second to the original. There is also a fine two cd recording with Ron Raines, Muenz and Ziemba on Jay Records. The most recent revival pales in comparison to all of the previously mentioned! Now if we can only get the 1967 London Cast recording with an altered score and their musical Philemon on cd!

I only wish I could have seen the show. Have to be content with this album. There is little fault with this album. The real test of an album is how often you listen to it. I listen to this one often. Being a fan of the 'Rainmaker" makes this album especially enjoyable for me. I've never seen Inga Swenson but her voice and energy are infectious. Way above average show album.

I had no idea Robert Horton and Inga Swenson could sing so well. And I would never have imagined Will Geer in a musical. I've always loved the story, but the music, arrangements and delivery make it ever so much more enjoyable. Thankfully, we have these recordings to stay with us forever.

This show ran a bit shorter than Schmidt and Jone's Fantasticks- but it was a better show. Nash's Rainmaker was a perfect vehicle for a musical and Inga Swenson as Lizzie was brilliant. It's a shame she only did a few shows before reaching fame on TV in Benson. Now, Robert Horton was already famous on TV when he did this show and afterwards he happily returned (never to try singing again). The supporting cast was great, particularly Stephen Douglass.
Don't miss this great score.

With classic Broadway musicals, nothing quite measures up to the sound of the original cast. There might be revivals, and later recordings in more favorable sonic conditions, but the elan of Broadway at the mid-20th century is a sound for all time. That sound is here, loaded with melody, humor, and all-round exhilaration. This is Broadway gold--and, for being relatively unknown, perhaps more precious than other similar scores you're likely to know. If you love classic Broadway, you'll fall hard for this one. Get it while you can.
