Between 1949 and 1951, the D'Oyly Carte Company was very busy recording nine of the Gilbert & Sullivan works onto mono LPs for the Decca label (or the London, as it was known over here), with comic lead Martyn Green in all but "Trial By Jury." After he left the company, Green was supplanted by Peter Pratt, who recorded the comic lead roles in "The Sorcerer" and "Princess Ida." All of these have waited a long time to appear on CDs and several companies have taken advantage of the copyright lapse to issue them at very high prices and at least one at very budget ones.

But now I find that all of the 1949-1951 sets are available on the Avid Entertainment label as a boxed set of 10 discs (AMSC 780-789). To keep things compact, the Avid people unavoidably had to place on the same disc Act I of one opera after Act II of the one before. There is also orchestral bonus material towards the end including orchestral selections from "Pinafore" and "Yeomen of the Guard," Sullivan's salute to the dance "Overture Di Ballo," and the entire score of the G&S-based ballet "Pineapple Poll."

Green is good and even better are the bottomless basso of Richard Watson, the most famous Mikado of them all Darrell Fancourt, and the sympathetic contralto of Ella Halman. Only tenor Leonard Osborne does not come over very well on recordings, although he was very good on stage. No true "Savoyard" will want to be without this collection.

Those who are perfectly happy with less will want "Gilbert & Sullivan: Highlights and Overtures" (AMSC 800), a double-CD set in which there are 27 selections from the complete recordings and the 9 overtures, plus "Overture Di Ballo." A great starter kit to introduce newcomers to the magic of the G&S team.

This is a good collection, and for those of us who are most familiar with Martyn Green as the comic tenor, rather than his successor John Reed, it's wonderful to hear him and the cast of that generation again. Though later D'Oyly Carte recordings have been very fine, they have also included all the dialogue, and I have always found that intrusive and a bit annoying. These never did, and I'm enjoying that as well. I do have a few issues.

First, my impression is that the tempi are just a shade fast--not enough to change the pitches, but enough to shave minutes off a ten-CD set, and since I know the original recordings so well, I can be fairly certain that they were not THAT fast when the tracks were first laid down. The time between numbers can be measured in nanoseconds, which is fine, but a little disconcerting. I understand the desire to get the whole set on ten CDs, but the speed, and the fact that most of the operettas start midway through one CD and finish on the next one, are clearly decisions made for reasons having to do with marketing--not love of or appreciation for the operettas themselves. The decision to include Pineapple Poll and several orchestral numbers is a sad trade-off for the absence of the duet between Sergeant Meryll and Dame Carruthers ("Ghastly, ghastly!"), and the complete exclusion of Princess Ida, surely one of the most musically sophisticated, if lesser-known works in the canon.

I gave this set four stars, and in all honesty, half a star was probably for nostalgia value. That's not to say it's not a good set, and I have been waiting for many years for someone to reissue these old recordings, with Martyn Green, Ann Drummond-Grant, Darrell Fancourt,and others who made those early recordings so wonderful. I think that the music is fine (if fast).

I was delighted to find that these are the D'Oyly Carte recordings featuring Martyn Greene, the ones I grew up with and therefore still regard sentimentally as the "definitive" versions. Two discontents: the absence of both "The Sorcerer" and "Princess Ida." (I adhere to the opinion that "Ida" has probably the best music in the series, and several "Sorcerer" numbers rank among my favorites) and the curious arrangement of the other works. I should have preferred them arranged chronologically, especially as several of the operas are split between two disks anyway -- which could have been unavoidable to fit them all onto ten CD's. Nevertheless I feel intensely satisfied to have this as my basic G&S listening set.

Absolutely the best versions of Gilbert & Sullivan, because it is by the original company, D'Orly Carte. And the tempo is a bit slower on the ones I have listened to,(compared to later versions) which is great, because the lyrics are easier to understand. Well worth the price!

Most of the great D'Oyly Carte Opera's monaural recordings of the G & S repertoire are here, but very poorly presented. The overture of THE MIKADO ends one disc, the rest of the opera is on another disc--a decapitation! Idiotic! This is the case with most of the offerings here. It would have been much more suitable to have each opera on its own disc, even if the cost of the set is a little higher in so doing. The audience for this sort of collection is most likely G & S enthusiasts, like myself, and to put together a set like this so sloppily is an outrage to any Savoyard! Also, where is PRINCESS IDA? And where is THE SORCERER?? Enough said.

Do these recordings include DIALOG?
No, none of them include dialogue. But then again, not many D'Oyly Carte recordings of the stereo era did, too.
