4.0 out of 5 stars Fine voices make this one a winner., January 25, 2000
This review is from: Camelot (Audio CD)
Though I never saw this show on Broadway, this cast album gives me a very good impression. The words and music really are perfectly entwined, and the songs are really good, much more memorable than they were when sung in the film, (though the film, IMHO, is still pretty good). What's really great about this recording is the great voices you hear singing these songs. Julie Andrews is surprisingly operetic as Guenevere, but nevertheless is by turns, vibrant, lusty, and sad, and is always good. Robert Goulet as Lancelot has a robust voice that comes in handy during "C'est Moi" and makes "If Ever I Would Leave You," a beautiful song anyway, a joy to listen to. Roddy McDowell as Mordred sparks the album with his one song, "The Seven Deadly Virtues." You even get to hear John Cullum; he's one of the knights in "Then You May Take Me to the Fair." As for Richard Burton's Arthur, he does struggle a bit at first, talk-singing "I Wonder What the King Is Doing Tonight" and the first part of "Camelot" a bit shakily. However, he pulls himself together to give a great performance of "How to Handle a Woman" and, though he goes right back to talking, is still powerful in the final reprise of "Camelot."
We truly shouldn't let this show be forgot, or this cast album. It was one brief shining moment of many in Broadway's history.
