I especially love "Perspective," "I Don't Know His Name," "Try Me" and "Vanilla Ice Cream." I strongly recommend this CD, for I think you will have a hard time putting it back on your shelf.
P.S.: I was cast as Georg, and my fraternal twin brother played Sipos. I will never forget doing this wonderful show!!!!!!!!!
Mr. Freeman is my favorite Bway performer, and I had a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get a letter his way when he was doing an off-Broadway show in NYC. I got his response a few days ago, and he sent back a nice note and some great autographed photos! Anyway -- GET THIS CD!
Two years later and She Loves Me was back in the Boston area, this time an excellent amateur production, and I decided it was time to buy the CD. Unable to decide I bought both the original cast album starring Barbara Cook and the 1993 Broadway revival cast album.
This show requires eight good singers (7 in the shop and the waiter) all of whom have at least one solo, and amazingly both CDs have only seven good singers. Whoever plays Mr. Maraczek on the 1993 revival CD can't sing at all. He is a disaster, so one of best songs of the show (Days Gone By) is lost. In the original cast album the weak singer is Ilona. She has a squeaky mickey mouse voice, but since she has good comic inflections and timing she gets by.
The sound editor of the 1993 revival did some strange things. At the end of 'No More Candy' a male voice barks "I'll take it". Not only is this jarring, but it makes no sense as it is apparent from the lyrics that Amalia is pitching the musical candy box ("it's a little like the voice of God...") to a female customer. In the 1963 original 'No More Candy' is nicely set up by a (female) voice asking "How functional?", while the 1993 version has no setup. And 1993 has a mind boggling editing error in probably the most famous song in the show. 'Vanilla Ice Cream' is split between two tracks; its beginning tacked onto the end of 'Where's My Shoe'! Did the CD editor ever see the show?
Both CDs sound good when played on my car's auto system.Read more ›

I bought this cast recording not even having seen the show. And I can't remember why I would exactly do that.
But I love this music. Read more

This show couldn't be any more adorable. The music is diverse: touching, compelling, sweet, and hysterically funny -- everything a light musical should be. Read morePublished on March 13, 2007 by Loves Books
I first saw this production in a small community theater. That intimate feeling was something I had been hoping this album would keep. And it does! Read morePublished on March 1, 2005 by Christopher
This recording of the 1993 Broadway revival of SHE LOVES ME is a fine summation of the peerless Bock-Harnick score, though the original cast still remains definitive. Read morePublished on February 26, 2005 by Byron Kolln
I'm currently cast in a production of this show as Sipos...this is by far the best version of the show on CD. The cast can actually sing and the orchestration is a lot better. Read morePublished on February 4, 2005 by Stephen Sanders
I love this musical, I truly do. It is sweet, it is charming, it's easy to listen to. However, I think that Sally Mayes does not quite measure up to Barbara Baxley in the... Read morePublished on July 27, 2001
