This is the first recording of the original score from one of Broadway's gems. “My Funny Valentine”, “The Lady Is A Tramp”, “Johnny One Note”, and “I Wish I Were In Love Again” all came from this show (when was the last time you saw a Broadway show with four hit tunes!), an affectionate and mildly satiric look at a fictional town’s adolescent population, abandoned by their parents, who are forced to fend for themselves. More than financial and amorous matters concerned them: these kids wrestled with philosophical, political, and moral issues, sang love duets about psychic phenomena and fought over principles.  (Forget about the MGM movie with JUDY and Mickey; the plot was re-written and all but two of the songs were dropped!)

“How luxurious to have one of the most luscious of Rodgers and Hart scores in its near-entirety, with original or near-original orchestrations…this Babes in Arms is a happy delivery, especially with the original sheet music design wrapped tenderly around it.” —Opera News
