...then why are Richard Keel, Anne Blythe, and Vic Damone listed as "performers" in the description of this what is called "Kismet 1955 MGM Film Sountrack." If this is, indeed, the soundtrack, then the original soundtrack singers should be singing, i.e., Keel, Blythe, and Damone. Some of the reviewers here state that other people are singing the songs. How can that be if this claims to be the 1955 MGM Film Soundtrack as described in the item description. I have yet to receive this product and will update my review when I have time to review the item when I receive it. I have, nonetheless, given a 5-star review based upon the Borodin song adaptation alone. I hope when I receive this CD that it is, in fact, Keel, Blythe, and Damone performing the songs. If it's not, then I suppose I'll have to spend more and purchase the REAL soundtrack, like a reviewer here recommended. Keeping my fingers crossed.
This is not the original soundtrack score from the picture. It is a monaural recording that someone transfered from a tape or old album. I found it vastly disappointing compared to the Stereo soundtrack available with the large picture of Howard Keel on the front cover. I can't understand why this didn't pass the smell test in terms of copying but the dynamic sound separation is compressed and the range can only be described as limited.
This a beautiful rendition of a great Broadway musical. The movie version is better,I believe,than original.The seller,,Zoverstock,delivers items in a very timely manner and I should know. This is the fifth item ordered from this seller. It is an older musical but as with all great musicals it is still worth the time to listen and appreciate.
