AllMusic Review by

As part of Decca Broadway's Composers on Broadway series, 11 of Irving Berlin's classics are spotlighted. Excerpts from Annie Get Your Gun, Call Me Madam, As Thousands Cheer, This Is the Army, and a "Patriotic Medley" round out the set. Top-notch performances by Ethel Merman, Patti Lu Pone, Dick Haymes, and the composer himself on "Oh, How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning" make this set of Irving Berlin standards an excellent primer for the curious listener.
