AllMusic Review by

The Brooklyn Academy of Music staged concert versions of these two Gershwin political musicals of the 30s, one a sequel of the other, with Michael Tilson Thomas as music director and conductor and a cast including Maureen McGovern, Larry Kert, and Jack Gilford. The result is an exquisite recording that restores valuable Gershwin material to the record racks.
