AllMusic Review by

A 16-track extract from MCA's four-CD Front Row Center: The Broadway Gold Box Set. If you're not the type who buys seasons ticket to the theater, this is a recommended (i.e. affordable) alternative to the box, with such perennials as "Oklahoma! Finale," "South American Way," "Dat's Love," "I Got Rhythm," "Time Heals Everything," and "There's No Tune Like a Show Tune," spanning 1939 to 1985. Performers include Carmen Miranda, Mary Martin, Ethel Merman, Pearl Bailey, Sandy Duncan, and Bernadette Peters. All selections were drawn from recordings made by Decca and other labels owned by MCA; there are even a couple of previously unreleased alternate takes.
