AllMusic Review by

This is a four-CD boxed set released to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the opening of Rodgers & Hammerstein's first Broadway show, Oklahoma! It contains the original cast albums of Oklahoma!, Carousel, and The King And I, as well as an album called The Rodgers & Hammerstein Collection, featuring various artists ranging from Rosemary Clooney to Sylvia Sims singing Rodgers & Hammerstein favorites. The last is dispensable, but the three cast albums are landmarks of the music business of the '40s and '50s, as well as the Broadway theater. (All four discs are available separately.)
