Editorial Reviews:
Unless you have a sentimental attachment to the familiar voices of the original Broadway cast or movie soundtrack, the 1957 studio recording of Brigadoon might just become your favorite. It's exceptionally well cast, for starters, especially the great Jack Cassidy as the romantic lead Tommy and the woefully underrecorded powerhouse Susan Johnson as the brassy Meg. Singing sweetly opposite Cassidy is his then-wife Shirley Jones (their children included Shaun Cassidy; David was from Jack's previous marriage), fresh off her lead ingenue roles in the Oklahoma! and Carousel films, and sometimes-opera-singer Frank Poretta covers the high-tenor songs "I'll Go Home with Bonnie Jean" and "Come to Me, Bend to Me." Producer Goddard Lieberson also included choral and dance numbers to showcase more of the Lerner & Loewe score (45 minutes) than had been recorded before. Modern collectors have choices, however, and the best overall option might be John McGlinn's 1991 recording, which has even more music and is also very well sung, by Rebecca Luker and Brent Barrett. But if one has the shelf space for more than one Brigadoon, the 1957 cast is so good that it's worth picking up. --David Horiuchi
