Take Me BackNovember 23, 2013By Reg Jones (Hamilton, VA)See All My Reviews"Take Me Along takes me back to the good old days of Broadwat shows. Although only the title song ever climbed up the charts, the rest of the score is well worth hearing. And who wouldn't want to hear Walter Pidgeon (!) and Jackie Gleason sing? Add superlative performances by Eileen Herlie, Robert Morse and Una Merkel and you have a winner. The sound is typical for the period, a little tinny and hollow, but the voices come through beautifully."Report Abuse
