So successful was Hello, Dolly! on Broadway that producer David Merrick took the bold step in 1967 of recasting the entire production with an African-American cast, led by Pearl Bailey and Cab Calloway. The powerful response inspired a second cast recording of the original production, made on November 17, 1967 in Webster Hall in New York City. Produced by George R. Marek and Andy Wiswell, the recording captures Bailey and Calloway’s infectious performances, and the cast includes Emily Yancy, Jack Crowder, WinstonRead more DeWitt Hemsley and Chris Calloway, with Saul Schechtman conducting.

Very disappointedJune 11, 2020By Donald P. (Fishkill, NY)See All My Reviews"I ordered this CD and was very disappointed to receive a different CD - Hello Dolly with Mary Martin instead of Hello Dolly with Pearl Bailey. I contacted ArkivMusic and the email from the manager stated that they were correcting my order and supposedly sending the correct CD. I have yet to receive it. This was my first order with ArkivMusic and will probably be my last!"Report Abuse
