 Good Old Days of 1952-New Faces April 12, 2012 By Charles R. (Carlingford, NSW) See All My Reviews "This CD of the now 60 year old revue brings back a longing for the days when a recording did not consist of blending of sounds to the detriment of the voices, which nowadays are so often drowned by the backing. Such diction and enunciation of the words of these wonderful songs are heard in all the clarity one could wish for. Eartha Kitt was the main reason for me seeing the film when it came to Australia in about 1953/4 and I rushed to buy the LP record. With many home moves in the past 60 years, the record became lost and I could not replace it. A short time ago I was on the internet seeking the the words of "Guess Who I Saw Today", which I consider one of the most poignant songs, in company with Fiddler On the Roof's "Do You Love Me?'. Suddenly a link had me in touch with ArkivMusic and I saw that there were 3 copies of the New Faces of 1952 available. Every song is a treasure and delivered with conviction. The comedy numbers of Waltzing in Venus, and Take Off the Mask are hilarious, as is The Boston Beguine. Eartha Kitt is at her best with Monotonous, and I am old enough enough to understand references to Chang Kai Chek, and the clever twist of Ike Likes Me, etc. Whilst I am sure that Eartha sang more songs in the show, I understand that there had to be some culling to give Robert and others their fair share of exposure. I am certainly a "good friend" as hoped for by the producers, and not at all grudging of the Tax Deductible girlfriend of the backing Angel. If only the film were still available, too." Report Abuse
