Notes and Editorial Reviews

Annie Get Your Gun is a 1946 musical with lyrics and music by Irving Berlin from a book by Herbert and Dorothy Fields. The story is a fictionalised version of the life of Annie Oakley (1860-1926), who was a sharpshooter from Ohio, and her husband, Frank Butler. The 1946 Broadway production was a hit, and the show had long runs in both New York and London. Songs that became hits include "There's No Business Like Show Business", "Doin' What Comes Natur'lly", "You Can't Get a Man with a Gun", "They Say It's Wonderful" and "Anything You Can Do." This Abbey Road Studios production was made in 1990. Two years later Kim Criswell headed a London West End revival at the Prince of Wales Theatre.

 Joyous, Fun-filled Musical January 11, 2014 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "This is a superbly done collection of songs from the great Broadway show Annie Get Your Gun. Featuring Thomas Hampson, Kim Criswell, the Ambrosian Chorus, and the London Sinfonietta, the recording sparkles with wit, humor, sarcasm, and emotional highs and lows in the tradition of the finest Broadway productions. Thomas Hampson brings the stature of an established opera star to the role of Frank Butler, juxtaposed by Kim Criswell's tom-boyish portrayal of Annie Oakley. While the recording is not a complete version of the entire show, there is an excellent, comprehensive synopsis of the plot, enabling the listener to associate each track logically. Any fan of high quality, thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining music, especially one who wants a break from heavy, 'serious' classical music will surely appreciate this fresh, vibrant recording from the early 1990's. Strong recommendation." Report Abuse
