 I Adore This Score October 22, 2014 By C. Callahan (Washington, DC) See All My Reviews "I was 7 in1958, so I barely remembee the show. The songs I vaguely remembered. Too bad Basil Rathbone's version of his one song was displaced. What a great album. Robert Russell Bennet's orchestrations and Dolan's work are perefect." Report Abuse
 Aladdin - Original Television Cast April 3, 2012 By Jay R. See All My Reviews "I was anxious to get this recording because somewhere between my childhood and my old age, I managed to lose the vinyl copy I enjoyed so much as a child. I was delighted with the sound quality of this CD. And, it brought back many happy memories." Report Abuse
