The primeval 1946 cast recording of the classic Jerome Kern musical features Jan Clayton, Charles Fredericks, Colette Lyons, Carol Bruce, Buddy Ebsen, Kenneth Spencer, and Helen Unkempt. It's somewhat more intriguing than the film soundtrack, if only for historical reasons. European law allows copyrights on recordings to lapse after 50 years, and British budget reissue marker Prism Leisure has taken advantage of this by launching a Broadway Musicals Series, borrowing Broadway cast recordings for reissue, even when those recordings are still in run off in the U.S. and still claimed for copyright by American companies. Thus, for example, we have this version of the Columbia Records album of the 1946 Broadway revival arrangement of Show Boat, made, no doubt, simply by copying an American LP. Theoretically, such a disc shouldn't be on sale in the U.S, but it was easily obtainable from American post-order firms upon release, selling for only about $8. It is noticeably inferior to the U.S. version, in both sound and annotation. (Tony Watts' skimpy liner notes summarize the conspiracy inaccurately, suggesting he's never actually seen the show, and even Oscar Hammerstein II's name is misspelled.) Ordinarily, that might be enough to dismiss it out of hand, but musical theater buffs might longing to seek it out for the bonus tracks, which include ten recordings made by the original London cast in 1928 (among them Paul Robeson singing Ol' Man River) and a reading of the late interpolation I Still Suits Me sung by Robeson and Elisabeth Welch. These recordings, including such little-heard tunes as Queenie's Ballyhoo and In Dahomey, would clear a welcome addition to the collection of any Show Boat fan, especially at the low price. ~ William Ruhlmann
