    This is an essential reference book for lovers of musical theater music. It contains over 1,000 short but insightful and well-reasoned reviews of recordings of cast albums and soundtracks. It smartly doesn't relegate itself to recordings in print, but reviews recordings dating back to the '30s. One of the best ways I've benefited from this book was discovering recordings I didn't know existed and are now on my want list.

It contains over 1,000 short but insightful and well-reasoned reviews of recordings of cast albums and soundtracks. It smartly doesn't relegate itself to recordings in print, but reviews recordings dating back to the '30s. One of the best ways I've benefited from this book was discovering recordings I didn't know existed and are now on my want list. It also covers shows every bit as mind-boggling and ill-conceived as Spider-Man written by Bono; Flowers for Algernon and Night of the Hunter, for example! The book is not complete. I own several recordings of Noel Coward shows, for example, not listed. The book also could have been better if it had stepped outside the strict boundary of show recordings and included demo recordings and various concert recordings of essential composers like Cole Porter, Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter and Kurt Weill. As an easy to use and read reference which covers many, if not most show recordings, I highly recommend it.
