An unforgettable voice
Hearing Placido Domingo sing some of my favorite songs is a wonderful experience. I listen to this CD over and over
The Roar Of The Greasepaint - The Smell Of The Crowd (1965 Original Broadway Cast)
, Anthony Newley
RCA Victor Broadway, 1990
The perfect musical for these times
One reviewer asked why ROAR is rarely revived. I think its time has come after years of ruinous economic policies and government for the rich in the United States. American audiences should be very receptive now to this brilliant musical. Anthony Newley will be smiling from above.
Scrooge: The Musical (1992 Birmingham Cast)
Jay Records, 1997
A Christmas treat from Mr Scrooge.
It has become a tradition in my house to put this CD on first thing every Christmas morning , then we know that the celebrations can begin! If you have actually seen Newley's riveting performance as Scrooge you will enjoy it even more , but it stands up anyway as a great slice of British theatre. Stage cast recordings are not meant to have the sophisticated studio enhancements of film ...
Gnp Crescendo, 1995
Newley at his best
This is Newley in recent years, showing all the skills gained from so many years in the business. There are great new versions of Newley standards such as "The Candy Man" and "What Kind of Fool" and also some new songs, showing that he could still write a quality song at that stage in his life. At times the arrangements are not up to the vocal power of Mr Newley, however on the whole this was a ...
Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory: Music From The Original Soundtrack Of The Paramount Picture
Hip-O Records, 1996
I was so happy to have found and received this c.d.. When I was a kid, I recorded this soundtrack from t.v. onto a reel to real and memorized all the songs. I couldn't believe that I could even find it on c.d. and was amazed to have found it and been able to buy it for my music collection.

Stop the World - I Want to Get Off (1962 Original Broadway Cast)
Decca Broadway, 2001
Great musical with great classic songs
This Bricusse-Newley musical is still fresh today. Some of the songs are classic. They include "What Kind of Fool am I" and "Once in a Lifetime". Newley's voice and vocal range was at its height when this album was recorded. If you like the music in this show then you will also like the music from "Roar of the Greasepaint, Smell of the Crowd".
Broadway - The American Musical (PBS Series)
George M. Cohan
Fabulous for any Broadway-lover
Packs into 5 CD's a sampling of Broadway tunes from the 20's thru (almost) today, mostly from original cast recordings. Includes not just well-known hits, but also some lesser-known gems. Sound quality is first rate, booklet is informative too. Have given this as a gift to several friends with rave reviews.
Stop The World I Want To Get Off! (1995 London Studio Cast)
Jay Records, 1996
Clearly I'm in the minority here, but I really like this recording. Mike Holoway and Louise Gold don't equal the brilliant and authoritative performances of Newley and Quayle, but they do very, very well. I'm puzzled by the hostility that the performances of Holoway and Gold have provoked from most of the other reviewers. And I would think that some of the Newley lovers would be pleased that ...

Goldfinger: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Best James Bond Soundtrack
Goldfinger has to be the best James Bond soundtrack. It not only has the best James Bond Theme song but the score is one of the best. They don't compose them like this any more. It brings back fond memories.
Polygram UK, 2001
Anthony Newley's classic early hits!
Before "Stop the World" and "The Roar of the Greasepaint", before "Dr Dolittle" and "Hieronymus Merkin", Anthony Newley was a theatrical revue and British character actor. It was from his starring role in "Idle On Parade" that Newley was given the opportunity to sing on film and record for the first time. The public took him to their hearts and very soon Newley had a string of chart hits first in ...
Li'l Abner & Broadway Bouquet
Gene de Paul
classic arrangements by the classic gentlemen ~ Percy Faith
Two albums from the Columbia Records people blending different decades "Li'l Abner" (originally released CL 955 in 1956) and "Broadway Bouquet" (originally released LS 9156 in 1965), sharing the unmistakable style of the "Percy Faith Touch" ~ you know in an instant you're in for the best of the best ~ Duke Ellington was so taken with Faith's arrangements, that he would give anything to be able to ...
One of the best-loved entertainers to come out of the UK in the 1960s, Anthony Newley has recently enjoyed a resurgence of interest, due in no small part to the likes of Jonathan Ross playing his music on Radio 2. Collaborating with composer Leslie Bricusse, he lent his lyrical skills to musical scores such as Dr Doolittle, Stop The World I Want To Get Off and The Roar Of The Greasepaint, as well as starring in films such as David Lean's classic ...

Newley Discovered Unissued
Stage Door, 2010
This is a fascinating idea for a CD -- what you'll find here are the demo recordings submitted to the producers and studios before the productions had begun. In the case of MERKIN, those familiar with the score will notice that some of the lyrics are different than their final versions. Lyricist Herbert Kretzmer has said that Newley wrote his version of the songs (both music and lyrics) and ...
