Robert Goulet- On Broadway Vol 2

I know.  I know.  I said I was burned out on Broadway.  Well this is still true.  Yet I decided to slip this one in here that I picked up for $3.  Either you love him or you loathe him (Will Ferrell) but regardless, the man had talent.  Well I guess that statement really depends if you are on the love or loathe side.

Myself, I am on the love side.  The Canadian who burst onto the US scene in Camelot, has a smooth voice as well as delivery. He was also one Oscar short of completing the ever coveted EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony). But what ultimate tribute can one have than to have the American Mustache Institute name a trophy in memorial after you, The Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year, given to the person who best represents or contributes to the mustached community for the year.  Notice I said person and was not gender specific.

This record, came out in 1967.  As the title would suggest, this is his second album of various Broadway tunes.  Some pretty good numbers on here.  Works include such productions as Cabaret, Man of La Mancha, Mame, Brigadoon, and I Do, I Do.

For a sample, I went with one that is one of my favorites that I spoke of last month but did not post, from Man of La Mancha, “The Impossible Dream”.

Would of preferred more songs that I knew or really liked but good enough record for me, satisfactory.
