Fine & Dandy – World Premiere Recording
The popular 1930 musical Fine And Dandy, with music by Kay Swift, lyrics by Paul James and book by Donald Ogden Stewart, finally received its first cast recording in 2004 and Carolee Carmello essayed the plum role of Nancy Ellis. It's a joy to hear Carmello take on Swift's smart, sassy, comic quasi-operetta style, and she's especially enjoyable duetting with Gavin Creel on "Let's Go Eat Worms In The Garden" and Mario Cantone on the title song.
