Melachrino On Broadway - George Melachrino

Wouldn't It Be Lovely / The Rain In Spain

Melachrino On Broadway
Selections from My Fair Lady and Other Great Show Hits
The Melachrino Orchestra
Conducted by George Melachrino
RCA Victor LPM-1307

From Billboard - February 9, 1956: Maestro puts his best foot forward in these arrangements of a dozen show tunes. Treatments are original and the sound is lush. One side is given over to seven items from "My Fair Lady." The other includes a number apiece from "Guys And Dolls," "King And I." "Damn Yankee," "Can-Can," "South Pacific," "Pajama Game" and "Carousel," Taste thruout is impeccable for sustained, fine listening. This set looks bound to click, especially with the big up-coming Melachrino promotion.
