Romberg's work, long a staple of stock and amateur groups, has by now pretty much disappeared — although The New Moon is said to be on the horizon at City Center.
The comedy material, such as it was, has been mostly omitted. These studio recordings were made in and respectively.
It is unclear whether these are the original orchestrations; the folks at Decca Broadway were unable to find any information on what materials were used. The performing style doesn't help; this disc — The Desert Songespecially — sounds stilted and even more old-fashioned than need be. Unlike Romberg, he eventually found a new form in which to work. A marvelous song, with an intriguing main section — the melody playing on a four-bar figure — and a compelling, highly-dramatic bridge Conrad Lieder a neat resolution.
This easily gets my vote as Romberg's best song, of a total that must be in excess of a thousand. Kitty Carlisle — back when she was just a singer, prior to marrying Moss Hart — displays a good deal of spirit.
Everyone else sounds pretty stuffy. The score is not as strong as The Desert Song or The New Moonand the show itself was highly problematic; but it's fun to listen to. To reiterate what I said at the top of this column: these Decca Broadway reissues are indispensable for operetta fans, as they rescue these songs — many of them hits in their day — from near oblivion.
Herbert was an innovator. When he was in his heyday, a generation before Romberg, his music presumably sounded as fresh and alive as Oklahoma! So, yes, the style is on the old fashioned side and the lyrics are in some cases especially creaky; but this was quality work, making the Herbert infinitely more interesting than the Romberg.
Part of this has to do with the presentation. While, again, no information is available, I would guess that the 11 selections The Vienna Theater-Konzert Orchestra - The Desert Song Babes in Toyland and the Jungle Blues - Andrew Homzy Ensemble* - King Porter Stomp : Homage To Jelly Roll Morton from The Red Mill use Herbert's original orchestrations.
Or at least, what remained of the originals after forty years of cuts and adaptations and heavy usage. The routines, at least, pretty much match what is in the original vocal score in somewhat abridged versions.
Herbert holds a place as Broadway's The Vienna Theater-Konzert Orchestra - The Desert Song important composer, but he was also the originator of the standard Broadway orchestral sound existing when Kern and Russell Bennett joined together. The Herbert disc also features two top-rate Broadway conductors, which no doubt makes a difference. Kenny Baker — who recorded One Touch of Venus for Decca in — sings all but one of the vocals on the studio recording of Babes ; Karen Kemple joins in on the girl's parts.
The strongest track on this recording is an instrumental, "The March of the Toys. I have not done a full Sigmund Romberg of pre-World War One music, but I wouldn't be surprised if "The March of the Toys" holds up better than any piece of Broadway music of its time.
A second instrumental, "The Military Ball," is similarly interesting, if not in any way exceptional. And Glen MacDonough's lyrics are tortured in places. In "Go to Sleep, Slumber Deep," the hero reassures the frightened heroine with phrases like "I can nothing see" and "soon will dawn the day.
The Red Mill was a hit of the season. It was revived highly successfully inrunning performances which is to say, twice as long as the original — and longer than the Bernstein-Comden-Green Abbott-Robbins musical On the Town.
The latter disc, featuring one of Kern's final scores and the voices of Alfred Drake and Kitty Carlisle, sounds promising. Blocking belongs on the stage, not on websites.
