This deluxe edition of Funny Girl ’s original cast album, not only celebrates a history-making Broadway show, it also reminds us of a time, albeit a transitional one, when the Great White Way was still the musical locomotive delivering endless supplies of hit show tunes the whole world could hum. Although courtesy of the Beatles, rock ’n’ roll was suddenly emerging from its post-army Elvis stupor, Broadway musicals (and their resultant movie-musicals) continued to reign as the most dependable provider of quality songs.

This is part of the history of who she was then and who she is now. Her style may

She has made her mark time and time again.
