Julie Andrews & Carol Burnett: The CBS TelevisionCD
Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett were on the verge of becoming superstars when they came together for the first of their concert evenings at Carnegie Hall in the spring of 1962. The stars rehearsed for two weeks before the taping of the show and were surrounded by many other talented people who went on to make a name for themselves including director Joe Hamilton (whom Burnett married a year later), writer Mike Nichols and music director Irwin Kostal, who would conduct the score of Andrews Oscar-winning film debut MARY POPPINS and win an Oscar himself for THE SOUND OF MUSIC. The audience loved the show and the album, earning Burnett a second Emmy Award for her performance. Andrews and Burnett would reunite at Lincoln Center for their second concert special which was broadcast live on CBS in 1971. The material again showcased the distinctive talents of both women and includes one of the most remarkable medleys in history in which the two sprint through forty-six notable songs that had been written since their previous concert special. The album was released in 1971 using the monaural soundtrack from the broadcast. LIVE AT LINCOLN CENTER has been newly re-mastered and is available for the first time on CD.
