One of the best Broadway scores ever
Raisin is one of those shows that deserves a revival. Moving, touching, funny, and powerful are some of the words that come to mind in describing this astonishing show. Although Raisin in the Sun is perfect as it is, the music bumps it up another level. Every performer in this show had moments to shine and they did it so well. Songs that are particular standouts: A Whole Lot of Sunshine, Sweet Time, You Done Right, Measure the Valley. Brilliant!
Buy this just for "It's A Deal" alone!!!
Seriously. "It's A Deal" is one of those 70's funky/soul songs that randomly pop up in musicals from the 1970's. If you like Richie's part ("Gimme the ball...") from A CHORUS LINE or "Night Letter" from TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA you will love this one!!!
Great Musical - Great Album
If you loved the play, A Raisin In the Sun and the classic movie with Sidney Poitier, this version will make your heart soar. The music and songs as performed by this incredible cast truly takes this still relevant drama to new heights. You will dance, shout and cry. It is a classic that I would love see in a movie or back on Broadway.
