1952 Studio Recording


Led by Mary Martin and Jack Cassidy, this studio recording of Rodgers and Hart’s Babes in Arms, released on March 21, 1952, features all the songs from the original Broadway hit. Fresh from her success in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific, Mary Martin was beloved by theatre audiences. Under the musical direction of Lehman Engel, she sang several of the show’s best-known songs, with support from Jack Cassidy and Mardi Bayne. John J. Maloney of The New York Times hailed the recording as “wonderful.”
