Review of "Phonetically Speaking - And Don't Forget the Piano - Victor Borge"
Victor Borge is one of the original musical comics from yester year, who remains (unfortunately) quite unknown by the younger population of the country.This CD is a recording from a performance Victor Borge participated in many years ago. Consequently, the quality is not the most fabulous in the world - it is an atmospheric recording. This is not a disadvantage however, in my opinion, as it enables the listener to hear not only Victor and the piano well, but also brings across a lot of the audience laughter, which I feel adds significantly to the cd! You can also pick out certain words from the audience, which is significant in a couple of tracks - for example "Variations on a theme", where the audience call out composer names.
This cd would suit a few types of people. Those who love "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" and enjoy the musical rounds such as Just a Minum and One Song To The Tune Of Another will appreciate both the type of comedy Victor Borge participates in, and also the musical elements. Classical musicians with a sense of humour will also love it too, as he parodies and takes the mickey out of various composers - "Happy Birthday" by Brahms for example!This album is a wonderful part of musical comedy history, and is something every comedy lover and musician should have listened to!
