Most Happy Fella 1980 on DVD
6 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I can't thank MatsonMan, Jim Berg, enough for transferring the rare 1980 PSB broadcast of The Most Happy Fella to his publicly available DVD set. It is a very difficult show to mount and perform...it demands top standard singers. Having a proper New York theatrical performance of this classic to watch any time one wishes is a real 'mitzvah' from Jim.

Loesser really is some composer and word smith. He's not underrated because he is an acknowledged great. Guys and Dolls is regularly considered the apex of musicals, such is its excellence on every level. But what's not always appreciated is that his songwriting has a depth that goes beyond normal. It really is summed up by the title 'My Heart Is So Full Of You'. Loesser's heart and soul were rich in emotions he knew every one felt and he was conscious these feelings were not always satisfied in the hearts of many an ordinary person...love, confidence, company, respect of peers, job satisfaction, security, kindness. He knew the human condition like no other songwriter and he articulated this awareness into songs of utter grace and beauty, wit and rhythm.

Frank Loesser, the songwriter supreme.
