I much prefered the Bette Midler version of Gypsy. I love this musical but Ethel Merman's voice drives me crazy. I was interested to read in the liner notes that the part of Mama was written specifically for Ethel. The music related to Mama is definitely suited for her voice and adds so much to the musical as a whole but I would definitely reccomend a more current version for listening.

has been mangled (possibly by the Library's magnetic strip glued onto the disk). Many tracks unplayable.
