  1. The only one I look forward to is Forbidden Broadway as I have the entire series so far. This may be the last as it was not successful. I would love to have a version of numbers from past years that were never recorded before.

  2. For me the best track of the new FORBIDDEN BROADWAY is the one about THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY. There's also a good idea in the recording, Liza Minnelli as Fraulein Schneider.
