Why is The Fantasticks the longest running musical in theater history, at 16,000 performances and counting? To celebrate the off-Broadway masterpiece's fifth decade, Decca has upgraded and remastered the classic original cast album featuring "Law & Order" star Jerry Orbach in his former incarnation as song-and-dance man. The celebrated score for this intimate and allegorical boy-meets-girl story by lyricist Tom Jones and composer Harvey Schmidt is host to a number of timeless melodies including "Try to Remember," "They Were You," "I Can See It," and "Soon It's Gonna Rain," the last two indelibly covered by Barbra Streisand early in her career. The crisp and improved sound of this elegant reissue is a welcome opportunity to revisit an old friend, still hale and hearty, and sounding better than ever.
