This is a very good recording with fine singers (not always the case in recordings of musicals).  Some very fine and reasonably well known songs (A Fellow Needs A Girl, What A Lovely Day For A Wedding).

I find Rodgers own quote quite to the point; "Of all the musicals I ever worked on that didn't quite succeed, Allegro is one I think most worthy of a second chance".
Thank you for the info about it.  I had never heard of it before and noticed on the front cover that it said "First Complete Recording", so was guessing that this was a work which they hadn't published before.

Their first really great album. Bursting into the scene as groundbreaking songwriters.
