BEST FINDS OF LAST YEAR
OPERATIC AUGMENTED CAPTIONS
The index below lists augmented captions for the "BEST FINDS OF LAST YEAR", CROCKS Newsletter reviews of the "OPERATIC" (includes shows) genre, which earned their "BEST FIND" stripes back then (see the CLOFO homepage).

Clicking a retailer's name invokes their corresponding product page, thereby facilitating the ordering process.

RECOMMENDED BEST FIND (1 CD)
Mention "Lerner & Loewe" (L&L) and everybody immediately thinks of what some claim to be the greatest musical of all time, My Fair Lady (1956). Song for song that's arguable.
