There's a CD that's a live recording of ''The Broadway Musicals of 1964,'' Scott Siegel's acclaimed 2002 concert salute to that season at Town Hall. With Tom Andersen, Liz Callaway, Barbara Fasano, Alix Korey, Sharon McNight, Craig Rubano, and Steven Brinberg as Barbra Streisand and Richard Skipper as Carol Channing.

The CD includes tunes from the most celebrated shows of that time, plus Andersen's remarkable rendition of ''Anyone Can Whistle.'' But it's got its share of obscurities: ''The Richest Man in Town,'' cut from ''Fidddler''; ''Ciumachella'' from ''Rugantino,'' and premiere recordings of songs from ''Something More!,'' Marilyn and Alan Bergman's first Broadway musical.
