Earphones are packed and ready to be shipped out in the morning. I don’t want to spend the $170 to replace them, but it’s cheaper than being a new pair at $300 plus. It’s time they’ve been broken for almost three months now.
Joy Hermalyn as Fruma Sarah in the 2004 Revival Cast Recording of Fiddler on the Roof
Talk about technique. Joy Hermalyn has it. Listen to her natural “old style Belt/legit Belt” happening in this. It is beautiful. I’m obsessed. Her voice and Belt is so thick and meaty. Sadly, it is something we don’t get to hear too often these days. She also flips stunningly and gets this wonderful lyric tone to her. For the technique side of her voice listen to how well "NIGHT" is Belted, I would say. It has a slight mix to it, but I’d call it a “true” Belt. It’s stunning. You can imagine the smile and all the teeth showing she’s using to get the placement and sound of it. And the spin on it. WOW. It sounds like no effort is being used at all. Brava. I’m obsessed all over with her and her voice. Sadly I can’t find more recordings of her in anything. But really, what a beautiful Belt she has. Why can’t more people have this sound and tone to them these days?
I’m The Greatest Star - Barbara Streisand’s Final Broadway Performance - December 26, 1965 -Soundboard
I think it’s time to finally share this gem. Ladies and gentleman this is the original Fanny and how the song is sung. With Glee’s version released there will soon be love and obsession I’m guessing. Just remember Barbra was long before Glee, the movie, and others. Enjoy this oldie yet brilliant recording and performance.
