Album Review

Originally released as a double-LP set and now on one CD, the gold-selling soundtrack album for the screen adaptation of the long-running Broadway musical Fiddler On The Roof, which became the top-grossing film of 1971, stretched out Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick’s song score with musical adaptations by conductor John Williams. There was plenty of screen dialogue, too. But the appeal of the work continued to be the wonderful songs, “Tradition,” “Matchmaker,” If I Were A Rich Man,” “To Life,” “Sunrise, Sunset,” and “Do You Love Me.” Topol, who repeated his starring performance as Tevye from the London stage version, wasn’t as funny as Zero Mostel, who created the part on Broadway, but gave it more gravity. Occasionally on the soundtrack, he sounded so tired, though, that he barely got his lines out. Happily, he nailed “If I Were A Rich Man,” which is Tevye’s real showcase number. Still, the Fiddler, Rovi
