It ran well over 1,000 times, won the Tony for Best Musical and is still a perennial favorite-it's 1954's The Pajama Game and this is its original cast recording! Its standards Hey There and Hernando's Hideaway join Steam Heat; I'm Not at All in Love , and more.

The employees of the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory cry "revolution" when their request for a pay increase falls on deaf ears. Caught in the eye of the storm are grievance committee head Babe Williams (Janis Paige), newly-arrived, newly-appointed superintendent Sid Sorokin (John Raitt), and their unexpected love affair...
Nothing can ever top this album for sheer excitement and brilliance. It's a total joy from Overture to Finale. Whilst she'll clearly never compete with the singing finesse of Doris Day (who went on to replace her in the movie version), Janis Paige is perfect as Babe and her performance still rings true with sassy comedy and spirit--her "I'm Not At All in Love" is totally infectious. John Raitt stridantly croons the show's signature hit ballad "Hey There" with wonderful style--another great Broadway figure we'll never see the likes of again.
Carol Haney, Buzz Miller and Peter Gennaro lead the quirky "Steam Heat", Eddie Foy Jr. and Reta Shaw perform the delightful soft-shoe "I'll Never Be Jealous Again"; and the entire company comes together to celebrate "Once-a-Year Day". Classic Broadway, all the way! It doesn't get much better than this.
'Difficult to pick out favorites, but "Small Talk" is another one of mine!
Ah.......such memories this soundtrack evokes! The Fabulous Fifties--my 'golden' era. :)
preview in Boston before opening in NYC,
it was a hit in NYC and a great show.
58 years later I still enjoy The Pajama Game.
And now, some 60 years later I am still hooked on Broadway musicals.
In our frequent car trips to DC, I find no better way to pass the time (other than by talking with my wife, of course) than by singing along while visualizing the show scene by scene.
And BTW, that first show that I saw 6 decades ago was My Fair Lady.
