Maureen McGovern: Out of This World

Out of This World is a nuanced and impassioned collection of songs by Harold Arlen, one of America’s most beloved songwriters. McGovern’s impeccably rendered interpretations include favorites from Hollywood (“Over the Rainbow” from The Wizard of Oz, “The Man That Got Away” from A Star Is Born) and Broadway (“Come Rain or Come Shine” from St. Louis Woman, “A Sleepin’ Bee” from House of Flowers), as well as less frequently heard songs like “Let’s Take a Walk Around the Block” and “Don’t Like Goodbyes.” This reissue features two new bonus tracks, the eternal standard “Let’s Fall in Love” and the rarely recorded gem “Optimistic Voices” from The Wizard of Oz.
