Description

Following the critically acclaimed release of 'Lost West End' in 2015, an album highlighted in The Sunday Times as an "Essential New Release", Stage Door Records continue the series with 'Lost West End 2'. The album features a glittering ensemble of West End vocalists including Hannah Waddingham, Michael Crawford, Colm Wilkinson and Paul Jones.

Ranging from 1970 to 2008, all the musicals featured had relatively short London residencies and although they weren't always met with critical praise, they nevertheless contain interesting, memorable scores and performances that deserve to be heard.

The diverse selection of shows featured include the 1977 Cameron Mackintosh produced musical revue 'After Shave', 'Fire Angel' a rock opera adaptation of Shakespeare's 'The Merchant of Venice', 'Hair' composer Galt MacDermot's 'Isabel's A Jezebel' and musical biographies of Sir Francis Drake ('Drake's Dream), Napoleon Bonaparte ('Napoleon'), Winston Churchill ('Winnie') and James Dean ('Dean').

Although the shows didn't last, their music lives on and this collection affirms that the musicals featured are well worth rediscovering.
