Following the critically acclaimed release of 'Lost West End' (2015) and 'Lost West End 2' (2016), albums acclaimed in both The Sunday Times and The Guardian, Stage Door Records continue the album series with 'Lost West End Vintage'.

'Lost West End Vintage' celebrates London's forgotten musicals of the 1940s, 50s and 60s; compiling songs from 35 West End productions and showcasing these unique theatrical works from the golden age of the British musical.

Ranging from 1948 to 1962, the selections featured include a broad range of musical styles and genres from prolific musical theatre composers including Ivor Novello, Noel Coward, Julian Slade, Sandy Wilson, Lionel Bart, Leslie Bricusse, David Heneker, Monty Norman and more.

Presented as a Deluxe Edition 2CD set; 'Lost West End Vintage' features over 50 tracks (including over 20 tracks appearing on CD for the first time) from London cast recordings to pop covers, demos, live recordings and other musical rarities. The album includes a glittering ensemble of star performers including; Pat Kirkwood, George Formby, Anna Neagle, Sally Ann Howes, Frankie Howerd, Bertice Reading, Hy Hazell, Elisabeth Welch, Jeremy Brett, Edmund Hockridge, Cliff Richard, Tommy Steele, Beatrice Lillie and Petula Clark.

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