Description

Presented as a deluxe 2CD set, 'Lost Broadway 1961' features over 55 tracks including over 20 tracks appearing on CD for the first time. The album includes a complete disc of Original Broadway Cast Recordings and a companion disc of 'Covers and Rarities', showcasing pop covers and other rare recordings from the Broadway musicals of 1961.

Following the critically acclaimed 'Lost West End' album series, Stage Door Records present the launch of 'Lost Broadway' a series of albums that will focus on celebrating Broadway's forgotten and obscure musicals. With each album dedicated to a specific year, the 'Lost Broadway' series launches with 'Lost Broadway 1961', a particularly abundant year in the Broadway calendar for musicals whose residencies were short lived but should not be forgotten.

Included on 'Lost Broadway 1961' are the musicals '13 Daughters' and 'The Conquering Hero', shows that weren't afforded a Broadway Cast Album due to their limited runs. The selections featured on 'Lost Broadway 1961' include a broad range of musical styles and genres from prolific musical theatre writers including Jerry Herman, Jule Styne, Betty Comden, Adolph Green, Noel Coward, Bob Merill and Richard Adler.

Other featured musicals include 'The Happiest Girl In The World', 'Milk And Honey', 'Subways Are For Sleeping', 'Sail Away', 'Let It Ride!', 'Donnybrook!', 'Carnival', 'The Gay Life', 'Kean' and 'Kwamina'. The album boasts a host of star performers including Elaine Stritch, Alfred Drake, Barbara Cook, Carol Lawrence, Cyril Ritchard, Sally Ann Howes, Johnny Mathis, Margaret Whiting, Dinah Shore, Gordon MacRae, Judy Garland, Robert Goulet, Doris Day, Eddie Fisher and many more.

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