Stage One How I Love You, Stage Two The Human Heart Now Available For Download


In 1996, DINK Records released a compendium of musical theater love songs from Gershwin, Sondheim, Porter, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Herman, Kern,..., with a twist. Sung between men, with no lyric alterations (including pronouns), "Stage 1 How I Love You" was, as Out Magazine described "a dream no longer deferred." Sung by five actors, Stage 1 tells the story of boy meets boy and has received critical acclaim - including Tower Records' Best Recordings of 1996.

Stage 1 How I Love You topped the Advocate magazine's Top 10 Selling CDs for 10 months. It was followed the next year with Stage 2 The Human Heart, following the same concept which proved to be an even bigger success. Vocalists include Ralph Pena, Richard True, Charlie Owens, Francis Cruz, William Reilly, Sean Ray and Michael Fawcett.

Produced for DINK Records by Joey Mendoza and Art Collins, with arrangements by Leon Ko and musically directed by RoBert Lee, both albums will finally be available for MP3 download in Apple's iTunes and worldwide on April 1, 2010.
