Stage Door Records Launch 'Lost Broadway' Album Series


Stage Door Records Launch 'Lost Broadway' Album Series

Following the critically acclaimed 'Lost West End' album series, Stage Door Records present the launch of 'Lost Broadway', a new series of albums that will focus on celebrating Broadway's forgotten and obscure musicals. With each album dedicated to specific years in Broadway history, 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 deserve not to be forgotten.

Presented as a Deluxe 2CD Set, 'Lost Broadway 1961' features 57 tracks including over 20 tracks appearing on CD for the very 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 (including 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. The 'Lost Broadway 1961' featured musicals are '13 Daughters', 'The Conquering Hero', '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.

Commenting on the new 'Lost Broadway' album series, Tim Hutton of Stage Door Records said:

"In 2015 we released the album 'Lost West End', originally intended as a singular album release, we were overwhelmed by the response to the collection from like minded musical theatre collectors who share our drive to preserve and celebrate forgotten musicals of the past. Based on the response to this first album, a 'Lost West End' series was launched which evolved into five unique volumes celebrating London's forgotten musicals across the decades. We're thrilled to begin a new chapter in Stage Door's 'Lost Musicals' series, now focusing on the forgotten and obscure works from the Broadway stage. The new 'Lost Broadway' series will see each individual album dedicated to specific years in the Broadway calendar, launching with 'Lost Broadway 1961' on May 31st. Work has already begun on future volumes in this exciting new series which will feature previously unavailable recordings of songs from such forgotten Broadway musicals as 'Rumple', 'Shangri-La', 'The Vamp', 'Copper And Brass', 'Beg Borrow Or Steal', 'Nowhere To Go But Up' and many more."

'Lost Broadway 1961' is released on May 31st 2019
