FIRST LISTEN: I've Always Had A Dream From The Upcoming LOST WEST END 2 Album

Stage Door Records are pleased to make available a "first listen" of the complete track 'I've Always Had A Dream' from the forthcoming album 'LOST WEST END 2'. The song is from the 1977 musical 'Drake's Dream' which opened at the Shaftesbury Theatre on December 7th 1977 and ran for 82 performances. The track is performed by leading actor / singer (and former lead vocalist of Manfred Mann) Paul Jones.

LOST WEST END 2 celebrates London's forgotten musicals and brings together over 20 unique 'lost' West End productions on one album. The collection reflects nearly 40 years of musicals that have come and gone from the West End, showcasing these unique theatrical works. 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.
