The 2003 New York Concert Cast Recording starring Stephen Bogardus, Alex Santoriello and Diane Sutherland.
Originally an Off-Broadway success in 1966/67, this show then played London's West End in 1968/69.
For nearly forty years it has been staged in various theatres, indeed has been done around the globe, mostly in English-speaking countries.
It has been revived three times in New York, most recently in a 'concert production' at the York Theatre, in the fall of 2003 (cast members Diane Sutherland and Stephen Bogardus are featured on this recording).
It has proven to have a timeless charm and continuing relevance, a loyal following too large to be merely a 'cult' following.
The 1966 LP, now nearly impossible to find even in rare record shops, excluded much of the show's music, due to the space limitations of v inyl records.
This CD includes much more material than the Original Cast Album (over an hour of music).
25 Tracks total.
