First opened on Broadway in 1960, this show ran for nearly 900 performances and gained acclaim immediately as a hit show with such comments as John Chapman from the Daily News ..." Camelot is magnificent. It's songs are lovely and unfailingly right".
The Show really came to world-wide renown with the 1967 Hollywood Movie starring Richard Harris in the role of King Arthur. Harris made this role his own and makes the JAY recording a must with his unique voice and presence creating a definitive interpretation that few others could achieve.
This cast recording brings Camelot to life and this CD offers the only digital recording of Richard Harris in his portrayal of King Arthur.
Hit songs include:
If Ever I Would Leave You
How To Handle A Woman
