'The Good Old Bad Old Days' was Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse's third musical written for the stage and originally intended as a Broadway comeback for Newley after several years of performing his one man show in Las Vegas.

Written between 1971-1972, the musical conceived as "a simple little saga about Man, Life, Death, God, and the Devil, with the History of the World thrown in?" finally found a home at London's Prince Of Wales Theatre, opening on December 20th and running for a total of 309 performances.

Although the show received mixed reviews, the score is considered to be one of the most accomplished musical works Newley and Bricusse created during their illustrious writing partnership. Songs from the show were subsequently recorded by the likes of Sammy Davis Jnr, Tony Bennett, Frankie Vaughan and Petula Clark.
