Ranging from 1976 to 2009, 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.

The diverse selection of shows featured range from epic through-sung adaptations of the classic novels ‘Gone With The Wind’, ‘The Far Pavilions’ and ‘Tess Of The D’Urbervilles’ to musical autobiographies of iconic historical figures Leonardo Da Vinci, Toulouse Lautrec and Bernadette Soubirous.

The album features a glittering ensemble of West End vocalists including; Graham Bickley, Meredith Braun, Simon Burke, David Essex, Susannah Fellows, Alexander Hanson, Angela Richards and Andrew C. Wadsworth.

Although the shows didn’t last, their music lives on and this collection affirms that the musicals featured are well worth rediscovering.
