    Following the critically acclaimed release of 'Lost West End' in 2015, an album highlighted in The Sunday Times as an "Essential New Release"; Stage Door Records are pleased to continue the album series with LOST WEST END 2.

    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.

    The diverse selection of shows featured include the 1977 Cameron Mackintosh produced musical revue 'After Shave', 'Fire Angel' a rock opera adaptation of Shakespeare's 'The Merchant of Venice', 'Hair' composer Galt MacDermot's 'Isabel's A Jezebel' and musical biographies of Sir Francis Drake ('Drake's Dream), Napoleon Bonaparte ('Napoleon'), Winston Churchill ('Winnie') and James Dean ('Dean')

    The 'Lost West End' musicals included are: 'Isabel's A Jezebel' (1970), 'Bordello' (1974), 'Jack The Ripper' (1974), 'Maggie' (1977), 'Dean' (1977), 'Fire Angel' (1977), 'After Shave' (1977), 'Flowers For Algernon' (1979), 'Wild Wild Women' (1982), 'Blondel' (1984), 'The Importance' (1984), 'Winnie' (1988), 'Moby Dick' (1992), 'Voyeurz' (1996), 'Boyband - The Musical' (1999), 'Casper' (1999) 'Napoleon' (2000), 'Money To Burn' (2003), 'Murderous Instincts' (2004), 'Zorro' (2008), 'Imagine This' (2008)

    The album features a glittering ensemble of West End vocalists including; Hannah Waddingham, Michael Crawford, Colm Wilkinson and Paul Jones.

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