In 1969, Paramount Pictures and director Franco Zeffirelli (riding high on his success with his film of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew), decided to make a musical update of the classic film Roman Holiday, and Zeffirelli invited the brothers to join the project. They wrote three songs to play for producer Dino De Laurentiis.  He loved the songs and the project was a go – until the day the studio pulled the plug.  And that was the third cancelled project.  But while the project was still a go, the brothers had the great good fortune of having the brilliant conductor, arranger, and orchestrator, Irwin Kostal, do orchestral recordings of the three songs.  But before vocals could be put on them, the ax fell.  For this CD, we took those three orchestral tracks and brought in singers to record the vocals all these years later, a Roman Holiday indeed.

And so, here are three new/old Sherman Brothers discoveries, at last unsung no more.  You are in for a real treat!
