This recording of THE MOST HAPPY FELLA is absolutely complete. Not only complete but it includes over 30 minutes of cut material not previously heard. The Bonus Tracks are: "House and Garden", "Tony and Marie/Nobody's Gonna Love You Like I Love You", "Eyes Like a Stranger", "It Is Fair?/Warm All Over/Old People Gotta Sit Dere An' Die", I'll Buy Everybody a Beer" and "Wanting to Be Wanted" The reason for the cut was that the original actress who sang the role of Marie could not sing the music, but with the great opera/musical star, Nancy Shade who sings the role on JAY's complete recording, the glorious music have been recorded to stunning perfection for the first time.

Opera legend Louis Quilico, recognised as one of the world's greatest Rigolettos takes on the taxing lead role of Tony, one which he sang to great acclaim at the New York City Opera. When the original production first opened on Broadway, Mrs. Loesser (Jo Sullivan) sang the role of Rosabella and now over 45 years later, her daughter, the Broadway star Emily Loesser takes on the same role for the recording. This all star cast recording includes Tony award winners as Karen Ziemba, Richard Muenz and Don Stephenson. John Owen Edwards conducted The National Symphony Orchestra.

The score is jam packed with hit songs such as "Standing on the Corner", "Joey, Joey, Joey", "Big D", "My heart is so full of you", "Somebody somewhere", "Happy to make your acquaintence" and "Rosabella" among others.
