Product Description
An important addition to the discography of one of Britain's most eminent musical theatre composers, this disc includes the first reissue of the complete LP of 'The Music of Julian Slade' with its songs from early Julian Slade works, sung by Eleanor Drew, James Cairncross, Harry Dawson, John Neville and Jane Wenham. The selection from his operetta THE DUENNA,
a setting of the Richard Brinsley Sheridan libretto, has Slade at his most inspired. The disc concludes with the premiere publication of the original cast recording of Slade's Cambridge musical LADY MAY, featuring Anne Percival-Smith, Angus Mackay and Slade himself. These unique historical recordings have been restored by Alan Bunting, enabling us to hear for the first time a happy score that bears Slade's authentic and individual freshness.

With: Eleanor Drew, John Neville, Anne Percival-Smith, Angus Mackay
