Product Description
This disc devoted to the music of Richard Addinsell begins with the original London cast recording of the hugely successful 1958 intimate revue LIVING FOR PLEASURE. Arthur Macrae’s witty and sometimes wicked lyrics provide Addinsell with a perfect platform for his skills as a theatre composer, including the classic ‘tart with a heart of gold’ number for its star Dora Bryan, heard here in a variety of songs and sketches, and expertly crafted songs for the show’s chanteuse, golden-voiced Janie Marden. The rare British studio recording of excerpts from Addinsell’s score to accompany Lewis Carroll’s timeless classic ALICEstories perfectly complements our already available Broadway cast recording of 1947. This enchanting version features Juliet Mills as Alice, David Nixon and Charlie Drake. There are several songs not heard on the Broadway recording. Altogether a wonderful find!
