Original Cast Recordings: Oklahoma!/Carousel/The King & I/Annie Get Your Gun - The Essential Collection (2CD)

Ref: AVC933

(UK Postage Free )


Fast becoming a national institution, Elaine Paige’s Sunday afternoon radio show is the only place to hear all your favourite show tunes.
That is, until now! AVID Entertainment, (another national institution!), has a new release in its Essential Collection series, which may give Elaine a run for her money!
The Essential Broadway Shows is a superbly re-mastered 2CD set containing four complete original broadway shows from the classic 1940’s and 1950’s…. at a wonderfully low price!
The curtain goes up on CD1 with our first selection, “Oklahoma” from 1943, the first collaboration between the legendary Rodgers and Hammerstein, which ran for a remarkable 2212 performances. We continue with their second show, the wonderful “Carousel” from 1945, packed full of memorable songs which ran for a respectable 890 performances. CD2 opens with “The King And I” starring the legendary Gertrude Lawrence in her last show before her untimely death and a young up and coming performer named Yul Bryner, who would, of course go on to make the role of the King his own in the film version of 1956. Our curtain falls after the final show, a real belter starring the indomitable Ethel Merman as Annie Oakley in “Annie Get Your Gun” from 1946 which ran for 1147 performances.
Listen out for them on Elaine’s show soon!
