Over 50 years since Kermit Goell's 'Pocahontas' was performed in London's West End, Stage Door are pleased to present the first opportunity to hear selections from this lost theatre score. 'Pocahontas' opened at London's Lyric Theatre in November 1963, featuring music, book and lyrics by Kermit Goell and starring Anita Gillette in the title role alongside Terence Cooper playing both roles of John Smith and John Rolfe. The musical encompassed all aspects of Pocahontas' life story, from her beginnings in Virginia to her death in Gravesend in March 1617. The production first opened as 'The Princess Pocahontas' at the Glasgow Alhambra Theatre on October 8th 1963, later playing theatres in Leeds and Liverpool before transferring to London's Lyric Theatre, opening on November 14th 1963 and closing after just 12 performances. 

Recently discovered studio demos of the show, recorded in 1962 with a company of Broadway singers (under the musical direction of Jay Blackton), now make their debut on CD accompanied by a selection of piano instrumentals from the score. The tapes, which had not been played since 1963, were discovered amongst Kermit Goell's archive by his son Jonathan and have been digitally restored for this album release. As a special bonus, the CD concludes with a newly recorded interview with Anita Gillette, the star of 'Pocahontas', reflecting on her memories of the production.
