Stage Door are pleased to present the CD debut of two British studio cast recordings of the iconic Hollywood movie musicals 'On The Town' and the 'Broadway Melody' series. Recorded in 1959, the studio recreation of 'On The Town' represented the first time the iconic film's songs (composed by Roger Edens with lyrics by Adolph Green and Betty Comden alongside selections from Leonard Bernstein's original score) had been preserved on record. Conducted by Geoff Love, the recording features Dennis Lotis, Lionel Blair and Shane Rimmer recreating respectively the film roles played by Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly and Jules Munshin. The roles played on film by Betty Garrett and Ann Miller are sung by Stella Tanner and Noele Gordon.

The album was followed by a studio cast recording capturing songs from the various 'Broadway Melody' films ('The Broadway Melody', 'Broadway Melody of 1936', 'Broadway Rhythm'). Conducted and arranged by Tony Osborne, the recording pays homage to the timeless songs that featured in these very first Hollywood movie musicals. The performers recruited to recreate the classic songs of Arthur Freed, Nacio Herb Brown and Cole Porter include Bruce Forsyth, David Hughes, Millicent Martin and Gerry Dorsey (who would achieve fame and chart success as Engelbert Humperdinck). 

Recorded in glorious stereophonic sound, both studio cast recordings now make their debut on CD.
