Sepia, which I have only just discovered, already has a dozen theatre-related discs on the market. While they are unlikely to turn up in your neighborhood store, they are available at Footlight, and on the Internet from www. I'm quite satisfied with the Broadway album of Wish You Were Here , mind you, but the London disc gives us the score with significantly clearer sound.
The Broadway album was one of those early RCA Victor releases, which tend to sound like they were recorded in a tunnel. The London disc was pressed only 16 months later, but in the present restoration sounds much cleaner. I'm sitting here listening to orchestral colors that I don't recall hearing before on the RCA disc. And the orchestrations are a lot of fun. Don Walker was the supervising orchestrator, but in those days he regularly farmed out a considerable amount of work as discussed in our last column, in connection with Wonderful Town.
And no wonder; Walker was credited with six musicals in Pending examination of the charts — if they still exist — I would guess that Red Ginzler did "Shopping Around" and "Flattery. Walker surely did the big ballads, including the swoopingly grand orchestration for the title song. The London actors are a far cry from the Catskills; Camp Karefree, the setting of the show, was transplanted for London to one of the Butlins holiday camps. The cast contains two surprises. Shani Wallis plays the comic soubrette Fay the role with which Sheila Bond stole the show on Broadway.
She catapulted to short-lived fame in , as Nancy in the film version of Oliver! Playing the romantic rake, singing his heart out in "Summer Afternoon" and seducing the heroine in "Relax," is of all people Christopher Hewett. The British cast is generally fine once you accept the accents, and the singers happily give us Jay Blackton's deep-voiced vocals under the baton of Cyril Ornadel. The one major weakness is Bruce Trent as the romantic lead.
The Broadway album features the young Jack Cassidy, a standout for his distinctive and strongly attractive voice. Trent sings well enough, but sounds like just another leading young man; the title song sounds significantly paler without the urgency that Cassidy brought to it. Rome and Logan added this to the show shortly after the Broadway opening.
I must say I prefer "Goodbye Love," which was axed. But "Goodbye Love" was a solo for Teddy Stern Patricia Marand , the romantic lead; with Sheila Bond attracting all the critical and audience attention, I suppose they felt they needed to bring her into the spotlight earlier on.
