Stage Door present an album of selections from the George Posford and Eric Maschwitz London musicals 'Zip Goes A Million' and 'Happy Holiday'.

'Zip Goes A Million', based on the 1902 novel 'Brewster's Millions', was written as a vehicle for variety entertainer George Formby who would make his musical theatre debut in the production. Produced by theatre impresario Emile Littler, 'Zip Goes A Million' co-starred Sara Gregory and Warde Donovan and opened at London's Palace Theatre on October 20th 1951. The production was an instant hit and garnered overwhelmingly positive notices from both the critics and audiences. The writing team of Posford and Maschwitz and impresario Emile Littler collaborated on a second London musical; 'Happy Holiday'. An adaptation of the Arnold Ridley play 'The Ghost Train', 'Happy Holiday' opened at London's Palace Theatre on December 22nd 1954. The production reunited the creative team with Reg Dixon who played the lead role of Charlie Purseglove in a cast that also included Janet Brown, Marie Burke and Austin Melford. Despite the personnel involved, the production failed to emulate the success of 'Zip Goes A Million' and closed after just 31 performances. 

This collection compiles all the Original London Cast recordings from both 'Zip Goes A Million' and 'Happy Holiday' along with a number of pop covers and instrumentals from each score performed by such artists as Pearl Carr, Petula Clark, Ronnie Harris, Hutch and the Frank Barber Orchestra. As a special bonus, the disc includes selections from a live radio broadcast of 'Zip Goes A Million'.
