John Raitt possessed one of the most iconic voices in Broadway history. In a career that crossed seven decades and encompassed every aspect of entertainment, his legacy is unmatched. Stage Door's 'Original Album Series' collates four of John Raitt's original studio albums recorded between 1955-1960.

The set opens with 'Highlights Of Broadway', originally released in 1955, the album appropriately opens with a powerful rendering of the 'Soliloquy' from 'Carousel', recorded a decade after Raitt first originated the song on Broadway. The album features a selection of the most popular Broadway standards from the 1940s and 50s, including songs from 'Finian's Rainbow', 'Kiss Me, Kate', 'Kismet' and more. The compilation continues with Raitt's 1956 Latin inspired offering 'Mediterranean Magic'; an album Billboard described as a "prolonged ear treat" and "a natural for devotees to the Latin romance and heartbreak school of listening". In 1958, Raitt recorded the folk themed collection 'Under Open Skies' which included an eclectic repertoire, drawing on stirring folk ballads like 'Sail Ho!' and 'El Bandido' to Broadway numbers from 'Carousel' and 'Paint Your Wagon'. Concluding the 'Original Album Series' is Raitt's 1960 studio album 'Songs The Kids Brought Home From Camp' which, as the title suggests, features an entertaining and spirited trawl through popular and memorable "sing-a-long" camp song favourites. The 'Original Album Series' 2CD set is further enhanced with a wealth of bonus material, including selections from Raitt's stunning 1969 studio album 'Today' and a 1962 recording collaboration with jazz musician Lionel Hampton.
