Continuing Stage Door's line of Deluxe Edition Broadway Cast Album reissues is an expanded release of the 1958 play with music
'Say, Darling'. Based on the novel by Richard Bissell and featuring music by
Jule Styne and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, ' Say, Darling'
opened at New York's ANTA Theatre on April 3rd 1958 and ran a total of 332 performances.
Described as "a comedy about a musical", 'Say, Darling' was loosely based on the author's experiences in adapting his novel
'7 1/2 Cents' as 'The Pajama Game' and the interactions between the various creatives involved in that process. On Broadway, 'Say, Darling' starred David Wayne, Vivian Blaine
Johnny Desmond. To best showcase these original songs for the Original Cast Album, respected arranger and conductor
Sid Ramin augmented the show arrangements for a full orchestra.
Testament to the immediacy and popularity of the 'Say, Darling' songs are
the wealth of pop covers and instrumentals that were recorded from the score. All these cover recordings have been compiled and presented on a Bonus Disc and include tracks by such
artists as Peggy Lee, Dinah Shore, Blossom Dearie, Perry Como and Tony
Martin. The 'Say, Darling' Deluxe Edition is further complemented with detailed sleeve notes by Broadway historian
