THE SHOW TIME SERIES EP COLLECTION - VOLUME TWO (STAGE 9084)

Stage Door are pleased to present the second volume of the "Show Time" Series EP Collection. To be issued across 3 albums, the collection compiles all 16 EPs which formed the "Show Time" Series as recorded and released by RCA Victor in 1953. 

The 16 part "Show Time" Series was a recording initiative by RCA Victor to recreate highlights from a diverse selection of Broadway musicals, revues and operettas from the first half of the 20th century. The series featured a host of Broadway star performers, many of whom introduced their songs in the original stage productions. RCA Victor also enlisted Broadway's finest musical directors (including Jay Blackton, Lehman Engel and Milton Rosentock) to conduct the orchestra and chorus on the recordings.

The second Volume in the series includes selections from 'Mademoiselle Modiste', 'Naughty Marietta', 'Shuffle Along' (conducted by composer Eubie Blake), 'Blackbirds of 1928' and 'The Band Wagon'. Featured performers include Doretta Morrow, Felix Knight, Edward Roecker, Louise Woods, Laurence Watson, Thelma Carpenter, Cab Calloway, George Britton, Edith Adams and Harold Lang.

The EPs (which were also issued simultaneously across 8 10" LPs featuring two shows on each record) are now highly rare and sought after by collectors. Most of the tracks have never been released on CD making Stage Door's reissue of these historic anthology recordings a welcome addition to any cast album aficionados collection. 

The CD release is complemented by a comprehensive sleeve note by Broadway historian George Dansker, including a complete sessionography of recording dates.

Each volume in the series is limited to 500 units only.
