SWEET CHARITY - LONDON STUDIO CAST RECORDING (STAGE 9085)

Continuing Stage Door's series of cast album reissues from the SAGA Records back catalogue is the 'Sweet Charity' 1967 London Studio Cast Recording

Released in December 1967 to coincide with the recently opened West End production, the SAGA Records 'Sweet Charity' cast recording stars popular West End actress Mary Preston as Charity Hope Valentine. Preston's many West End credits include taking over the role of Anita from Chita Rivera in the original London production of 'West Side Story' plus starring roles in 'Grab Me a Gondola', 'Lola Montez', 'Irma La Douce', 'Oh! What a Lovely War' and 'Irene'. In September 1968, Mary Preston took over the role of Helene from Paula Kelly in the 'Sweet Charity' London production. The SAGA studio cast is rounded out by West End performers June Hunt (Jan Hunt), Canna Kendall, Valentine Palmer, Craig Hunter, John Parker and David Wheldon-Williams with the Westminster Sinfonia and Theatre Chorus directed by Frank Raymond.

The SAGA Records 'Sweet Charity' has the distinction of being the only recorded version to feature an additional cut verse in Charity's song 'You Should See Yourself'. Also included on the CD release is an extended version of the 'Rich Man's Frug' which was recorded during the SAGA album sessions but unreleased on the original LP.

Digitally remastered from the original studio master tapes, the 'Sweet Charity' London Studio Cast Recording now makes its debut on CD
.

The Sweet Charity London Studio Cast Recording is licensed from the Saga tape collection at the British Library and is a limited edition release of 500 units only.
