Stage Door are pleased to present the debut CD release of the Destry Rides Again Studio Cast Recording.

Harold Rome's musical Destry Rides Again opened on Broadway at the Imperial Theatre on April 23 1959 and ran for a respectable 493 performances. Based on the classic 1939 Western film of the same name, Destry Rides Again was produced by David Merrick and starred Andy Griffith and Dolores Gray. The production earned 4 Tony Award nominations with Michael Kidd winning for "Best Choreography". 

One week after the Original Broadway Cast Album was recorded by Decca, a studio cast album of Harold Rome's score was recorded at RCA Victor's Studio A in New York City and subsequently issued on the RCA Camden imprint. Produced by Chick Crumpacker and conducted by Norman Leyden, the recording featured lead vocals by popular recording, radio and television personalities Louise O'Brien and Jack Haskell. With its imaginative arrangements and polished performances, the RCA Camden album presented another platform to showcase highlights from Harold Rome's immediate and memorable score.

Digitally remastered from stereo reel to reel tape, the Destry Rides Again studio cast album now makes its debut on CD. The album is complemented by a generous selection of bonus tracks spotlighting the many pop covers from Rome's score, including cuts by Lisa Kirk ('Ring on the Finger'), Sammy Davis, Jr. ('Fair Warning'), The Four Aces ('Anyone Would Love You'), Sylvia Syms ('I Say Hello'), Richard Hayes ('Ballad of the Gun') and more.

The CD booklet features extensive liner notes by Broadway historian and Harold Rome scholar George Dansker.

Destry Rides Again is a Limited Edition pressing of 500 units only.
