HALF A SIXPENCE - LONDON STUDIO CAST RECORDING (STAGE 9088)

Continuing Stage Door's series of London Studio Cast Album reissues from the SAGA Records back catalogue is the 'Half a Sixpence' 1967 London Studio Cast Recording.

'Half A Sixpence' is rightly considered one of the most iconic and enduring British musicals of the 20th Century. David Heneker's musical adaptation of H.G. Wells' novel 'Kipps' introduced the musical theatre standards 'Flash, Bang, Wallop!', 'If the Rain's Got to Fall' plus the show's title song.

Released to coincide with the musical's 1967 film adaptation, the SAGA Records 'Half a Sixpence' cast album is led by Colin Farrell as Arthur Kipps. Farrell played Buggins in the show's Original London Cast and on this recording gives a shining and charismatic performance as Kipps. The role of Ann is sung superbly by West End veteran Angela Richards while 'Doctor Who' mainstay Michael Wisher plays Chitterlow. The recording features expert musical direction by Ray Cook conducting the Westminster Sinfonia and Theatre Chorus.

The SAGA Records 'Half a Sixpence' album has the distinction of including numbers from the Original London, Broadway and Film versions of David Heneker's score. Highlights include 'The Party's on the House', 'I Don't Believe a Word of it', 'This is My World' and of course the showstopper 'Flash, Bang, Wallop!'.

Digitally remastered from the original studio master tapes, the 'Half a Sixpence' London Studio Cast Recording now makes its debut on CD. The CD issue is complemented with an in depth sleeve note by theatre director and David Heneker archivist Stewart Nicholls

The Half A Sixpence 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.
