Editorial Reviews

"The Buccaneer" was staged three times in London - it was first presented at the Watergate, a tiny theatre off the Strand in 1953 where it failed to attract an audience but when "The Boy Friend" became a hit, "The Buccaneer" was staged at the Lyric, Hammersmith in 1955 with six new numbers added. A young actor called Kenneth Williams ("Carry on..") was cast as the precocious Montgomery Winterton. Both production and Williams received praise and the show ran to full houses, then toured and finally transferred to the Apollo in the West End. The delightful cast recording makes its first appearance on CD here. For bonus tracks we have included selections from two other West End shows - the four songs which were recorded from the short-lived "Romance in Candlelight" starring Sally Ann Howes, Patricia Burke and Jacques Pils; and Patricia Burke's three major solos from "The Lisbon Story", a show that ran for over 500 performances in London during the war.

I purchased this as an album way way back in the mid 80's. The album was stolen along with a bunch of other things during a robbery and I was never able to replace it. Now nearly 20 years later I can enjoy it again - now on my iPod! I've really missed this score.

Since enjoying a production of The Boy Friend back in the 70's, Sandy Wilson is one of my favorite theater songwriters. The Buccaneer is a really fun score (Unromantic Us is a wonderful song!). Another obscure Wilson score I highly recommend is Valmouth (the original production with the great Cleo Laine).

It's really nice to have this score available in a digital format.

Here is a sweet score from the same Sandy Wilson who gave us "The Boy Friend" & I, for one, cherish it--but then I once fell in love listening to it. Without such memories, you may not be as beguiled as I am, but, if you liked that other work of his, I think you will find much here to enjoy, most especially, the ironically named love song, "Unromantic Us".
