Also contained are "first" versions of songs like "Come Rain or Come Shine" and "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered". They ran fast out of the pop music gate the "source" got lost.
Just as interesting, we get great tunes from great flops: "Anyone Can Whistle" done by Lee Remick, is a Sondheim title tune so cool it carried on after the show stalled at nine performances!
Brilliant booklet to detail how the tunes landed in front of the footlights.
Could have lived without Joel Gray's "Give My Regards To Broadway", but...
