Kritzerland is proud to present the next release in our ongoing series of Ben Bagley reissues:
RODGERS AND HART REVISITED VOLUME III
Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Lorenz Hart
This is the third volume of Rodgers and Hart we’ve released and it’s another complete delight, with a great cast including Nancy Andrews, Blossom Dearie, Johnny Desmond, Estelle Parsons, Anthony Perkins, Lynn Redgrave, and Arthur Siegel. The musical arrangements and musical direction are by long-time Bagley regular, Dennis Deal. There are, as always, lots of great Rodgers and Hart rarities, a treasure trove of great tunes with great lyrics. That is the joy of these albums, not hearing the tried and true, but hearing the neglected and unknown. Because Bagley did not add any extra songs for his original CD release, we’ve added an almost thirty-minute interview with composer Richard Rodgers (talking with Tony Thomas) – Rodgers is very candid, and also plays the piano several times. It’s an illuminating interview with one of the all-time greats of the musical theater and it fills out the running time to almost seventy-nine minutes.
As always, we’ve really spruced up the sound, and we of course give you the great Harvey Schmidt artwork.
RODGERS AND HART REVISITED VOLUME III is limited to 500 copies only and priced at $19.98, plus shipping. This is a PRE-ORDER – CDs will ship by the first week of July, but never fear, we’ve actually been averaging three to five weeks early in terms of shipping ahead of the official ship date.
Also note that your PayPal receipt is the only receipt you get – we don’t send out confirmations beyond that.
