Product Description

Product Description

For the second release on our new label imprint AVID EASY we
have chosen to feature the "in performance" work from the 1950's of the
legendary old trouper Noel Coward.
Taken from both sides of the Atlantic our wonderfully re-mastered 2 x CD
set finds the "mad dog and Englishman" in a finely relaxed mood as he
effortlessly takes us through an enormous selection of mostly self composed
songs, showing just how prolific a writer and charismatic performer he
actually was!
Primary focus is on he US performances at the Wilbur Clark Desert Inn Las
Vegas in 1955 and in New York a year later in 1956.
The track listing speaks for itself and as a bonus to conclude CD2 we have
included Coward's final British performances taken from a scarce 10" LP.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MASTER CLASS 14 Aug 2007
By Barry McCanna TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Only three popular songwriters consistently both composed the song and wrote the lyrics. Two were Irving Berlin and Cole Porter, which puts Noel Coward in the most august company. But whereas Berlin and Porter were indifferent performers, Coward early on adopted a suave persona which was perfectly tailored to his material. In 1955 he wowed audiences at the Desert Inn, Las Vegas, and the following year it was the turn of New York to be taken by storm. These recordings have been repackaged in this 2-CD set, the first of which contains also a selection of 78 recordings, and a medley recorded in London in 1951. As if that were not enough, especially at this price, there's a 1952 track, and the second CD also contains nine recordings from 1954. Over 145 minutes of The Master performing his own work makes this an absolute bargain,.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humorous, Satirical.. and very British! 13 Jan 2011
By SeaWasp
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Frosted glass and chrome! Noel Coward never fails to put me into an art deco mood. Just listen to "Room With A View" and you'll see what I mean. This is a truly indispensable 2-cd set. I couldn't stop playing it for days. What a great deal for [...] . We get Mr Coward's 2 American lps (Noel Coward In Las Vegas & Noel Coward in New York), a selection of his British 78s including a few wartime tunes including the wonderful "Let's Not Be Beastly To The Germans".. a tune which always reminds me of a certain Fawlty Towers episode and a favorite of Winston Churchill (who apparently got the joke although many others were very put out by this song). We also get a 1951 performance from London's Cafe de Paris consisting of 2 medleys plus "There Are Bad Times Around The Corner" from 1952. There is also a rare 10" lp from 1954 consisting of 9 songs.

Noel Coward was having tax problems at home in the mid 50s so he accepted Wilbur Clarke's offer to play the Desert Inn in Las Vegas. This resulted in a magnificent live album. Noel was a big hit and even Frank Sinatra chartered a plane to fly in his celebrity pals from Hollywood to check out Mr Coward's show and Frankie loved it. You will too.. especially Noel's show-stopping, very naughty version of Cole Porter's "Let's Do It". Buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mad Mice and Englishmen will love this album! 7 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an absolute must for all Coward fans, containing all the best known and loved classics. My iPod was underused until I bought this, now it's on all the time! It's especially good if you're musical, also have the sheet music and are learning to play the tunes on the ukulele, as I am! The songs are a winner at the more discerning parties - who could fail to love 'Don't let's be Beastly to the Germans', and the eponymous 'Mad Dogs and Englishmen', sung as it should be by the master himself? Buy it now!

This albumis very slightly misleading as one of the discs is Noel Coward live at Las Vegas which I already have! not too bad because a good friend benefited from my original one! This is a must for coward fans

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Coward... 21 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
This vintage collection brought together for the Hallmark label has 65 minutes of Noel Coward performing many of his most well known compositions. The sound quality is very clear throughout and the original sources sound to have been restored and show little sign of their age. The medleys are probably the most effective bringing together the essence of Noel Coward and the era during which they were most popular.
