Product Description

Product Description

Written by Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds in 1954 'Salad Days' an extremely well formed musical show with infectious songs that are easy to sing. Originally intended for a three week season at Bristol's Theatre Royal the show proved to be such a crowd pleaser that it transferred to London's Vaudeville Theatre where it ran for 2283 performances.

The show is built around the tale of a magic piano, one that can make people dance. Timothy and Jane, the young lovers, have just left university and are having to find their way in the world when a tramp offers them £7 a week to look after Minnie, his piano. The piano is lost and Timothy and Jane end up on a flying saucer searching for the piano, which is found in time for the tramp to reclaim it.

'Salad Days' place in musical history is assured, not only because of its long run. It has been revived regularly - four of which had London showings, and it was the first show seen by the young Cameron MacKintosh, sparking off his lifelong interest in the form.

Bonus tracks include material from 'The Duenna', another Julian Slade show, and his own recording of a medley from Salad Days. The 16-page CD booklet contains production shots and photos of some cast members.

5.0 out of 5 stars Salad Days ( Original London Cast ) 17 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
A very delightful reissue of this wonderful show, with an extra bonus of selections from The Duenna. I have bought Cds from this label Sepia before and am very impress with its quality and remastering, super sounds and great interesting pictures insert, all in all very good value for ones money for such a budget price, recommanded indeed.

I bought this CD for my parents who went to see the original play and had an old very scratched LP. The quality of the sound on this CD is fabulous. It is such a lovely fun musical.

3.0 out of 5 stars Revives pleasant memories 2 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
Good quality sound but dated performances as this is the original London Cast from the 50's. Some excellent songs and a light hearted enjoyable musical. Bought as a present for someone who loved the show when younger. I think you would need to have seen the show to enjoy the soundtrack
