Great Sepia 3CD set of Lionel Bart material...
on 27 November 2012
I am a big fan of Sepia and have bought many of their CDs over the years. If anyone can do it then Sepia can appears to be their motto. I had never expected anyone to issue a 3CD set of Lionel Bart material and to be honest people seem to only ever mention Oliver! if you mention his name and yet there was much more to the man as this lovely set now shows. The CDs are CD1 Songs from the Shows; Lock up your Daughters; Oliver! & Fings with a studio cast led album. CD2 Popular Songs with songs from the likes of Sid James; Marion Ryan (Paul & Barry's mother); Adam Faith and many more. CD3 is Demos and Rarities providing recordings for Blitz!; Quasimodo; Golda and Gulliver's Travels. Good liner notes and sound remastering and even with some allowance for the rarity and sound quality on some CD 3 tracks this set deserves 5 stars for taking the time and effort to put out such a wide ranging selection of Lionel Bart material.
