Atmospheric original cast recoridng,

This review is from: The Biograph Girl (Audio CD)
For musical fans, here's the original West End cast recording of the short-lived musical that was a sort of British answer to the better-known and much-revived but not longer-running "Mack And Mabel", also charting the rise and fall of the Silent Movies, although its leading figures are D W Griffith, May Pickford and Lillian Gish. It's a terrific recording, capturing the fine singing, punchy vocal arrangements and atmospheric orchestration with a raunchy small band dominated by a suitably honky-tonky keyboard. Some excellent songs it would be good to hear more often.
