An unusual and challenging musical in every respect, Merrily We Roll Along has the odd distinction of being a seldom performed show because of its difficulties in staging and yet having one of the finest and most interesting scores to come from the pen of Stephen Sondheim.

This JAY recording is the only complete recording, and because of the nature of the book, which tells the story backwards is finally made comprehensible to the listener with the inclusion of certain key scenes and dialogue. The extended scenes and song settings define the development of characters, relationships and musical motifs clearly as no other recordings do.

This original cast recording features stars such as MARIA FRIEDMAN (London’s LADY IN THE DARK, PASSION, SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE), EVAN PAPPAS (Broadway’s MY FAVOURITE YEAR), JACQUELINE DANKWORTH (London’s INTO THE WOODS, INVADE MY PRIVACY) and LOUISE GOLD (London’s ANYTHING GOES, NUNSENSE).

Recorded in Digital Dolby Surround Sound which of course is the perfect idiom for all the dramatic and extended scenes.
