TER’s recording of ‘Salad Days’ features the original cast and their Musical Director, Neil Rhoden of the 1976 West End production. This is the only stereo recording of ‘Salad Days’.

Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds ‘Salad Days’, chronicles the youthful adventures of a couple fresh from university, who find themselves put in charge of looking after a battered old piano by a London tramp. The piano, they name Minnie, has a life of it’s own, enchanting all who hear it into dancing, an effect that both enlivens and brings trouble for our joyful protagonists.

The celebratory nature of the musical, an old style song and dance extravaganza, led to it becoming, on it’s initial appearance in 1954, for 6 years, the longest running musical in the West End, only topped by the success of ‘Oliver’ in the late 1960’s. It remains a much loved gem of the music theatre aficionado, an exquisite document of a time gone by and a celebration of those ‘Salad Days’ we all enjoy.
