THE PAJAMA GAME was only the eighth to run for over 1,000 performances on Broadway and was revived by the New York City Center less than six months after this sensational run. A musical set in a garment factory, involving strife between union and management, this sounded unpromising to the unimaginative but went on to win Donaldson and Tony Awards as The Seasons Best Musical. Astonishingly, many of the production team were fresh young talents but this is reflected positively in the energy and fun of the show.

This first complete recording on double CD from JAY Records offers a unique listening opportunity for the collector and the casual listener alike.

Cast from strength, this studio cast recording sounds more like an Original Cast album than many such others. It is helped by the fact that Broadway Star Judy Kaye and others such as Avery Saltzman, Brooks Almy and David Green came to the recording fresh from their performances in the recent New York City Opera production of the masterwork. Broadway and TV star Ron Raines as well as Kim Criswell lend their talents to make this the most spectacular of musical recordings.

Hit songs abound in the score but a couple went to the very tops in the Hit Parade, HEY THERE! and HERNANDO’S HIDEAWAY. HEY THERE! HAS BEEN RECORDED BY EVERYONE FROM Frank Sinatra to Dorris Day. Dorris Day starred in the wonderful film version of the show.
