Book, Music and Lyrics by
Sandy Wilson

from the novel by
Ronald Firbank

Valmouth is the extraordinary and highly original musical from one of Britains great composers for the Musical Stage. This recording joins that ranks of other Wilson's classics such as THE BOYFRIEND (CDJAY 1289) and DIVORCE ME, DARLING! (CDJAY 1273). The great Bertice Reading reprised the role of Mrs.Yajnavalkaya in this Chichester Festival production, one, which was written for her by Sandy for the original London production. The Chichester Festival production featured an all star cast which included Fenella Fielding, Robet Helpmann, Doris Hare, Mark Wynter and Judy Campbell, who introduced the song "A Nightingale Sang In Barkerly Square" (not from the production) to the world, during the war.

Valmouth is a musical before it's time because it confronts such subjects as Inter-racial marriages, sexual pleasures, prostitution, religion, woman's lib, toy boys, gayness, magic, the British class system and innocence.

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London in 1982, this first USA release on JAY Records has been digitally remastered by producer John Yap.
