Guys & Dolls - Original 1950 Broadway Cast / Where's Charley?

Album 2004 on Naxos Musicals label
Soundtrack (Score, Musical)

Original 78s from the collections of David Lennick and the Belfer Audio Laboratory and Archive, Syracuse University. Producers Note: By the time Guys and Dolls came to Broadway the long-playing record ('LP') had been established as the favoured format for Original Cast Albums, with the 45 RPM version running a distant second and 78s barely noticed. But they still existed, and so most Broadway shows continued to be issued at all 3 speeds through 1953. Luckily so, because many early microgrove recordings were uneven in quality, while the 78 RPM issue of Guys and Dolls, on a near mint Canadian pressing, proved to be the best sounding source for this transfer. Ray Bolger's songs from Where's Charley? were issued as a premium pressing on non-breakable 'Deccalite'. The remaining selections were issued as conventional 78s, but quiet vinyl pressings were often made exclusively for radio stations. The tracks of Dinah Shore, Johnny Mercer and Jo Stafford & Gordon MacRae were transferred from these 'disc jockey' issues, recently found in a private collection.
