Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from December 4, 2020 Options

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Options

Musical theater from off the beaten path. Obscure and unusual show tunes from within the canon and without, flops, failures, and the newest works from up-and-coming artists—plus tried-and-true hits. Also, occasional appearances from songs that are not show tunes (but only if they go really well with show tunes).

Autoharp Alert!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I love how, in every picture I've ever seen of someone with an autoharp, they look like they're cuddling with it. I know that's how you hold it but they always look so into it
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Webhamster Henry:

The Golden Screw: "The show’s cast album was recorded by ATCO and was the first rock theatrical recording of its kind."

Hi, Jazzers!

You know I have 10 autoharps, right? www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hey doctorjazz :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Bronwyn Bishop:

10 autoharps!!! I wish I had just one autoharp. Or half an autoharp
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Webhamster Henry:

They do make little 5 chord ones.

Do you know the "I'm Gay" song from "Brain Candy"? www.youtube.com...

Hello! I really like the cover of Ben Bagley's Frank Loesser Revisited (having missed the song)

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Webhamster Henry:

@diciassette Check out ALL the Ben Bagley LP covers - they all look like that!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:11pm diciassette:

I have one (C. Porter Revisited) and I was beginning to suspect that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

On this album cover Lionel Bart is credited as the writer of the "Music and Songwords." Songwords!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:17pm doctorjazz:

Boss of the Bus is great! We need more information!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I think that's the first track where I haven't been able to find any details about the recording whatsoever (I found the song on YouTube). Here is info about the show, which has been done at regional theatres in England but never in London: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Webhamster Henry:

I like the arrangements of Best Foot Forward .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I heard that and thought the music was really complex and interesting, especially for a musical about maps
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Webhamster Henry:

There was a version of Happy End that ran at Yale Rep in 1974-75: yalerep.org...
Marianne Faithful's version is nice to hear.
