The most fun, wonderful CD I've bought since I can't remember when. A perfect collection of unknown (to me), rare and wonderful Coward songs hilariously performed. One Fly. I do not like Ann Hampton Callaway.
3 The Wife Of An Acrobat.
Ben Bagley (October 18, 1933 – March 21, 1998) was an American musical producer and record producer. Born in Burlington, Vermont, Bagley moved to New York during the early 1950s, and in 1955, at age 22, he produced his first hit, Shoestring Revue, starring (among others) Beatrice Arthur and Chita Rivera (and, later, Jane Connell), and with songs by Charles Strouse, Lee Adams, June Carroll, and Sheldon Harnick.
Item Number JRM04875-UV. TITLE Ben Bagley's: Noel Coward Revisited. Condition Used - Good. This item is sold "as-is" and is non-returnable. For details see disclaimer description below.
Ben Bagley's Noel Coward Revisited (Painted Smiles 1355) includes, as might be expected, an array of Cow ard songs that do not turn up in other collections. This simply means that other col lections are overlooking some gems. As a result, Mr. Walters and Miss Cohen do not stand out as singularly as they do in the BrechtWeill songs al though Mr. Watters produces the most completely realized performance in the album on Lonely House from Street Scene.
