The Bayview Records disc, which will be available beginning April 1, features songs from four "Broadway By the Year" concerts. Those concerts celebrated the musicals that opened on Broadway in 1925, 1939, 1940 and 1951. The songs on the new disc weren't included on the original releases of those shows because of space issues. They are now available on this 15 track recording.
Created, written and hosted by Scott Siegel, the four Town Hall concerts featured songs from such musicals as No, No Nanette; The Vagabond King; The King and I; A Tree Grows in Brooklyn; DuBarry Was a Lady; Too Many Girls; Yokel Boy; Louisiana Purchase; Swinging the Dream; Two for the Show; Big Boy; and Charlot's Revue of 1926. Performers heard on the new recording include Stephanie J. Block, Justin Bohon, Walker Jones, John Dossett, Rob Evan, Alison Fraser, Chip Zien, Rebecca Eichenberger, Darius DeHaas, Rob Gallagher, Marie Danvers and Annie Golden.
