Digitally remastered edition. Stage Door Records are pleased to announce the release of Songs from Kermit Goell's Pocahontas - The West End Musical. This release continues Stage Door's commitment to preserve 'lost' British theatre scores of the past 50 years and coincides with the 400th anniversary of Pocahontas' death. The album presents the first opportunity to hear selections from Pocahontas following the recent discovery of reel-to-reel tapes featuring recordings of the score. The tapes, which were presumed lost, had not been played in over 50 years. Pocahontas opened at London's Lyric Theatre on November 14th 1963 - the musical featured music, book and lyrics by Kermit Goell and starred Tony nominated Broadway actress Anita Gillette in the title role alongside Terence Cooper playing both roles of John Smith and John Rolfe. The London Cast Album of Pocahontas was scheduled to be recorded and released by Decca, however the recording sessions were subsequently cancelled following the show's swift closure and the work became a forgotten memory in a long list of lost West End musicals, the score presumed unrecorded. However, in 2016 Kermit Goell's son Jonathan, located several reel -to-reel tapes of demonstration recordings from Pocahontas in his father's archive. The demos were recorded at two sessions in 1962 and feature selections from Goell's Pocahontas score performed by a company of Broadway singers under the musical direction of Jay Blackton. Now, over 50 years since Kermit Goell's Pocahontas was last heard, Stage Door are pleased to present an opportunity to revisit selections from the score on the album Songs From Kermit Goell's Pocahontas - The West End Musical and offer listeners the chance to discover a musical, presumed lost. Alongside the digitally remastered demonstration recordings, the album features a selection of piano instrumentals from Goell's score. As a special bonus, the CD concludes with an audio interview with Anita Gillette, the star of Pocahontas. Gillette's in depth interview, recorded in 2016 especially for this album, features the Tony nominated Broadway performer reflecting on her memories of the production, her one and only West End musical appearance.
