  1. It's an excellent CD. I suspect I am not the only one here who attended the concert at which it was recorded. Richard Kaufman's daughter Whitney sang a couple of the songs (the one from Wild Is the Wind, for example) and Tiomkin's widow Olivia was in the audience not far from where I was sitting. The other vocalist Andy Playfoot can often be seen with the Maida Vale Singers accompanying the John Wilson Orchestra - here he is opening the singing in There Is Nothin' Like A Dame from South Pacific: I remember also spotting the American conductor Andrew Litton in th
  2. Probably NSFW but a very funny take on this from Andrew Lawrence.

Hopefully a future expansion will allow listeners to compare the original film and rerecorded album versions.
