Favoriting Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from March 12, 2021 Favoriting

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Favoriting

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).

Macskák / Katze (Privat Aufnahme - 1985)
In 1985, near the end of the cold war, the casts of the Viennese and Hungarian translations of CATS met at the train stop Nickelsdorf - Hegyeshalom and sang various songs together simultaneously. This privately reissued remembrance is best at the beginning, with the two casts shouting at each other in English, things like "I love Andrew Lloyd Webber!"

I will admit I have no idea what it could have meant in 1970...but then, I've never seen Salvation
