As promised, anyone who'd like to PRE preorder Illya Darling - here it is.  The official announcement will be next Monday, which is when it will go live on the site.  I suspect this will move pretty fast.  You know the routine - 19.98 plus 3.75 shipping (or 6.50 overseas) payable via paypal.com directly to kritzerland at adelphia dot net. 

HELLO, ILLYA!

Kritzerland is proud to present the first ever CD release of the Original Cast Recording of Illya Darling, with a score by Manos Hadjidakis and Joe Darion.

Illya Darling opened on Broadway at the Mark Hellinger Theater on April 11, 1967.  It was based on the wildly popular Greek film Never On Sunday, which made an International star of Melina Mercouri.  The film was written and directed by American Jules Dassin, who also played the male lead.  Illya Darling would have many of the same players, including Miss Mercouri, writer/director Dassin, the film’s costume designer, Theoni V. Aldredge, and film cast members Titos Vandis and Despo.  The film’s composer, the Oscar-winning Manos Hadjidakis (Oscar for Best Song – Never On Sunday), would write the score, with lyrics by Man Of La Mancha’s Joe Darion. 

The show had a difficult birth during its out-of-town tryouts, and it opened on Broadway to tepid reviews – but those tepid reviews also were love letters to Miss Mercouri.  The show received six Tony nominations, winning none.  Because of Miss Mercouri’s reviews and star power, the show ran almost a year, and then toured with Cyd Charisse.  The original cast album was issued by United Artists, who had funded the show in full.   That LP put the songs in a completely different order than they were in the show. 

For this first-ever CD release, we have put the songs back in show order and have given the proper titles to any that were renamed for the LP.  In going through the session tapes, we made the incredible discovery that two songs were recorded but not used on the LP – the show’s opening number “Po, Po, Po” and a number called “Birthday Song.”  Both songs were transferred and mixed from the four-track session tapes and put where they belong in the show’s song order.  Hearing the show with those two numbers and everything in show order is something of a revelation. 

The colorful cast includes an incandescent Melina Mercouri, Orson Bean, Titos Vandis, Nikos Kourkoulos, Rudy Bond, Hal Linden, and Joe E. Marks.  The CD has been mastered from the original album master tapes (and for the two added songs, from the original four-track session tapes). 

The CD is a Limited Edition of 1000 copies only. 

The price is $19.98 plus shipping.

CDs will ship the second week of May – however, as those who’ve ordered directly from Kritzerland know, preorders placed directly through Kritzerland usually ship one to three weeks ahead of the street date.

DR JRAND

Posed this question yesterday

And on 60 Minutes, there was an "inspiring" story about a schizophrenic musician who spends a lot of time in a concert hall in Washington DC (I think) and his struggle with his mental illness.  OH AND GUESS WHAT?  Paramount is releasing a movie about HIS LIFE starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey, Jr.....  And they wonder why we have lost respect for television "journalism." How can 60 Minutes let itself be used as a shill for Paramount

Simple answer: Paramount owns CBS as Universal owns NBC and Disney owns ABC and 20th Century-Fox owns Fox

TOD

New Yorkers would know the answer to this

In the late 70's and somewhere into the 80's there was a cable channel that should a program on Friday night (late) and young men and women would sit around naked and people would call the show and speak to them. I think you had to pay for that privilege. I think the hostess was a big busted blond lady who the show was name after.

It was fascinating to watch as in Montreal we didn't have any programs like that

I made it through a whole week of work (well part time days, I only stayed until 2:30) so Saturday we  (drum roll please) took down the Christmas tree.

Yes - the tree has been up all this time - we decided to keep itup until I was better and now I am better!

I have been eating three meals a day - albeit toddler sized portions - but I have not used the cans for 4 days now!!

Good morning, all! I've been up and about since 6:30. This morning I've got about 2 hours of work before I step out to see my barber and pay a visit to Jo Loesser about THE MOST HAPPY FELLA. After lunch with her, I'm back here to continue Mr Raines' concert work.

I just ordered ILYA DARLING, so I'm happy as a clam this morning.

TOD:
   Robin Byrd; I stopped watching her show because it got to the point where it was nothing but reruns. Nothing worse than stale porn, and I'm not talking 2 or 3 reruns I'm talking 20 to 30.
   There used to be this peculiar "New York" show with a drag queen host that was often informative and always funny in the late 1980s; can't recall the name but I was sorry to see it vanish.

Taking down the tree took all day Saturday - by time we were done (around 6 PM) I was exhausted and went to sleep for several hours

Sunday we went to church and then to the Vixter's basketball game - her team made the playoffs -  but they lost yesterday so the season is now over.
