ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Vibrant and entertaining show tunes is what listeners will hear on "The Spirit of River City”. This album contains a bustle of energy with versatility to cover a range of music. Take a step back to barber shop style of vocal prowess on the track “The Clip-Clop Life.” Humorous and amusing lyrics highlight the comical song “The Only Time To Act Is Now.” A charming and delightful holiday ballad “Where Is The Christmas” also graces this collection of brilliant tunes. Clever arrangements and solid performances give this album an enjoyable musical experience. This is a wonderful album to hear especially if you like energetic show tunes with memorable originality.

--Radio Indy

This CD features the original cast, recorded live in its world-premiere run in August 2008 at the Stephen Sondheim Performing Arts Center, Fairfield, Iowa. Energetically and engagingly performed, it captures the goodwill and verve of this charming musical. Independently produced, the CD is available domestically from Dress Circle in London, or online at http://cdbaby.com. You can also watch two numbers (“Sears, Dear Sears” and “Thanks Be to Music”) on YouTube.

Request for download version
I would like to have this recording, as it is an update of Banjo Boy, but would much prefer to receive it via download. I hope there are plans for releasing it in digitalized format.
