MU­SI­CAL MEM­O­RIES

Evergreen - - Spring 2016 - PUCKLECHURCH, GLOUCES­TER­SHIRE.

MADAM: A lit­tle while ago I was think­ing of some very old mu­si­cals and pre­vi­ously I’d been given a tablet by my fam­ily. Man­ag­ing to Google I was de­lighted to find that a DVD was avail­able of Chu Chin Chow, which I saw on stage. I put it on my Christ­mas list, but was dis­ap­pointed to dis­cover that the DVD was from Amer­ica and not com­pat­i­ble with our ma­chines. How­ever, it got me think­ing about all the very old mu­si­cals I’d seen in­clud­ing the film ver­sions of Rose Marie and The Danc­ing Years. There are, of course, many more later, won­der­ful films. It oc­curred to me that it would be in­ter­est­ing to hear from other read­ers of their mem­o­ries of old mu­si­cals. Also, would it be worth your while pro­duc­ing a Yes­ter­day’s Mu­sic CD of th­ese won­der­ful old melodies, be­fore they are for­got­ten?

I’m still read­ing your ex­cel­lent mag­a­zine af­ter many years and it is still just as in­ter­est­ing. — FREDA M. BROWN, * Many favourite melodies from th­ese mag­i­cal mu­si­cals are al­ready fea­tured on our Songs from the Shows CDs. ( A com­plete list is avail­able from our Edi­to­rial Of­fice by send­ing a SAE.) — Ed.
