Description

This two-CD retrospective is a must-have for all lovers of musical theater! Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt first won fame as the creators of The Fantasticks—the longest-running musical in the history of the world, with more than 21,000 performances given in New York over a period of 58 years.

But the Jones & Schmidt musicals also include Broadway classics such as I Do! I Do!110 in the Shade and Celebration. Selections from these and 12 other shows are included in Harbinger’s deluxe set, which features many previously unreleased “demos” by the songwriters themselves.

Jones & Schmidt worked closely with Producer Bill Rudman for over two years to ensure that this album would best represent their legacy, and both composer and lyricist contributed liner notes for a 64-page color booklet that includes dozens of never-before-seen photos.
