Description

Harbinger’s Legendary Performers Series features these previously unreleased recordings by a true Broadway legend, Susan Johnson. During the 1950s and 1960s, Johnson was one of the leading lights on Broadway. She appeared on stage in such musicals as The Most Happy FellaBrigadoonOh, Captain!, Donnybrook! and Whoop-Up! Even her failures added to her luster. Although she was considered one of Broadway’s top belters she also had an uncanny way with soft ballads.

Fans have long regretted that Johnson never made a solo album of her own. Now, through recently discovered recordings of live concert performances, here is that album. Featuring excellent fidelity and a full orchestral accompaniment, the CD repertoire includes standards by Frank LoesserCole PorterIrving Berlin and Johnny Burke.
