#TBT: Broadway Magic on Vinyl
Not even a month ago, I was talking about getting rid of them - trying to purge/downsize, etc. Then what did my best friend do? He bought me a turntable for Christmas. I love it. It makes me feel very nostalgic. The very first record I played on it is the subject of today's blog.
Broadway Magic. Put out by the then-King of Broadway Cast Recordings, Columbia Records, these were a 60-song greatest hits collection from some of the greatest musicals of all time (along with a few flop gems), sung by legends of the Broadway stage. Each album has a theme: The Best of the Great Broadway Musicals, The Great Performers, The Showstoppers, Super Hits, Great Performances and All Time Favorites. And the back of each sleeve has terrific liner notes, too! Columbia put out a second Broadway Magic compilation series, by the decade - 50s, 60s, 70s.
And you know I'm going to get a current show on vinyl sooner or later...
