Catalogue No.: SEPIA 1159

Release Date: 9 November 2010

Although better known as the daughter of Broadway legend Richard Rodgers, Mary Rodgers is an accomplished composer in her own right. Here we present the CD debut of the underrated Original London Cast album of her most enduring work, ONCE UPON A MATTRESS. Although it failed to emulate the success of the Broadway version, the London cast contained many distinguished names, including Max Wall and Thelma Ruby, as well as American comedienne Jane Connell, who went on to star as Agnes Gooch in MAME. 

Alongside MATTRESS whose tracks are presented in show order for the first time we are proud to release the concept album ALI BABA AND THE 40 THIEVES 40. Narrated and sung by Bing Crosby and with lyrics by Sammy Cahn, this rich score acknowledges Rodgers's lifelong accomplishment as a writer for children. Together, these tracks serve as a reminder of the composer's unique talents as she approaches her eightieth birthday in January 2011.
