Original Broadway Cast (1963)
"That's Your Funeral" had been dropped on the pre-Broadway tour and the LP was recorded by RCA on August 19, 1962, five months prior to the opening of the show. When the show opened on Broadway this song had been reinstated.
The original numbers assigned to this show were LOC (M)/LSO (S)-1075 but were changed when the double cover packaging was decided upon.
Michael Goodman is heard as The Artful Dodger on this recording, which was recorded during the pre-Broadway tryout. By the time the production reached Broadway, a replacement Artful Dodger from the London production, Davy Jones, was playing the role. Also during the tryout (well after the recording was made), Frederic Warriner was replaced as Mr. Sowerberry by Barry Humphries.
