Footloose Original Broadway Cast Recording

Ghostlight Records has released an updated and re-mastered version of the Original Broadway Cast Recording of Footloose the Musical.

The original 1998 release of FOOTLOOSE's cast album has been out-of-print since Q Records (the original label) shut down in 2003. Ghostlight Records has now stepped in to make the recording available once again, now with some dynamic revisions to its Grammy, Oscar and Tony-nominated Top 40 score.

The re-release features new album artwork by acclaimed Broadway graphic artist Frank "Fraver" Verlizzo (which will soon be available for licensed productions), plus a brand-new track - "Still Rockin'" - a song cut from the show in its pre-Broadway run and since re-instated to the score available for theatrical licensing. On the album "Still Rockin'" was recorded by original Broadway cast member, Hunter Foster.

Stage Door Canteen: Broadway Responds To World War II



Familiar with Irving Berlin’s “The Kick in The Pants?” “Ve Don’t Like It”? Can you sing Rodgers & Hart’s “How To Win Friends and Influence People”? How about Cole Porter’s “Farming?”
What those titles have in common – along with far more familiar songs like “The Saga of Jenny,” “Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin’,” “God Bless America,” and “Some Other Time” – is the time they were written and the circumstances of that time.
The songs were all from the period of World War II and all come from the pens of Broadway writers. A new CD as just been released by DRG records titled "Stage Door Canteen" which includes a cross-section of material from those war years – and it is chock-a-block full of delights.
