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.
