Mad Dogs and Englishmen [Avid Easy]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
"Mad Dogs and Englishmen" is one of the most intriguing phrases ever cooked up by that inestimable wit, Noel Coward (1899-1973). Small wonder that numerous Coward compilations use it as a title, including this double-disc 44-track anthology of '40s and '50s material released by Avid in 2007.

Coward is also backed by Carroll Gibbons & His Orchestra, pianist Robb Stewart, the Drury Lane and Cambridge Theatre Orchestras, Norman Hackforth & the Café de Paris Orchestra, and Wally Stott & His Orchestra with Hackforth at the piano. This collection will neatly complement Coward's earlier HMV studio recordings and his posthumously released radio broadcast transcriptions.
