Vocal & Backing Tracks to 18 Songs from the Broadway Musical

When The Music Man opened on Broadway in 1957, it became an instant hit and won five Tony Awards, including best actor in a musical, best featured actress in a musical, best featured actor in a musical and best musical

Based on a story by Willson and Franklin Lacey, the entire show - book, music, and lyrics was created by Meredith Willson

The plot concerns con man Harold Hill, who poses as a boys' band organizer and leader

He proceeds to sell band instruments and uniforms to the naive folk of a small Iowa town, and promises to train the members of the new band

The town's librarian and piano teacher Marian sees through him and knows he has no plans but to skip town with the money

But when Harold helps her younger brother overcome his lisp and social awkwardness, Marian begins to fall in love ...

THIS 2-CD ALBUM FEATURES 18 SONGS FROM THE BROADWAY MUSICAL

The Vocal & Backing tracks are recorded in the original show key and show tempo and are of particular value to those of you preparing to stage the musical or preparing to audition

Each of the songs appears on the album twice

Once with Backing Tracks & Guide Vocals

And once with Backing Tracks only

This enables the performer to learn a song by singing along with the vocals and music and then practise their technique accompanied only by the Backing Track

NB - Two songs from this show - "Sincere" and "It's You" are performed a capella - the Guide vocals are available on this album, but not the Accompaniment tracks
