Ridgeway's Late Joys (VAR81)

Ridgeway's Late Joys was a Music Hall revival which was chaired by Leonard Sachs at The Players' Theatre Club. Starting shortly before World War II, it rapidly became a success and this live recording captures the atmosphere very well. Also included on the CD are two studio recreations of Music Hall, chaired respectively by H Chance Newton and Charles Coborn.
