Ambassador   (English RCA SER 5618)    Original London cast LP
LP0145. AMBASSADOR (Don Gohman), the 1971 adaptation of the novel THE AMBASSADORS by Henry James, Original 1971 London Cast, w.Howard Keel, Danielle Darrieux, Toni-Sue Burley, Margaret Courtenay, Blain Fairman, Neville Jason, Judith Paris, Isobel Stuart, David Wheldon-Williams, Nevil Whiting. Lyricist Hal Hackady, who had already written the tuneful but flawed MINNIE'S BOYS, had been working on this one with composer Don Gohman since 1960 or so; they did a decent job, but Lerner & Loewe it wasn't — and that's what was needed. (Gohman was one of the saddest cases of one-shot Broadway composers; he was despondent over the show's demise and, in 1974, committed suicide.) Unable to raise the money for a Broadway production, the producers took their show to London where it opened in October 1971.] English RCA Stereo SER 5618
