LP0170. TEXAS LI’L DARLIN, Original 1949 Broadway Cast, w.Will Irwin Cond.Kenny Delmar, Danny Scholl, Mary Hatcher, Fredd Wayne, Loring Smith. (10" LP) 10" early black with gold print label Decca DL 5188. [Exceptional pristine copy for this early LP vintage!]
“TEXAS LI'L DARLIN', appeared on Broadway on November 25, 1949, for a moderately successful run of 293 performances and concerns a blowhard politician played by Kenny Delmar, which gives Mercer the opportunity to set a comically boastful lyric to Robert Emmett Dolan's OKLAHOMA!-like music on the title song and to offer a sarcastic tribute to the joys of ‘Politics’."
