MASTERWORKS BROADWAY CELEBRATES THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CLASSIC BROADWAY MUSICAL GODSPELL
NEWLY REMASTERED 2-CD SET OF THE ORIGINAL CAST RECORDING PLUS ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK
AVAILABLE SEPTEMBER 6
First ever Broadway revival begins performances in October
MASTERWORKS BROADWAY proudly announces the release of Godspell – The 40th Anniversary Celebration, a two-disc set that will be available physically and digitally on September 6, 2011. The newly remastered collection includes both the original off-Broadway cast recording from 1971 and the motion picture soundtrack from 1973. Featuring new liner notes by composer Stephen Schwartz, Godspell – The 40th Anniversary Celebration comes out in advance of the first ever Broadway revival, which begins performances at New York City’s Circle in the Square Theatre in October.
The score by Stephen Schwartz, the Grammy® and Academy Award®-winning composer of Wicked and Pippin, includes the hit “Day By Day,” which reached #13 on the Billboard Pop Singles chart in the summer of 1972. “The popularity of the record helped make the show a bigger hit,” recalls Schwartz in his liner notes, “and at one point there were ten companies playing simultaneously around the United States, plus other productions in London, Paris, Australia, South Africa, Germany, etc…Today it is hard to believe that forty years have gone by since the original production.” New Godspell interview and performance videos featuring Stephen Schwartz will be available for viewing exclusively on MasterworksBroadway.com.
The 2-disc set also includes the soundtrack from the 1973 movie, which was filmed and set in New York City, and memorably featured the musical number “All For the Best” performed on the top of the as-yet-to-be-completed World Trade Center. Godspell introduced a young Victor Garber (Sweeney Todd on Broadway and four-time Emmy® nominee for TV’s Alias) as Jesus and features the joyous song “Beautiful City” which was newly written for the film.
Although this immensely successful musical based on the Gospel of St. Matthew now needs little introduction, when Godspell was first produced in 1971, it broke new ground in its treatment of the historical Jesus. It relates the last days of Jesus using dramatized versions of several parables, but quickly becomes something more – a religious experience and a joyous celebration of the family of man.
Godspell opened at the Cherry Lane Theatre on May 17, 1971 and then moved to the larger Promenade Theater in August 1971, where it became one of the longest-running off-Broadway musicals of all time. Godspell moved to Broadway in June 1976 and was Tony®-nominated for its score before ending its run in September 1977, with a combined total of more than 2,600 performances. This beloved musical has become a staple of the theatrical repertoire in schools, churches, and community and professional theatres across the globe and is one of the most licensed titles annually.

THIS TIME – a music documentary
Starring: The Sweet Inspirations
(The legendary back-up singers for Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick and the unforgettable voices behind Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man”.)
Watch the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/thistimemovie
From Elvis’ iconic back-up divas to a homeless club hit wonder, a crooning rock hopeful and an inventive producer-impresario… THIS TIME follows the painstaking efforts to turn up the volume on the careers of both musical legends and inspired has-beens as they navigate the treacherous stages and recording studios of a music industry far removed from the overnight sensations of “American Idol” and “The X-Factor”. An unflinching and entertaining portrait of faith, talent and gut-wrenching determination wrapped in a soaring soundtrack, THIS TIME comes from Grammy Nominated director Victor Mignatti.
The musicians on the flip side of this business are recording artists The Sweet Inspirations (best known as back-up singers for Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick), New York cabaret sensation Bobby Belfry, soul diva Pat Hodges (Hodges, James & Smith) and composer-producer Peitor Angell. The film also features original Sweet Inspiration and gospel star Cissy Houston.
Jonquil to play first US shows in NYC and at SXSW
The Oxford, UK four-piece’s One Hundred Suns EP now available
on limited-edition turquoise marble vinyl via Dovecote Records
“Jonquil’s self-proclaimed “Paul Simon’s take on The Smiths” tag nails them well, however the six-piece also encompasses a level of intricacy not unlike a more subtle Dirty Projectors without the R’n’B. Emerging initially as the more folky end of Oxford’s burgeoning math rock scene that brought us Foals and Youthmovies, Jonquil have constantly evolved and morphed into a very accomplished and mature band with a now newly focused, fresh output of work.” — Dan Monsell // Rockfeedback // 2010
The Oxford Englishmen of Jonquil will embark on their first US tour in support of the recently released One Hundred Suns EP on Dovecote Records. The tour includes shows in New York at The Knitting Factory (3/13) and a sold out show at Mercury Lounge (3/14) with Bombay Bicycle Club and numerous performances at Austin, Texas’ SXSW Music Festival. One Hundred Suns is now available on limited-edition turquoise marble vinyl. Embed the One Hundred Suns streaming player on your site and purchase the vinyl HERE.
Jonquil continues to woo the hearts of America, making fans out of everyone who hears their music. Most recently Nylon Magazine said “Fighting Smiles” and “It Never Rains” [are] where the group’s faint, retro-tinged sound really shines” and American Songwriter boasted “…if you like the beach party vibe, stick with Jonquil.” Back home, NME featured the Blessing Force collective, a group of musicians (of which Jonquil and Foals are proud members) aimed at taking the Oxford scene by storm.
3/13 @ Knitting Factory – Brooklyn, NY * w/ Bombay Bicycle Club
3/14 @ Mercury Lounge – New York, NY * w/ Bombay Bicycle Club [SOLD OUT]
3/15 @ SXSW – Next Stage @ Convention Center – Austin, TX [4pm]
3/15 @ SXSW – 7digital Showcase @ British Music Embassy [10pm]
3/17 @ SXSW – Dovecote Records Party @ Emo’s Annex [12:15pm]

3/18 @ SXSW – PRS / BMA Brunch @ BME [1pm]
3/19 @ SXSW – Official Showcase @ Emo’s Jr. 11pm]
Jonquil are Hugo Manuel, Sam Hudson Scott and Robin McDiarmid, three men in their early twenties living in Oxford, England. The band rehearse and record at home in their new east Oxford studio, having recently relocated from the House of Supreme Mathematics that they shared with Foals during the writing of Total Life Forever and Jonquil’s own One Hundred Suns. All tracks continue to be produced by Manuel who also records solo under the name Chad Valley.
FORTHCOMING VIDEO GAME SOUNDTRACK ON WATERTOWER MUSIC & TEENAGE RIOT RECORDS FEATURES SONGS CHOSEN BY EXECUTIVE PRODUCER JFK OF MSTRKRFT/DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979
Burbank, CA (February 10, 2011) – WaterTower Music and Teenage Riot Records are excited to announce the upcoming album Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors. Set for release this spring, this all-new collection of music is executive produced by JFK (of the innovative DJ/production duo MSTRKRFT and Death From Above 1979) and is made up of songs inspired by the iconic warriors from the acclaimed fighting game Mortal Kombat. JFK has hand selected songs by some of electronic music’s most resonant names, and the resulting compilation plays as a cohesive album that adds an engaging element to the latest edition of the iconic video game.
Last month, the first track, “Mileena’s Theme” by noted DJ and Producer Tokimonsta, was released to high-praise. Acknowledging feverish demand from fans, two more songs from the forthcoming album have been released: “Helado (Sub-Zero’s Theme)” by celebrated producer Harvard Bass and “Liu Kang’s Theme” by Italian DJ and producer Congorock. All three tracks are now available for download on iTunes and Amazon and the full album will be available on April 5th.
The album has been inspired by the latest game in the Mortal Kombat franchise, which will be in stores April 19 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The newest chapter in the legendary videogame series marks a triumphant return to the mature presentation and a reinvention of its classic 2D fighting mechanic. Mortal Kombat will introduce a number of new game-play features including tag team, a deeper story mode and nostalgic online and offline arcade battles. Players will be able to choose from an extensive lineup of the game’s iconic warriors and challenge their friends in traditional 1 vs. 1 matches as well as several new game modes.
