"Carousel" Signed Soundtrack Shirley Jones Gordon MacRae Barbara Ruick Richard Rodgers Oscar Hammerstein Autograph
The soundtrack album "Carousel" signed on the front cover by Shirley Jones, Gordon MacRae, Barbara Ruick, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein. All signed in blue ballpoint or biro pen. This is the original 1956 release on Capitol Records. The signatures were obtained by Cicely Steinberg, who grew up on Broadway from the early 1950's onward. She would frequent the nearby Colony Records store on Broadway, still there in business, and get records there. The owner would let her take records from the recycle bin, which were to be shipped back to the manufacturers, in exchange for some of the autographs she'd obtain on her ventures. She would roam the Broadway theater district and the nearby hotels, collecting the signatures of whatever stars she would manage to cross paths with. The album is in overall very good shape for it's age, some seam splitting on the top. The vinyl is a bit dirty but very minimum scratching. The original paper inner sleeve is included.
