ORIGINAL DEMO RECORDINGS OF
'HALF A SIXPENCE'
TO DEBUT ON CD
Stage Door Records are pleased to announce the previously unreleased studio demo
recordings of David Heneker’s musical ‘Half A Sixpence’ will be released on
the 29th September 2017.
'Half A Sixpence' is considered one of the most iconic and enduring British
musicals of the 20th Century. The musical adaptation of H.G. Wells' novel 'Kipps'
featured music and lyrics by David Heneker with book by Beverley Cross and
opened at London's Cambridge Theatre in March 1963 starring Tommy Steele as
Arthur Kipps. On March 13th 1962 (exactly one year before the show opened in the
West End) the studio demo recordings for 'Kipps' (the then working title for the
show) were recorded at London's Olympic Studios.
Performers featured on the demo recordings include Tommy Steele, Rita Williams,
Roy Sone (Tommy Steele's understudy in the Original London production), Joanna
Rigby and writers David Heneker and Beverley Cross. Backed by the Kenny Powell
Trio, the studio demos effectively capture the magic of David Heneker's classic
score and feature many of the stand out numbers from the musical including 'If
The Rain's Got To Fall', 'Money To Burn' and 'Half A Sixpence'. The recordings
also highlight several songs which would later be cut from the show and provide
a fascinating insight into the development of the musical.
Stewart Nicholls, Theatre Director and Archivist for the David Heneker Estate
"These rare demonstration recordings for "Half A Sixpence" were discovered in
perfect condition in the garage of Composer David Heneker's family house in
deepest Wales - and hadn't been played for 55 years! They were recorded in March
1962 (exactly a year to the date prior to the show opening in the West End) and
unveil the delicious charm of the original Heneker score as well as displaying
an unusual insight into the development of a 1960s British Musical. Hearing the
writers and the original star, Tommy Steele, work through the score at such an
early - yet polished - stage is as enlightening as it is charming".
The previously unreleased 'Half A Sixpence' Studio Demo Recordings have been
digitally remastered from the studio master tapes. All tracks make their debut

ANNIVERSARY of the Revolutionary
“BEETHOVEN ON SPEED” ALBUM FROM THE GREAT KAT!
Released on Sept. 18, 1990
Watch MTV Music Video of “BEETHOVEN MOSH” at
NEW YORK TIMES’ featured The Great Kat & “Beethoven On Speed”:
“Furiousness to a would-be world view”
“The wave of the future might well be heavy-metal Beethoven by way of Juilliard.
Ms. Kat's ‘Beethoven on Speed’ album elevates furiousness to a would-be world
view. It is built on speed-rock electric guitar solos (fast, virtuosic, nearly
everything articulated with frenzied right-hand strumming and manic left-hand
skittering up and down the fret board, the general esthetic being
more-notes-per-second equals better). To which she adds hoarse imprecations for
her ‘slaves’ to grovel before her and her overpowering genius.” – John Rockwell,
The New York Times
On Sept. 18, 1990, “BEETHOVEN ON SPEED” Album, produced by The Great Kat, Monte
Conner and Jon Mathias, was released on Roadrunner Records. History was made as
The Great Kat Shook Up SPEED METAL with Never Before Heard Mixture of authentic
Classical Music & Speed Metal Guitar! “Beethoven On Speed” is now available
worldwide from Warner Music on iTunes
itunes.apple.com, Amazon & more and is featured in “America’s Beethoven”
Exhibit at the “American Beethoven Society”.
