A Chorus Line

This is the original Cast Recording from "The New York Shakespeare Festival Production" from 1975...It gives no other information of where it was performed and no dates other than 1975....Its another case of you would have to see the show to fully appreciate this L/P.....I have not seen either the show or the Film which I do believe has been made....There are two "Hit" songs from this show..."One" and "What I Did For Love" !
L/P's like this could have done with someone to invent a stylus that would have been able to read the "Video" signals as well as the audio ones !!...but there again it would mean an whole new invention the L/P would have been made to take Video as well as sound in its grooves !!! well as a whole new set of players to play them !!!!..ect ect ect !!!
