Masterworks Broadway springs forward with the release of three unexpected album from the vault previously unavailable on CD–Marriage Type Love by Shirley Jones & Jack Cassidy (April 15), Androcles and the Lion (May 13), Ed Ames: Opening Night/More I Cannot Wish You (June 17).
In 1959, the release of Shirley Jones and Jack Cassidy’s new album, Marriage Type Love was announced with great fanfare. The cover was prepared and all of the audio was recorded and mixed. Yet, for reasons that still remain unclear, the album was never released and the master tapes have resided in the vaults ever since. Now, after more than fifty years, fans can hear the third collaboration between “the very much married-and-in-love” Shirley Jones and Jack Cassidy for the first time. Marriage Type Love features Marty Gold and His Orchestra backing up the singing couple with jazzy, brassy arrangements of a collection of songs that form what might be called a concept album built around the themes of love and marriage. Marriage Type Love will be released exclusively for purchase via MasterworksBroadway.com on April 15 in a limited quantity of Manufacture-On-Demand CDs as well as digital download. The CD will be available through Arkiv Music on May 13, plus downloads through digital service providers the same day.

The legendary Broadway producer George Abbott once said that Ed Ames’s voice was one of the finest he had heard on the legitimate stage. After success as a member of The Ames Brothers–the multi-platinum vocal quartet and popular TV fixture­–Ames turned his attention to acting and a solo vocal career. His acting career took off as he landed roles in the Broadway production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, the off-Broadway production of The Fantasticks and the role of “Mingo” in the TV series Daniel Boone. Opening Night, a collection of songs from Broadway musicals recorded in 1964 was his first solo recording and includes “Try to Remember” from The Fantasticks, his first charted single. Several years later, he followed up with the album More I Cannot Wish You, another collection of Broadway favorites that includes “The Impossible Dream” from Man of La Mancha and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” from The Sound of Music. Opening Night / More I Cannot Wish You, available together for one price, will be released exclusively for purchase via MasterworksBroadway.com on June 17 in a limited quantity of Manufacture-On-Demand CDs as well as digital download. The CD will be available through Arkiv Music on July 14, plus downloads through digital service providers the same day.
