Longtime readers of this blog may remember I made favorable mention of this budget CD in May 2012. Like many of the cheap CDs emanating from Europe, this 1985 release credited to the Hollywood Studio Orchestra contains no information about the who, where and when of the recording.
But surprisingly, unlike many of its ilk, Broadway Memories is a pretty decent listen thanks to some good big band and orchestral arrangements.
Many of the songs are of course linked to stage productions, while others, such as Misty, seem to have no connection at all to the theater. As far as I know pianist Erroll Garner's 1954 composition has no Broadway link. The song, made popular by Johnny Mathis's 1959 recording, did play a prominent role in a couple of movies (eg., Play Misty for Me), but that was much later.
In any case Misty is included on Broadway Memories.
As mentioned in the earlier post probably the best chance at getting a copy of Broadway Memories is checking the bins at your area thrift stores.
Here's Erroll Garner's original 1954 recording of Misty.
