NOËL COWARD SINGS SAIL AWAY is a significant release in tribute to the master songwriter/performer. The CD contains historically important (and hugely entertaining) recordings that have never before been heard. The major portion of the disc comprises Noël Coward singing his score for Sail Away, including many songs cut prior to the Broadway opening. In addition are extremely rare recordings Coward made in 1944 in Calcutta, India! The CD also includes excerpts from the demo of the unproduced show Later Than Spring, which was later adapted into Sail Away.

Part of Harbinger’s essential Songwriters Showcase Series, NOËL COWARD SINGS SAIL AWAY was unveiled in London at a special ceremony at the Drury Lane Theatre with the Queen Mother as the hostess.

Other entries in the Harbinger Songwriters Series include Strouse and Adams’ All American Backers Audition, Hugh Martin: Hidden Treasures, and Richard Rodgers: Command Performance.
