While stumbling around in the tape vault a couple of years ago we came across this little gem, the original 1966 demo for Cy Coleman‘s “He’s Stuck in the Chimney Again”.
The music is by Coleman (who was riding high at the time with Peggy Lee’s #1 pop hit “Big Spender”, a song from the Broadway production of his hit musical, Sweet Charity) and the lyrics are by Floyd Huddleston. Coleman and Huddleston had enjoyed some chart success with “Sweet Talk” recorded by Damita Jo for Mercury Records the year before. The vocal is sung by Huddleston’s wife Nancy Adams, who is also the lovely voice behind Maid Marian from Disney’s 1973 film Robin Hood.
Please enjoy this superb version by the Jon Rauhouse Orchestra feat. Rachel Flotard of Visqueen!
Happy Holidays everyone!
