The second volume of PS Classics? acclaimed SONDHEIM SINGS series, like the first, consists of newly remastered demos from the Tony, Grammy, Oscar and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer-lyricist?s private collection. Volume II covers the years 1946 to 1960 and includes rare songs Sondheim wrote in college, for early unproduced musicals, and for the amusement of friends and colleagues in the 1950?s.

"Well, you'd never buy this for Stephen Songheim's singing voice! This probably should be the first volume of the series, since it has reviews of his earlier work, but the songs here are very obscure indeed. Almost all of them are student works, or works written for friends etc. They are really interesting to hear especially as a historical curiosity, (although I don't think I will be playing the CD again without skipping the cut "10 years old" which is basically just annoying).
I found that after a few hearings the cd really grows on you. It is not surprising however that these musicals in general were never produced, if these were the only performances heard by backers etc.
P.S. classics should consider having professional performing musicians perform the never before recorded songs to get a better idea of their merit."
