Notes

The original cast recording by Oriole, London.
Sleeve Notes as follows:
"SALAD DAYS" was commissioned in February 1954, by Denis Carey, at the time Director of the Bristol Old Vic. Julian Slade was the resident composer there, and Dorothy Reynolds one of the leading actresses.
The show was written during March and April, and presented on May 1st, for three weeks, as part of the regular summer season. It was designed to suit the existing company of twelve actors, who even though accustomed to acting in plays, entered so happily into the spirit of musical comedy.
"Salad Days" was transferred in August 1954, to the Vauderville Theatre, London.
It is a summer story set in London during a heat-wave. Timothy and Jane, on leaving their University, are beset by their parents - that she should marry well, that he should choose a career, following in the footsteps of one of his influential uncles. The two meet in the park, and decide to simplify life by marrying each other and taking the first job that comes along. The job falls easily into their hands, for they meet a tramp, who offers them seven pounds a week to look after his old street piano for a period of one month. they discover that the piano has the power to make all who hear it dance. They take it over with enthusiasm, and very soon have the whole town ... from street urchins to policemen and Bishops ... dancing to its tune.
News of this irregular gaiety reaches the ears of the Minister of Pleasure and Pastime who, in his anxiety to restrict the high spirits of the nation, attempts to suppress the piano. Timothy and Jane succeed in hiding it from him, but find to their distress that it is really lost.
They are assisted in their search to find the piano by Timothy's Uncle zed, a zany scientist who conveniently owns a flying saucer. He arrives at the right moment to give them a lift, and they are able to spot the piano from the regions of the upper air. On descending to earth, they discover that it is the tramp who has been hiding the piano in order to protect it. The month of guardianship is over, and they hand the piano back to him, sad to part with it, but hopeful of a future as gay as the past.
