First time on CD! 1960 Television Cast recording of Gilbert & Sullivan classic featuring Groucho Marx!
Description: In 1960, TV's "Bell Telephone Hour" televised perhaps the most remarkable Gilbert & Sullivan operetta imaginable. In addition to stars like Robert Rounseville (Nanki-Poo), Babara Meister (Yum-Yum), Stanley Holloway (Pooh-Bah), Helen Traubel (Katisha) and Dennis King (The Mikado), the legendary Groucho Marx performed the role of Ko Ko! Over the years, the original cast LP has been one of the most sought-after vinyl albums by both G&S fans and Groucho's devotees. This cast album has never appeared on CD, and has been unavailable in any form for many years.
