Long Lost John Phillips Musical, Produced By Andy Warhol To Get CD Release

(Submitted News) This summer, Varese Sarabande releases the 4th installment in the Papa John Presents series: John Phillips "Andy Warhol Presents: Man On The Moon"

This collects never-before-released music written and performed by John Phillips from his long-lost musical Man On The Moon (a/k/a SPACE). This off- Broadway musical was produced for the stage by Andy Warhol, directed by Paul Morrissey (director of Warhol films like "Frankenstein") and features performances by members of Andy Warhol's Factory and Denny Doherty of The Mamas and The Papas.

This spaced-out musical comedy opened at the off- Broadway Little Theatre in 1975. The release includes the repertoire performed by John Phillips as well as cast recordings.

The release is an enhanced CD containing 34 previously unreleased original John Phillips songs performed by John and his Celestial Choir, featuring Genevieve Waite, Monique Van Vooren, and Denny Doherty.
Includes live recordings of the show made by Andy Warhol from the audience at the Little Theatre in 1975, and studio tracks from the 1974 Genevieve Waite cult classic album produced by Phillips, Romance Is On The Rise.

The CD also includes video footage of a previously unreleased 1974 rehearsal. An additional PDF document includes the original playbill, extra photos, reviews, press clippings, early scripts and song orchestrations.

You'll have the guess the release date as there was no mention in the announcement.
