JAY Records presents the US domestic release of Marc Blitzstein's THE CRADLE WILL ROCK. Starring John Houseman and the inimitable Patti LuPone this complete digital stereo recording of Blitzstein's brilliant, satirical work will reinstate the score to the modern public. Set in the fictitious 'Steeltown USA', amid labour struggles of the time, the show set itself up for a confrontation with the American administration during the Communist 'witch-hunt'. Included as a bonus CD for a limited period is an introduction by John Houseman which describes the happenings of the time; a fascinating addition to this release which makes it all the more collectable.
