Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol song folio

It only took 49 years but now, for the first time ever, a collection of the sheet music from Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol is available from Alfred Music Publishing.  It's a bound and illustrated folio containing all of the songs and lyrics from the special in their complete versions, including the deleted middle section of the singing waiters from “It’s Great to Be Back on Broadway”.  The edition includes a foreword by yours truly and was monitored and approved by the Styne estate. It’s a great compliment to last year’s DVD release and song release.  This a small press run so if you’ve been wanting to play and sing these tunes at home or include "Lord's Bright Blessing" as part of your Christmas caroling, don’t wait.  It’s available here now and in music stores, retailing for $14.99.  Amazon also has it here.

Finally. Jule Styne and Bob Merrill wrote this masterpiece shortly after writing an obscure Broadway show called Funny Girl with Barbra Streisand. Geeze, whatever happened to her?
