"One of the British New Wave's most versatile directors, John Schlesinger came to New York in the late 1960s to make Midnight Cowboy, a picaresque story of friendship that captured a city in crisis and sparked a new era of Hollywood movies. Jon Voight delivers a career-making performance as Joe Buck, a wide-eyed hustler from Texas hoping to score big with wealthy city women; he finds a companion in Enrico "Ratso" Rizzo, an ailing swindler with a bum leg and a quixotic fantasy of escaping to Florida, played by Dustin Hoffman in a radical departure from his breakthrough in The Graduate. A critical and commercial success despite controversy over what the MPAA termed its 'homosexual frame of reference,' Midnight Cowboy became the first X-rated film to receive the best picture Oscar, and decades on, its influence still reverberates through cinema"--Container

Sandhog : a folk opera by Earl Robinson( Recording )

4 editions published between 1955 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Sandhog' is a musical adaptation of "St. Columba and the River" a story by Theodore Dreiser about the tunnel workers, known as "sandhogs," who built the first tunnel under the Hudson River. Featuring music by Earl Robinson and lyrics by Waldo Salt, the musical opened at New York's Phoenix Theatre in November 1954, running for just 48 performances. The cast included Jack Cassidy, Alice Ghostley, David Brooks and Betty Oakes. In 1956, Earl Robinson and Waldo Salt recorded an album of 'Sandhog' with Robinson singing the score accompanying himself on piano and Salt providing linking narration. The album was subsequently issued on the Vanguard label and has since become regarded as one of the most sought after and collectable musical theatre recordings. The original Vanguard LP sleeve note explains the premise of the recording and its presentation: "We planned to call this a "composer's run-through," but when the tapes were played back, the effect was so overpowering that this term was obviously inadequate. Since this is a recreation of 'Sandhog' for the phonograph, the full technical possibilities of recording were explored, and so where more than one signing voice is heard, the added voice is also Earl Robinson's. Altogether there are about four minutes of multiple recordings here." Earl Robinson and Waldo Salt's recording of 'Sandhog' now makes its debut on CD. As a special bonus, the CD also includes Selections from 'Sandhog' as performed by the original Off-Broadway cast members including Jack Cassidy and Alice Ghostley. The album concludes with a selection of bonus tracks featuring recordings of the show's main theme 'Katie-O' / 'Johnny-O' as covered by Edmund Hockridge, Felicia Sanders and Vince Martin
