From singing to the postman when she was less than two years old to her annual sell-out tours in the 2000s, Barbara Dickson has been captivating her fans for the best part of sixty years. In her autobiography she describes the joys of growing up in Fife in the fifties, of moving to Edinburgh at seventeen to find her place in the world and the struggles of trying to make a living on the Scottish folk scene.
Despite becoming Scotland's bestselling solo artist in the seventies and eighties and having huge hits such as 'I Know Him So Well' and 'Caravan Song', Barbara was not content to have just a successful singing career. She turned to another: acting. A regular on prime-time television, Barbara also took to musicals, making Blood Brothers and Spend, Spend, Spend her own. Her time onstage earned her many acting accolades but her pursuit of perfection lead to complete exhaustion from which she fought hard to recover.
Barbara's is a warm, fascinating story that encompasses the best of British music, stage and television and above all tells the story of an ordinary woman with an extraordinary voice.
This work, a companion to Broadway Sheet Music: A Comprehensive Listing of Published Music from Broadway and Other Stage Shows, 1918 through 1993 (1996, $75), provides information about sheet music published over the 75-year period from June 1, 1843, to May 31, 1918--the early days of modern American theatre. It covers all sheet music published from all Broadway productions--plus music from local shows, minstrel shows, night club acts, vaudeville acts, touring companies, and shows on the road that never made it to Broadway. Also included are all the major musicals from Chicago, which rivaled Broadway in original productions during that period. Each piece of sheet music has been assigned a number by the author, and the following information is given: production title (as listed on sheet music cover), year the production officially opened or tour began, name of the theatre (applicable only to New York productions), number of performances (applicable only to New York productions), performers, song titles, composer and lyricist, original publisher of each song, and cover description. Also included are comments from the author.
