For the first time ever, fans of Dudley Moore will have a chance to hear the entire concert from the Dudley Moore Trio's renowned May 2nd, 1978 appearance in Sydney Town Hall, Australia. Recorded live, the concert was broadcast at the time and later excerpted by Cube Records to create the LP Dudley Down Under. Due to LP space constraints in 1978, only nine of the 22 musical numbers appeared on the original recording.
Now, the digitally remastered 2CD set features every piece in the concert, many selections with trio members Peter Morgan, bass and Chris Karan, drums, and including Dudley's solo musical parodies as well. Some of the highlights are the trio's performances of such standards as "Love Walked In," "Georgia on My Mind," and "Autumn in New York," and Dudley's hits including "Song for Suzy," "Strictly for the Birds," and "Cornfield" from Bedazzled, along with Dudley's parodies of Schubert and Beethoven, and a version of "Goodbyee" like it has never been heard-since the live performance in 1978.
