In the 1970's, the Loughborough Endowed Schools Theatre Workshop comprised teachers from the Loughborough High School, Grammar School and Fairfield School who, in earlier years, had performed "Oh, what a lovely war!", "Sweeney Todd" and "Forty Years On".

The idea of producing "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat", a particularly adventurous choice, was that of Chris Penter, and he had little difficulty in arousing enthusiasm from colleagues for such an exuberant show.

The original production, to full houses in the Hodson Hall, Loughborough, took place in May 1977, but such was the local enthusiastic response, that when the Lions Club of Loughborough proposed repeat performances for charity, the revival in October 1977. at the Charnwood Theatre, Loughborough, was also completely sold-out.

The Lions Club was able to donate 1,000 [nb at 1977-value!] from the production to a children's home at Woodhouse Eaves.

Encouraged by excellent press reaction, we decided to issue a vinyl recording, recorded live during the revived production, as a memento of what was described as 'an exciting, full-voiced performance'.

Here, I've converted the original master recording from reel-to-reel tape to .mp3 files, and then 'cleaned up' the tracks - thanks to 21st Century technology available nowadays, free, to everyone!
