Bringing together Matt Monro’s great “lost” Broadway album and 27 of the British singer’s biggest hits, the 2CD collection ‘Stranger In Paradise’ showcases the immense vocal talents of whom Frank Sinatra once noted – “His pitch was right on the nose; his word enunciations letter perfect; his understanding of a song thorough.”

Recently unearthed from the Capitol Records vaults, disc 1 captures Matt and an intimate grouping of musicians interpreting some of the great Broadway classics of the day, including ‘The Impossible Dream’, ‘Hello Dolly’ and of course, ‘Stranger In Paradise’. The search in the vault has also unearthed two previously undiscovered Matt tracks – Beautiful Beautiful World and What Makes It Happen which make their debut here.

Meanwhile disc 2 includes all the classics for which Matt’s been revered, both then and now, including ‘Born Free’, ‘From Russia With Love’, and ‘On Days Like These’
