Company is a 1970 musical comedy with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by George Furth. The original production was nominated for a record-setting fourteen Tony Awards and won six. Originally titled Threes, its plot revolves around Robert a single man unable to commit fully to a steady relationship, let alone marriage, the five married couples who are his best friends, and his three girlfriends. Unlike most book musicals, which follow a clearly delineated plot, Company is a concept. While a proposed series of original cast recording sessions for documentary filmmaker D. Pennebaker Don't Look Back never materialized, Original Cast Album: Company survives as the first and only entry, and it was fortuitous that its subject was the 1970 musical Company. Groundbreaking in its use of a series of vignettes rather than a conventional plot, it was also one of the earliest major works for composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim, the most important figure in musical theater over the last quarter-century. Company is, to say the least, an unusual show. What is it, really Certainly a brilliant musical, by Stephen Sondheim. Company B is the debut album by girl-group trio Company B. Released in 1987 on Atlantic Records, the album generated several dance club hits. Group members at the time of the recording consisted of Lori L. Ledesma, Lezlee Livrano and Susan Johnson, and all tracks were written and produced by Miami-based musician Ish Angel Ledesma. Comprising eight Hi-NRG and Latin freestyle tracks, the album spawned four U. Hot Dance Club Play hits, including the single Fascinated, which hit number one. This quality is exemplified in Original Cast Album: Company, which Greene cites as a masterpiece, calling it a stripped-down homily to the act of people acting the contradictory power of people playing themselves for his exacting nonfiction camera is the de facto subject of all of Pennebakers films. Pennebaker captures Sondheims eccentric perfectionism with a lovingly amused gaze, offering a rare glimpse of the notoriously private musical theater legend. Broadway nerds worship Sondheim as much as documentary heads revered Pennebaker.

Stephen Sondheim's musical Company opened on Broadway in the Spring of 1970, and tradition dictates that the cast recording is done on the first Sunday after opening night. Pennebaker, the now-legendary documentarian, filmed the production of the original cast recording, the back and forth between Sondheim and the performers, and the dynamic of trying to record live performance.

Recorded the day after the very first Company gig at the Purcell Room on May 9th. 1976.
And to think that people tend to associate 1976 with The Sex Pistols at the ICA!!
Something far more DIY and subversive was going on at that exact time. New Hormones eat yr heart out! This was the real independent deal.
