Post "Let's Work Together" and "Whole New Board Ga
Heyhey Chess kids :)

It's looking optimistic that I may indeed get to mount this show next year... nothing definite yet, but hopehopehopefully I'll have the chance!

Anyway, in my preparations, I'm trying to get a feel for the flow of the US version of the show, particularly the second act... I've managed to piece together a "complete" recording of all the songs that are in the Broadway version (by snagging the 'what a scene' bit out of merano, etc etc'), but "Let's Work Together" and "Whole New Board Game" have apparently never been recorded!

Can any of you point me to a place where one may procure one or both of these songs? It'd be greatly appreciated... note that I'm never ever one to ask for the dirty B-word here, but in the case of a song that has never been recorded, there may be no other option.

Thanks in advance!

I once had a bootl;eg audio of Harry Goz and Dennis Parlato singing "Lets Work Together".

I do hpowever have our Molokov and Walter doing the song on my dvd of the production when I played Florence.

I'm not sure what "Whole New Bopardgame" is. that line is used in the song 'Freddy Goes Metal" though.

A ha! That's what I get for using Wikipedia's list of musical numbers... I'm sure that's the song in question. I still don't have a copy of it, but it's nice to have the correct title!

EDIT: "Freddie Goes Metal" is tacked onto the end of "The Interview" on the Actor's Fund Concert, so that one's taken care of now :)

I don't want to put you to any trouble, but if you can find the time to send either one of these my way it'd be greatly appreciated. :) I'll sing at your wedding, or something!

if it helps- Let's Work Together is basically the same melody as One Night in Bangkok

Lyrics: Let's Work Together


MOLOKOV
Now you and I we've been around
We've seen them all come and go
We don't need to put each other down

WALTER
I don't think that I like what I hear
Too sincere
I don't want to know

MOLOKOV
Don't be to quick to condemn
And don't assume you're on top
WALTER
C'mon Ivan you can't win 'em all

MOLOKOV
And why not?
Or at least we can go for a draw

WALTER
Tell me more...

MOLOKOV
Only talking shop?
There comes a time when we should pool resources
Could be the answer to our nation's prayers
Let's work together for the only course is
To mix our laissez and our savoir faires
You know how much that helps the guys upstairs

WALTER
I hope you don't misunderstand
For I don't want to close doors
We're communicators after all

MOLOKOV
Well, we all have our own point of view
Maybe you
Ought to stick to yours

WALTER
I like to be my own man
But in the light of your words...

MOLOKOV
No...the light was in the envelope

WALTER
Very good!
But it's time to put rancour aside
Petty pride

MOLOKOV
Strictly for the birds!

WALTER
There comes a time when we should pool resources
Could be the answer to our nations' prayers
Let's work together for the only course is
To mix our laissez and our savoir faires
You know how much that helps the guys upstairs

BOTH
Let's work together and the world is safer
The Berlin Wall becomes a backyard fence
And our cooperation paves the way for
Our prime time leaders and the main events
Behind the scenes we show some common sense
A little mutual convenience

WALTER
Comrade!

MOLOKOV
Buddy!

BOTH
It's our best defense

Thanks for the effort! :) I actually have several copies of both of these songs now, plus I have the Broadway score, so I don't need 'em anymore.
