Every summer, the day after Labor Day, the town of Ocean Grove, as we have known it all summer long,  suddenly disappears, and another version takes its place. It’s magic like the story of Brigadoon.

Here are Shirley Jones  and Jack Cassidy with  “The Heather on the Hill.”   –Paul Goldfinger, Editor  @Blogfinger

Robert Morse (1959) in Take Me Along

 

By  Carl Swenson of Ocean Grove.  (Carl was a Broadway performer a few years ago.)

 

Paul, you just had to post a Robert Morse clip!   So I hunted down my early recording from one of my favorite B’way shows of all time, Take Me Along. A Jackie Gleason vehicle  based on Ah, Wilderness, an O’Neill comedy of all things.

I know you like B’way stuff. Since it’s O’Neill, alcohol figures in the plot of course, lol. Wonderful show with great music by Robert Merrill if you don’t know it. Great cast too! Walter Pidgeon, Eileen Herlie and Una Merkle!

Here’s Morse, playing a 16 year old at age 28 from the cast recording in 1959!   The song is called “Nine O’Clock.”

Every year, the day after Labor Day, it feels like we are getting our town back.  It’s almost like magic, because it is so less congested—many hundreds of cars and people simply vanish.  It reminds me of the show Brigadoon where a small town in Scotland vanishes and then reappears, albeit, every one hundred years.

Here is a song from that original Broadway cast with Shirley Jones and Jack Cassidy, selected by Eileen who loves Brigadoon.  “The Heather on the Hill.”

Of course, we have Rosa Rugosa on the dunes.
