Post King Richard
I just found out about a failed ALW musical called "King Richard", and that some melodies from the show were re-used with new lyrics for JCS. Can anyone tell me more about this musical?

I believe the emphasis was changed to Richard's minstrel, Blondel, which Tim Rice wrote a musical about. I don't remember the name of the composer. I think it's very fun, reminiscent og Joseph, but with less accessible tunes.

I've heard one or two tunes from Blondel and rather liked them...especially Nikki Renee Daniels singing "Running Back For More."

It was indeed originally conceived as a project with Rice and Lloyd Webber, but nothing came of it. Rice ended up working on it with composer Stephen Oliver.

I think this was written for 'Blondel'. David Essex had a huge hit with this in 1989.
