DisinHAIRited



Almost inevitably, the huge success of Hair on Broadway meant there would be another cast album that would include some of the songs which had been left out of the original album, all the more reason since they were more pop tunes than theatrical arias, and therefore easier to play on the airwaves. DisinHAIRited was such a recording. It provided a better picture of the score created by James Rado, Gerome Ragni and Galt MacDermot, as performed by the original cast, and was a deft complement to the first album. Recorded a year and a half after the show opened on Broadway, it also featured some new tribal members, including Sakinah, Robin McNamara and George Tipton, who had joined the cast in the intervening months. First LP Release: December 17, 1969

This is one of those albums that's always at thrift stores for a buck or two. Sometimes you'll see it priced $10 or more under the delusion that 'it's a rare psych record'. It's about as rare as 'Whipped Cream and Other Delights' and about as psych as Hootie and the Blow Fish.

Galt also tried to cash in on Hair with this record, Hair Pieces:
