The Ian Rae Collection - The Later Years
Having been asked to write a number of Christmas Carols for use at the St Andrews School annual Carol Service I soon had enough to produce an album. "Sing Everyone Sing"
Since I spend much of my time playing jazz it is only right that I include some jazz, including "The Pliable, Reliable Freedom Pass"
March 2012 saw my grandson, Dylan's first birthday and to celebrate the occasion these two baby songs were written
In 2012 in collaberation with Chris Chambers "Olympus The Musical" was produced and staged at the Ahcroft Theatre, Fairfield Halls in Croydon and at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall to coincide with the arrival of the Olympic Flame. Although an unknown musical - based on an unknown story it made a profit and was watched by 4000
Following the success of Olympus I wrote, with the help of Gee Rook, the follow up "I Hate Musicals" which was staged successfully in Nov/Dec 2000 - and it made a profit!
Finally, just a few demo versions of songs from "The Big Deal" co-written with Steve Humfress. This show, all about a computer salesman in the 1990s who sells his soul to the devil, has not yet been staged
