I was going through the CD collection and came across my ORIGINAL first edition of Chess the Musical.

I remember seeing this on stage in London when I was a brand new Ensign in 1987 with some of my friends from the Naval Academy, one of whom has sadly passed away. This was the first, and last musical I watched until I got married to a musical fiend. But that's another post.

This was a great musical, even though it was written by ABBA, and was certainly a Cold War timepiece.

I still love the music, here's one of my favorite songs. "Nobody's on Nobody's Side" by Elaine Page

DIG that 80's hair.
