Scraps was a show base on Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Match Girl, written by Jeremy Paul, Leslie Stewart and Keith Strachan which was performed at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond upon Thames in Dec 1977. Following a TV production in 1986 the show became known as The Little Match Girl.
Recorded in 1975 in Keith's home in Hatfield Broad Oak and played on an old upright piano acquired from a pub.
Keith is singing most of the songs but is joined by Jeremy on Kitchen Rag and Amanda, Jeremy's then 12 year old daughter, on Mistletoe and Wine and Are You an Angel. The keys of the songs on the demo were to suit Keith's range but were changed for the show to accommodate female voices.
