For the first time later this month, a few lucky people will get to hear what no one in America has -- a collection of lost Cole Porter songs.The one-night-only June 27 premiere of "The Ambassador Revue" at The Town Hall near Times Square will mark the first time the 1929 show has ever been staged outside Paris.Unearthing the 85-year-old show was labor of love for both Bloom and Giordano, who found the missing music in a Universal Music archive in Milan.Then the original orchestrations were discovered in Waring's archive at Penn State and music was also uncovered for two more songs and a tune that had no lyrics. It's actually not the first time that Bloom has discovered a lost Porter tune. While writing a book about songs for the movies, he was rummaging in the Paramount archives when he found a Porter song written for "The Battle of Paris".
