THE DISC & RECORDINGS:
This is Decca's second "Cast Album" based on
a Garland film. Most of the arrangements are markedly
those that appear in the film, although "Could You Use
Me?" is almost identical. Judy's version of "But Not For
Me" is a little more "up tempo", probably to appeal to the
audiences of the day who were more interested in music with
a more "swing" or "band" style.

Garland - The Beginning".
Judy's songs are included in the 1994 MCA (Decca) CD boxed
set "Judy Garland
- The Complete Decca Masters (plus)."
