This was the only official release of any of
Judy's recordings from her short-lived TV series of 1963/64.
Released in both mono and simulated stereo (hence the two catalog numbers above, the record was quite popular with Judy's fans,
and an abridged version was released by Capitol in 1980 #M-12034).
In the years since, recordings from Judy's series would show
up on various "bootleg"
albums and CDs, including some produced by Judy's ex-husband Sid Luft. Most of
these recordings were of poor quality or highly altered electronically. The series
recordings wouldn't get an "official" release by Capitol until 1989 when a few
tracks showed up on the "Judy Garland Live!" CD. The best CD compilation of songs
from Judy's series is "The Show That Got Away" released

and played for American Servicemen by DJ's on the Armed Forces
Radio & Television Services network.
