THE DISC & RECORDINGS:
This is an interesting compilation from M-G-M
Records that seems to try to appeal to all demographics: Fans
of musicals, country, film scores, jazz, and "modern" film
the MGM Album
Discography site: "The 24-Karat Gold series
was a short-lived series of double-LP issues, packaged with a
gold foil cover. The records used the same blue and gold label
as the main series at the time. From the photos inside the cover,
which seemed to be the same on all the albums, it appears that
MGM was contemplating several more volumes, including 24 Karat
Gold from the Underground, and 24 Karat Gold for Groovin', but
these apparently never materialized. (They did issue at least
one volume on Kama Sutra, 24 Karat Gold Hits from the Lovin'
Spoonful [Kama Sutra 750-2], with the same gold foil cover and
same pictures in the liner note area.) The series was originally
slated to be the SE-24000 series, but the catalog numbers were
shortened between the time the album masters were made and the
time the cover artwork was finished, as the original matrix numbers
are scratched out in the vinyl trailoff area."
This is the only edition to include any Judy Garland vocals.
