ABOUT 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 music.

From 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.
