This is the U.K. EMI Records version of the M-G-M
Records' "All Star Salute" series Gershwin
edition (E/SE-4242). The only difference between this and the
American counterpart is teh MGM logo on the front, and the addition
of the word "mono" in
the top right corner. The tracks are the same.
Each LP in the series featured soundtrack and studio recordings
all written by the same songwriter or songwriting team. There
are six more LPs in this series, featuring the works of Jerome
Kern, Cole Porter, Sigmund Romberg, Lerner & Loewe,
Rodgers & Hart,
and Irving Berlin.
M-G-M Records recordings are featured on four in the series (see
below), oddly enough no track from The
Pirate made it into the Porter edition..
