ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

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. Although Judy's 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..
