A Star Is Born



ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

Originally released in 1958, this version was available in both monaural and "stereo" (electronically re-channeled for stereo). The stereo version shown below left states, on the label, that it's in "360 Sound" stereo.

The artwork for both the monaural and "stereo" versions remained the same, although the "star burst" would disappear as seen in the 1970's reissue shown below right. The blue border (shown on both versions below) first appeared on the 1960's re-issue.

This version remained in print until the late 1960s, when in 1970 the artwork was replaced by the "big fat close-up" version, and the mono edition was discontinued alltogether.

This "Judy on the stool" cover art would be briefly re-introduced in the late 1970's/early 1980's prior to the first CD release. The sound on all versions aside from the mono edition was the simulated stereo.
