Judy Room Spotlight on A Star is Born Section

A Star Is Born


ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

Here is the very rare 1954 78rpm boxed set of the soundtrack. What is especially interesting is how the "Born In A Trunk" sequence is split over 3 sides and "Someone At Last" is split over two sides. Notice how the songs look as though they're not in the proper order. This is because the sides are set up to be stacked on a "stackable" record player, one on top of the other, then after the first 5 sides have played the whole stack is flipped over to continue playing the remaining sides.

This special 78rpm set actually has metal hinges binding the cover to the rest of the box.
