ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

Another in the late 70's "Silver Screen Soundtracks Series" which were the British counterparts to the 1974 M-G-M Records "Those Glorious MGM Musicals" series. Most of the M-G-M Records soundtracks were released in England under this series with vastly different graphics, as you can see here. These were all done in the gate-fold style, opening up to reveal liner notes and two photos from each film.

Another difference is that while the American editions were in mono, these were in "simulated stereo" which in those days meant that basically the bass was high on one channel, and the treble was high on the other, creating a pseudo stereo effect. Some echo and reverb was added too, to round out the levels. Sometimes it sounded good, sometimes it didn't.

This particular edition is a good example of M-G-M Record's ownership of the 20th Century-Fox soundtrack to Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953). Fox did not have their own soundtrack division, so M-G-M Records stepped up and released the soundtrack. It appears on many of the "two-fer" and other series with a variety of M-G-M Soundtracks throughout the 1950's, 60's, and 70's. The only other known instance of the Blondes soundtrack being paired with Clouds is the 1955 two-fer.
