ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

The Pirate was the second Judy Garland soundtrack to be released by M-G-M Records and one of the most popular. Whenever M-G-M Records would prerelease their soundtrack albums, The Pirate was always a part of the line up.

Shopping Bag The "complete" soundtrack did not appear until the late 1980's when Sony Special Products included The Pirate as a part of their CD series of MGM Musicals soundtracks recorded directly from the film's soundtracks. Although it's not a complete soundtrack, they did include an abridged version of Judy's "Voodoo" outtake.

It wouldn't be until 2003 that the complete (well, almost complete - sans a few alternate takes that were included in the laser disc "Judy Garland The Golden Years At MGM"), The Pirate soundtrack would finally be released on CD by Rhino Handmade. With some of the tracks remastered to stereo!

Rhino previously released the remastered and restored outtake versions of "Mack The Black", "Voodoo" and "Love Of My Life" on their 1996 two disc compilation "Judy Garland Collector's Gems from the MGM Films". "Be A Clown" appeared on several compilation albums, and the stereo version of the final version of "Mack The Black" had it's debut on "Judy Garland In Hollywood: Her Greatest Movie Hits".
