ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

M-G-M Records re-released their soundtracks in these special "two-fer" sets in 1973. This set is devoted to The Pirate along with the Esther Williams/Howard Keel musical Pagan Love Song (1950), and the Debbie Reynolds/Jane Powell musical Hit The Deck (1955). Quite the variety of music and quite enjoyable too.

Note: The song "House Of The Singing Bamboo" featured here from Pagan Love Song was originally recorded by Judy Garland & Ray Bolger, with a different set of lyrics, for The Harvey Girls (1946) as "Hayride" but was cut from the film. "Hayride" first appeared on "Cut! Outtakes From Hollywood Musicals" and later the Rhino Records CD of the complete soundtrack.

Hit The Deck was released on CD, complete and in stereo, in 2000 by Rhino Records. All previous releases of this soundtrack had always been in mono format, even though the film was recorded and presented in stereo. The first real stereo soundtrack album released by M-G-M Records was Gigi in 1958.

The sides on these two records are set up to play in order of sides on a "stackable" record player. The records are stacked, then the first side of each record is played, then they're flipped over so the remaining two sides play.
