Alemite CD-2 ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This odd compilation, apparently from the mid-1960's, was "custom pressed for Alemite CD-2 by
M-G-M Records". "Alemite" was a "concentrated motor oil detergent". It was common at the time for companies to have LP's made by record labels to help promote their product. This one was probably given out as a "gift with purchase". The label on the record does not note that it's any special promotion, being the same as all M-G-M Records releases of that time, like this 1964 MGM compilation. .

The one Garland track is the M-G-M Records version of her 1940 recording of "Singin' In The Rain" from Little Nellie Kelly, even though the cover photo is a rather stern looking Judy in The Harvey Girls. The rest of the tracks are much more contemporary for the time period. Obviously the company wanted the still marketable Garland name to help sell their product.
