For some reason they decided to change the artwork to what you see above. Personally I prefer this original artwork.

From the RHINO HANDMADE web site:

Rhino and Turner Classic Movies Music are pleased to present two soundtracks featuring Judy Garland that have been unavailable for far too long. The recordings on this Summer Stock/In The Good Old Summertime original motion picture soundtrack double feature release cover the last two of the twenty-eight features and five short subjects in which Garland appeared during her 15-year tenure with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

In The Good Old Summertime is a musical version of M-G-M's 1940 classic The Shop Around The Corner. Originally designed for June Allyson and Frank Sinatra, the story of two clerks in a turn-of-the-century music store was recast with Judy and Van Johnson in the roles (silent comedian Buster Keaton can also be glimpsed in a supporting part). The movie was released in 1949 and was both a critical and box office success. Along with six Garland performances, this CD includes selections by The King's Men barbershop quartet, a pair of violinist Marcia Van Dyke's numbers, and the sole surviving recording of In The Good Old Summertime's original, but unused, finale.

Beset by health problems and an ill-fated stint in Annie Get Your Gun, Judy began work in late 1949 on what would become her final Metro musical, Summer Stock. Paired with dancing great Gene Kelly, Garland plays a New England farmer who lets a troupe of performers use her barn and winds up falling in love with their director (Kelly). At Judy's request, musical supervisor Saul Chaplin acquired the standard "Get Happy" for the film, and it became one of Garland's greatest triumphs. Released in 1950, the film was even more popular than In The Good Old Summertime; nevertheless, Judy was released from her M-G-M contract weeks later. Along with all the songs from the film itself, this collection includes never-before-heard dance music and underscoring, and the outtake "Fall In Love" sung by Gloria De Haven and Phil Silvers.

This Turner Classic Movies Music edition of Summer Stock/In The Good Old Summertime original motion picture soundtrack double feature has been meticulously crafted to restore and expand the original 1949 and 1950 MGM albums with previously unavailable tracks. This disc marks the first release of every number in its entirety, as well as surviving background scoring, from Judy Garland's final, triumphant Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer achievements. All of the recordings included in this package --except two -- are in the original mono. This reissue also features liner notes from John Fricke, who co produced and co wrote the 1997 Emmy Award-winning A&E Biography Judy: Beyond The Rainbow.
