Jonathan Tunick created the orchestrations for the stage production, but we have been told that the orchestrations heard on this recording were not by him.
We have no recording date for this album, but it seems to have been at least several weeks after the opening as replacements are heard in a few of the non-principal roles.
Although not included in the album's song list, 'Women Simple" is heard on the recording, on the same track with "A More Than Ordinary Glorious Vocabulary." It is first sung by Lee Cass as a solo, then he sings it in counterpoint with the end of "A More Than Ordinary Glorious Vocabulary," sung by Mimi Randolph.
Similarly, "Day Dreams" is on the recording although it is not included in the album's song list. It is, however, mentioned in the plot synopsis on the inside of the album's foldout jacket. The song occurs is on the same track with "I Found Him." Again, it is first heard by itself, sung by the chorus, then in counterpoint with "I Found Him," sung by Christina Gillespie.
We have included both songs in our track list for the recording.
"What Can It Be?" and "I Found Him" are reprised by the entire company in the finale.
