Trivia & History

The original LP issue placed "Charity's Theme" at the beginning of Side Two, but the 1999 CD issue moved it to reflect where it was performed in the show (at the beginning, right after the Overture). The 1999 CD issue also includes an extended version of "Rich Man's Frug," including more of the music heard in the show in that number.

Bonus tracks include a longer version of "I Love to Cry at Weddings" than was on the LP; several numbers performed by Cy Coleman (including the cut "You Wanna Bet," the music for which would be reused in the show's title song); and opening-night coverage that was heard on radio in New York.
