Trivia & History

The only members of the Broadway cast heard who we are certain are on this recording are Ethel Merman, Ray Middleton, John Garth III, Leon Bibb and Clyde Turner.'

'"Who Do You Love, I Hope?" was sung on Broadway by Kenny Bowers and Betty Ann Nyman. The song is performed on this recording by Robert Lenn and Kathleen Carnes.

Although the booklet with the 2000 CD issue on Broadway Decca lists Broadway cast members Merman, Middleton, William O'Neal and Marty May as singing "There's No Business Like Show Business," that is clearly not correct. Several solo voices are heard and a large chorus, but it does not sound like any of those people is among them. The original issue on Decca 78s in 1946 listed the performers of the song as being the "Annie Get Your Gun Chorus and Orchestra," but it is not certain that it is the show chorus or if it might be a Decca studio chorus.


The first official release to put the songs in show order was the Decca Broadway release in 2000.


The bonus tracks added to the 2000 CD release come from the 1973 studio cast recording.
