Trivia & History

We list "If You Don't Mind My Saying So" even though it is not listed on any of the issues we have found of this recording, but it is on the recording, and so we list it. Presumably, it was felt that "Piano Lesson" was an overall tittle for the sequence, but it was listed as a separate song in the production's playbill, which is another reason we list it.


The song listed as "Pick-a-Little, Talk-a-Little" was listed in the production's playbills as "Pickalittle." 


On the recording, Harold and Marian's "Seventy-Six Trombones" and "Goodnight My Someone" duet near the end of the show leads directly into the closing reprise of "Seventy-Six Trombones." All issues we have found of the recording do not list the Harold and Marian duet at all, but instead list the entire sequence as "Finale." We have nonetheless chosen to include the duet of "Seventy-Six Trombones" and "Goodnight My Someone" as a number here. In this choice, we follow the production's playbills.


The Broadway Angel CD issue of this recording mistakenly lists Vern Reed as a performer in "Rock Island." It should be Paul Reed, and we list Paul Reed here.


LP issues list the musical numbers on the back of the jacket, but do not list the performers or characters heard in the various numbers. The names of the performers were included, however, on the labels found on each side of the record itself.
