An incomplete version of the recording, with 16 tracks, was issued on LP, CD and cassette tape in 1988. In 1994, an expanded version was issued on CD.

These six tracks on the 1994 issue were not on the original 1988 release:

  • Candide Begins His Travels
  • Candide's Lament
  • Ring Around a Rosy
  • Words, Words, Words
  • King's Barcarolle

There was also a "Golden Operetta Highlights" version issued on 1988, featuring just 12 tracks.
