Trivia & History

The original LP release on Warner Bros. did not include ”Another Hundred People,” but it was added for the CD release on RCA VIctor. The overture was heard in a cut version on the LP but was issued complete on the CD release.


Due to technical difficulties, neither the original LP release on Warner Bros. nor the later RCA CD release included the performance of ”Could I Leave You?” heard at the concert. There were technical difficulties with this number as recorded at the performance. David Hummel's book The Collector's Guide to the American Musical Theatre states that it was re-recorded in a studio. It seems possible, however, that the performance that appears on the commercial issues was recorded at the dress rehearsal as the basic sound quality is similar to that of the rest of the recording rather than sounding like it was recorded in a studio.

The performance on the commercial releases is audibly different from the concert performance. The most obvious difference is that at the concert, Alexis Smith made an error in the line ”Sullen glares from those injured eyes,” singing ”your” instead of ”those.” On the commercial releases, ”those” is heard.
