Originally, it was announced that the recording would be a two-record set containing all the musical numbers. Columbia ended up not only recording but issuing virtually the entire show, which required three records on its initial release. The recording contains all the music and almost all the dialogue performed in the production. All that is missing is a short scene preceding "I Like Everybody." When issued on CD, only two CDs were necessary to contain the complete recording.
A single record of highlights was also issued.
