Judy Room Spotlight on A Star is Born Section

A Star Is Born


ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This is the rare 3-disc 45rpm "extended play" set featuring all the songs including the "Born In A Trunk" sequence along with the rest of the songs from the soundtrack. The 2-disc version also released this same year did not include the "Born In A Trunk" sequence.

Likewise, this 3-disc version is actually a double gatefold housing all three records in their own sleeve (3 sleeves total, with photos and text inside each one). The tracks on the records are arranged to be stacked together, played in sequence then flipped over to play the rest. These new stackable turntables were all the rage and allowed the listener to hear almost all of the music without having to get up and flip a record every 3 - 4 minutes.
