Judy Room Spotlight on A Star is Born Section

A Star Is Born


Back of booklet ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This 2005 release brings the soundtrack full circle. The A Star Is Born soundtrack selections on this CD are the original mono versions that were released for years on record until the 1988 CD release of the stereo soundtrack. These original mono versions have never been available on CD before. The two previous CDs (1988 & 2004) took the songs directly from the stereo soundtrack of the film. This is the only CD available with the soundtrack as it was released by Columbia Records (and its subsidiaries) for over 30 years.

The sound quality on the soundtrack selections isn't band for old mono recordings. Although they pale in comparison to the two stereo releases, they're still listenable. We're so used ot the complete stereo versions that it's now odd to hear these as originally released. A remastered, superior sounding version of this mono soundtrack edition of "The Man The Got Away" is featured on the 2008 2-CD set "Judy Garland - Classiques et inédits 1929 - 1956".

Contrary to what the CD states, the bonus tracks "from other Judy Garland films" are actually the Decca Records singles versions. The sound quality on these are not very good. Better to get one of the CD compilations as shown in the Decca Records Section of The Judy Garland Discography.
