ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:
This is a rare
Australian 7" 45rpm "Extended
Play" version of the American

This set was released in "simulated stereo", a process that
was very popular at the time (MGM Records used the process in some
of their soundtrack reissues). The "simulated stereo" was
created by taking mono recordings and adding some echo, and upping
the bass on the left channel and upping the treble on the right channel.
For me this process was always a little discerning. I had a button
on my old receiver that switched the sound to mono, so I would use
that button to listen to the "stereo" records.
All of these recordings have since
been released on many CD compilations.
The most notable being:
1989 MCA (Decca) "Judy Garland -
The Best Of The Decca Years Volume One - Hits!" (MCAD-31345).
1992 MCA (Decca) "Judy Garland
- Changing My Tune - The Best Of The Decca Years Vol Two" (MCAD-10504)
1994 MCA (Decca) boxed set "Judy Garland
- The Complete Decca Masters (plus)" (MCAD4/C4-11059/D 207185).
