ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This is the 10" version of the Decca "Girl Crazy Cast Album", even though by 1952 Decca decided to call it "Selections From" Girl Crazy. It stands to reason that Decca would release the songs from Girl Crazy in several formats. As previously noted, the combination of Judy's voice and the Gershwin's songs is unbeatable.
Australian Version
Also in 1953, Decca released a "long playing" 45rpm record of Judy's solos from the cast album, titled "Judy Garland - Selections From Girl Crazy". The late 1940's and early 1950's saw all the record companies putting out 78rpm, 45rpm, and 33 1/3 rpm versions of the same albums. Which means that in some cases us collectors get to choose from a wide variety of artwork.

Note: The complete album was not released on LP until DRG Records, Inc. included it as part of their 1979 release "Judy Garland - The Beginning".

Judy's songs are included in the 1994 CD boxed set "Judy Garland - The Complete Decca Masters (plus)" (MCAD4/C4-11059/D 207185).
