(Note: This and "Swing Mr. Charlie" were recorded with the popular jazz band Bob Crosby & His Orchestra. When the record was released, no orchestra accompaniment was given. The band's manger, Gil Rodin, told Decca that they didn't want to use their name with "this unknown girl.")

MARCH OF THE DOAGIES
(Note: This recording was not given a Record Number because the song was cut from the film "The Harvey Girls" prior to release of the film and the "Decca Cast Album" of songs from the film. It finally had its official U.S. release in 1984 on the MCA Records LP "Judy Garland - From The Decca Vaults" [MCA-907].
Also of note: the version included on the above mentioned album and the 1994 CD boxed set "Judy Garland - The Complete Decca Masters (plus)" [MCAD4/C4-11059/D 207185] was recorded on May 14, 1945. Additional recordings were made on May 15; September 7; & September 10, 1945. Evidently the only version to survive is the May 14, 1945 version).

(Note: This is the complete original version Parts 1 & 2 - Part 1 had its debut on the 1994 CD boxed set "Judy Garland - The Complete Decca Masters (plus)" [MCAD4/C4-11059/D 207185]).

Part 2 (Judy's vocal) of this song was re-recorded on 09-10-1945 and that is the version heard on the original 78 album. When Decca began re-releasing these recordings on LP in the 1950's, they mistakenly released this May 1945 rejected version of Part 2. This May 1945 version begins with Judy singing "What A Lovely Trip" as she does in the film, and ends with the repeat of the song title 3 times at the end (again as in the film). This "rejected" version can be found on the 1989 CD "Judy Garland - The Best Of The Decca Years Volume One - Hits!" [MCAD-31345]

ON THE ATCHISON, TOPEKA & THE SANTA FE (short version, minus the choral intro - short ending)
(Note: This is the recording that was originally released on 78 as part of the original "Decca Cast Album". When the cast album was re-released on LP in the 1950's, Decca mistakenly used the rejected 05-15-1945 version of Part 2. This September re-recording of Part 2 was not released in the United States on LP until 1984, when it was included on the MCA Records LP "Judy Garland - From The Decca Vaults" [MCA-907]. It begins with Judy singing "What A Lovely Day" (instead of "What A Lovely Trip" as in the film and the May recording) and ends with the "short tag" (no repeat of the song title as in the May recording and the film). This is also the version included in the 1994 CD boxed set "Judy Garland - The Complete Decca Masters (plus)" [MCAD4/C4-11059/D 207185] and coupled with the previously unreleased
Part 1).

It is also included in the 1994 CD boxed set "Judy Garland - The Complete Decca Masters (plus)" [MCAD4/C4-11059/D 207185]).
