Annotation

This 2000 reissue of the 1947 original Broadway cast restores a missing passage of "Look to the Rainbow," replaces "The Begat" with a superior take, and adds a previously unreleased version of "That Great Come-and-Get-It Day." In three bonus tracks, Harburg sings and presents "How Are Things in Glocca Morra?" and "When I'm Not Near the Girl I Love" for a live audience, and Harburg sings a song cut from the production, "Don't Pass Me By," with Lane at the piano.
