Another in the series of Harbinger’s much-anticipated Walden reissues. Harbinger celebrates the music of George Gershwin with two LPs on one CD of songs by the Gershwin brothers. Never before issued on CD, this set stars Kaye Ballard and features Louise Carlyle, David Craig, Warren Galjour and Betty Gillett. The cover continues the Walden tradition with a Hirschfeld drawing commissioned especially for this record.

Liner notes are by Walden co-founder (and Gershwin biographer) Edward Jablonski.
