Recorded in "Living Stereo"All tracks recorded for real stereo but this release appears to be monaural only.
 
This new format compilation album appears to have been introduced circa as an alternative to the RCA Victor 45 RPM Extended Play format which ended at the same time. Compact 33 Double albums, their name taken from the long-play album format, were introduced as mini-versions of popular albums at the same RPM and with the small hole of their big brother LP. This particular compilation, however, was likely produced to simply provide "fill" to the new offering. The format did not survive. 
 
All tracks in this compilation were monaural.
