stereo pressings of "Saturday Night With Mr. C." excluded the track
Rain or Come Shine" despite having
the title clearly printed on the jacket. It is assumed that this 'cut'
had something to do with space limitations within the new stereo format LP
recording. This song was re-released in 1967 within the RCA Camden
compilation "Hello, Young Lovers,"
CAS-2122 (e), but the
stereo version was electronically reprocessed from monaural.
The first known release of " Come Rain
Shine" in real stereo was in 1989 within a CD compilation titled "The
Harold Arlen Songbook" RCA 9936-2-R ( VA ), featuring songs of the
composer Harold Arlen by various artists. Strangely, a companion CD
released at the same time, "The
Johnny Mercer Songbook" RCA 9788-2-R ( VA ), featuring songs
composed by Johnny Mercer, contained the same selection in monaural.
