This special edition
version of "Saturday Night With Mr. C." may actually have been
released prior to the vinyl album in early 1958. This tape is either an
edited version of the intended release, from which a number of tracks are
missing, or the full release may have been expanded following. The tape
version does include a stereo version of "Come Rain or Come
Shine" which was later deleted from stereo versions of the vinyl
release apparently due to space limitations. The tape is described as
being 7½ inches per second and requiring "In-Line" Heads on the
tape reproducing equipment ( later described as half-track ). The tape's
description as being "Stereo-Orthophonic" instead of
"Living Stereo" is further evidence that this tape pre-dates the
vinyl release. Tape recording time is approximately 25:23.
