Fennell Conducts Gershwin The Studio Recordings. As indicated, this is in fact half of the program that was reissued on (434 327) Frederick Fennell conducts Cole Porter & George Gershwin The Studio Recordings.They derived from two different LPs (recorded in 1960 and 1961) and Wilma Cozart Fine had sensibly gathered them on one CD, but for some reason Universal has seen fit to dispatch them back on two short running ones (this one times 36 minutes) - possibly, to present them as a triology with the Victor Herbert program on CD 15. Indeed, these three programs were NOT recorded with Robert Fine's usual three microphones, but heavily multi-miked, and they were not released, back in the LP era, on the "Living Presence" series, but on their "Perfect Sound Series" (PPS). See my review of the Gerswhin/Porter CD for more details on this. Fennell Conducts Victor Herbert (The Streets of New York, Habanera, I'm Falling In Love With Someone, March Of the Toys, Sweethearts, Ah Sweet Mystery of Life, Italian Street Song, The Irish Have a Great Day Tonight, A Kiss in the Dark, Romany Life, Thine Alone, Kiss Me Again).
