Other notes of interest printed on back of sleeve:
"Six Jerks In A Jeep" from the motion picture "Private Bukaroo".
"Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy", Alt. Take features an entirely different trumpet solo as well as a few other subtle changes.
"Don't Fence Me In" is a prime example of a Decca Studio outtake, complete with breakup. We hear Bing suddenly go into his own original lyrics and melody in the midst of our arrangement of the classic Cole Porter composition.
"I Love You Much Too Much", was the first time Patty Andrews did an entire solo, although she had always sang the lead with the trio, this was her very first complete solo.

Additional notes of interest not available on release:
"You're Just A Flower From An Old Bouquet", ballad from the film "Give Out, Sisters".
"Long Time No See", early version of a song that they recut for release later in 1939.
"Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" has different arrangements for the horn and trombone sections.
"A Jitterbug's Lullaby", is actually the first section of a two-part song, a reject from an August 1938 session.
"Hit The Road", a song playing on slang, from the movie "Argentine Nights".
