The four bonus tracks included here represent the first authorized digital release of excerpts from two early studio recordings of music from Carousel. The abridged version of “If I Loved You” features Doretta Morrow and John Raitt. “What’s the Use of Wond’rin’” is sung by Morrow. Jay Blackton conducts the orchestra on these tracks, which first appeared on a 10-inch LP released in 1953 in the RCA Victor "Show Time" series. The extended version of “If I Loved You” and the complete version of Billy Bigelow’s “Soliloquy” that follow are taken from a complete recording of Carousel produced by RCA Victor in 1955 with Lehman Engel conducting, featuring American opera stars Robert Merrill as Billy and Patrice Munsel as Julie. Richard Rodgers himself wrote a short liner note for this recording,which he ended with the words, “It is my hope that you will enjoy the splendid artists who have made this album as much as I enjoy them.”
