The program notes promised on the back of the jacket had vanished by the time I bought a block letter, dogless label pressing c. 1974.

My copy is also missing program notes. It’s the Shaded Dog version pictured above. Hard to say whether the program notes were ever originally included or not. Maybe mine were lost?

Maybe yours were lost. My cover/label looks just like the photos above but there are program notes inside. It’s just four pages, basically one large sheet folded in half.

This is one of the best performances of an almost complete score…The chorus is marvelous and the narration is soft and very clear….The orchestra sounds wonderful and it is another superb recording engineered by Lewis Layton. Should have been a Living Stereo release…

Like the Beethoven Pastoral with Reiner and the CSO, this record also came out in a deluxe package with artwork in a large, folio like cover.

Well, that explains the missing program notes in my later issue then. Thanks much for the info, bassrome!

The insert – or “program notes” – should have been included in each record sleeve. Their absence means that they were accidentally not inserted at the pressing plant. I’m not surprised. I’ve seen copies of this album with the cover photo missing, and most shocking, a later “no dog” issue which misspelled the conductor’s first name as “Eric.” The large coffee-table book album with Victorian prints is quite lovely although impractical for storing on a standard record shelf. Each one is numbered, and can fetch a very high price on auction sites.
