Notes

Japan-for-U.S. CD issue of original Varèse Sarabande VCDM 1000.10 LP configuration, with the addition of one previously unreleased track ("Fanfare For Freedom"), all taken from 1979 digital recording sessions performed by Morton Gould and The London Symphony Orchestra under the personal supervision of Dr. Thomas Stockham. The release includes an eight-page booklet with a brief note concerning "Fanfare For Freedom" by Tom Null; liner notes by the composer/conductor concerning the other selections; a black-and-white photo of the composer/conductor; and color front and back covers, the former featuring a reproduction of a painting by an unidentified artist, and the latter featuring a color photo of the composer/conductor. (The title of the release is given as "Morton Gould Conducts Morton Gould" on both the back of the inlay card and the CD label; as "Morton Gould Conducts His Latin American Symphonette, Philharmonic Waltzes, Quickstep, Festive Music, Cotillion, Windjammer, Fanfare For Freedom" on the booklet; and as "Latin-American Symphonette" on the spine -- since the first iteration is mentioned twice, I believe it to be the correct title!)
