Facts about

Not all the singers in the film were featured on the 78-rpm soundtrack album released by MGM Records. Among those missing artists, both Dinah Shore and Frank Sinatra and Dinah Shore were under contract to Columbia Records, which had in the marketplace 78-rpm platters of Frank's "Ol' Man River" (lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II), a recording (arranged and conducted by Axel Stordahl) cut on December 3, 1944; and Dinah (with Morris Stoloff's Orchestra) singing "They Didn't Believe Me" (lyrics by Herbert Reynolds), from Miss Shore's 78-rpm album, "A Date With Dinah," reviewed in the May 3, 1947 issue of Billboard magazine. Both Columbia sides have been transferred to Sony CDs: Mr. Sinatra's on a 1998 box set called "The Best of The Columbia Years: 1943-1952," and Miss Shore's on her 1991 collection of "16 Most Requested Songs." Represented on a film-score CD released in 2000 by The Soundtrack Factory, a Spanish label, are the two film recordings by Dinah and Frank, with the disc also featuring Dinah's rendition of the Oscar-winning song of 1941, "The Last Time I Saw Paris" (lyrics by
Tony Martin, already identified, via his December 19, 1939 Decca recording, with the incomparable ballad, "All the Things You Are" (lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II ), waxed another version for Mercury around the time of the film's Manhattan debut. Mercury paired Tony's remake with his solo of "Make Believe" (lyrics by Hammerstein) on a 78-rpm single. The MGM Records soundtrack album featured, as part of the "Show Boat" medley, Tony singing "Who Cares If My Boat Goes Up Stream?" (lyrics by Hammerstein) and a Martin-Kathryn Grayson duet of "Make Believe." On CD, Tony's one Decca side has a place on "Hear My Song" from the British label Flare in 1999; his two recordings from December 21, 1946 (first issued on a single one full year later) count among "The Best of Tony Martin: The Mercury Years," issued in 1996; and all of his movie vocals are contained on film-score releases from Sony in 1992 and then by The Soundtrack Factory, a Spanish label, in 2000.
