Recorded at Nola Penthouse Sound Studiios, New York, February 22, 1961.

This album was recorded monophonically and stereophonically directly to two-track and full-track master tapes on Ampex 300's using the following microphones: Neumann U-47; EV 667; RCA 44BX. The Master Lacquers were cut directly from the original master tapes on a Neumann lathe using a Westrex 2B cutter for mono and a Westrex 3C for stereo. The frequency response of both systems if flat plus or minus 1/2 DB from 30 cycles to 15000 cycles. This recording is patterned to the RIAA curve and will give true frequency response if playback equipment is set for the RIAA playback characteristic.
