Principal cast includes: Judy Garland (Jo Hayden); Gene Kelly (Harry Palmer).
Recorded in Hollywood, California in 1942.
The World War I era and the field of vaudeville provided the setting for the romantic triangle plot of MGM's 1942 movie musical For Me and My Gal, and all of it was an excuse to hear Judy Garland, George Murphy, up-and-coming star Gene Kelly, and others perform vintage songs from the early days of Tin Pan Alley like the title tune, "When You Wore a Tulip," and "After You've Gone," as well as some vintage war-themed numbers that were newly timely in the months after Pearl Harbor. The movie appeared several years before the vogue for soundtrack albums came in, and while Garland and Kelly made a studio recording of "For Me and My Gal" that became a Top Ten hit, it took until 1996 for Rhino Records to come up with an audio version of the score. Meanwhile, the film had gone out of copyright in Europe, which enables the European label The Soundtrack Factory to issue its own unlicensed version. It looks, however, as though someone just took a copy of the Rhino album and cut it down a little (about seven minutes, to be exact), since there are some outtakes here that first appeared on that disc. That would make the question of legality more problematic. In any case, this version is inferior in every way to the Rhino album, from its length to its skimpy, typo-filled annotations. Technically, it is not available in the U.S., though practically it was easy to purchase upon release, usually for a much lower price than the Rhino disc. ~ William Ruhlmann
