The 78 rpm version was issued as an extra large, 12-inch record (while 10-inch discs were the standard for 78rpm records).

In most (general and Jo Stafford) discographies, this record is indicated with catalog numbers 7-90032 and (for the 45rpm version) 6F-90032. However, these are the numbers of a 1950 re-issue.
I have seen a 1949 Billboard ad and a picture of the 78 rpm label, indicating that 79-90032 and
64-90032 are the right catalog numbers for the 1949 issue of this record.

The choir featuring on this recording is The Jud Conlon Singers, while the organ was played by Buddy Cole. Their names were not mentioned on the record's label.
