The 45rpm version of this album, also a four record box set, had exactly the same tracklist.
The numbers of the 45rpm discs were: F-532, F-533, 54-534, and F-535.


The Wikipedia item on this album states that it was issued by Columbia Records. That’s an error, of course. The artists who performed the songs from Cole Porter’s musical ‘Kiss Me, Kate’ for Columbia were Alfred Drake and Patricia Morison, as well as members of the original cast (Lisa Kirk, Annabelle Hill, Harold Lang, Edwin Clay, Charles Wood, Lorenzo Fuller, Eddie Sledge, Fred Davis, and Jack Diamond).
