NOTES


The album’s cover says that Ms Stafford was accompanied by ‘Paul Weston and his Music From Hollywood’ (the new name of Paul Weston’s orchestra, introduced in the spring of 1956). However, the orchestra still did not bear this name when the tracks of this album were recorded.
‘A Gal Named Jo’ was issued in Columbia’s ‘House Party’ series, a series of budget price 10-inch LP’s marketed in 1955 and 1956 (catalog numbers CL 2501 through CL 2606).
According to Jim Marshall’s Jo Stafford Discography, ‘Little Man With a Candy Cigar’ and ‘Taking A Chance On Love’ were first issued on Columbia CL 2591. However, these two songs were already on the track list of the EP 
‘Thank You For Calling’, issued in 1954.
