Re-issue Notes:

Within 48 hours of updating this site and claiming that this double LP has never been released on CD, two individuals have separately e-mailed me to correct my information. My thanks to Christian Lefranc from Belgium and regular correspondent (and Discussion Board regular) Bill Darlington.
This album did in fact receive a limited CD release in 1985, although with too much material for a single CD, and not enough to fill two, Oriental (played as an encore at the live concerts) was not included.

Three of the Four LP sides were also used to expand the running time of the CD re-issues of the two studio LPs John Williams and Julian Bream recorded together:
The Fauré, Granados and Albeniz pieces are included on Together,
The Johnson, Telemann and Debussy compositions are included on Together Again.
