NotesOriginal Broadway Cast - Live Recording
Limited Collector's Edition
This recording of "Drat! The Cat!" is taken from a rare audio tape made through a theater's sound system. While perfectly listenable, this monaural LP pressing may not achieve the fidelity found in today's more advanced methods of recording. However, we feel the rarity of this material justifies its release, even with occasional, almost unnoticeable, audio imperfections.
