This is one of the most beautifully produced tapes I have heard in my collection, but at the same time, this is one of the stranger kind of Reel Tape I bought from Ebay. Whoever bought this tape brand new also loved Keely Smith and Louis Prima so much, they spliced the two tape albums together on one reel! I don't know what tape album Keely Smith and Louis Prima came from, but Side One of that tape played first, followed by Side One of the Previn/Rose tape. Then it was Side Two of Previn/Rose, followed by Side Two of Keely Smith and Louis Prima. I figured most people want to hear the entire tape album of Previn/Rose first. So after I recorded the whole thing on the computer, I rearranged the recordings around so Previn/Rose both sides play first, followed by both sides of the Keely Smith/Louis Prima Tape.

Louis And Keely!
Great recording and collection!
The Louis Prima & Keely Smith material is from the album Louis and Keely!, released in 1959 on Dot Records (although you seem to have reversed the sides). There are some wonderful versions of classic songs here.
