The fact remains that as presented I won't be playing it again, if 
indeed I play it through once and to have endlessly listen to those 
pontificaters Michael Feinstein, Wynton Marsalis (yes, him again), Hugh 
Hefner and Leonard Maltin.

I imagine that those interested in Soundies will want the full versions. 
Others who know little or nothing about them probably won't be 
interested anyway.

I got mine from Worlds Records--no mention of excerpts.
