LIMITED EDITION IN SPECIAL 3-PANEL DIGIPACK
2 COMPLETE ALBUMS ON 1 CD

Presented in their entireties on this set are Wiley’s splendid LPs "Night in Manhattan" (Columbia CL-656) and "Sings Vincent Youmans & Irving Berlin" (Columbia CL-6215/16). These two albums comprise the contents of three 10” discs: the original "Night in Manhattan", and the Youmans and Berlin song books, which were first issued individually with eight tracks each (on the latter two Wiley is backed by the piano duet of Stan Freeman and Cy Walter). In order to fit all of this material onto two 12” LPs, four tunes from the song books were added to the 12” version of Night in Manhattan (with the remaining 12 tracks from the song books released on the 12” album Sings Vincent Youmans & Irving Berlin).

This edition also includes two rare bonus tracks originally issued on the 1956 Columbia LP "The Wide, Wide World of Jazz" (RCA Victor LPM-1325), which was an anthology featuring various artists.
