Overdub Alternate

Two different overdubs of "Felicia" were included in the Bear Family box. Although both versions stem from the same vocal performance, there were enough differences in the instrumental tracks to warrant inclusion of both. The version not included on The Beautiful Ballads album was previously unreleased.

Overdubs

Cole died before he could record Capitol versions of songs from the film Cat Ballou. Because of this, producer Lee Gillette used the vocals from the soundtrack recordings Cole made for Columbia in September 1964. One month after Cole's death, Ralph Carmichael arranged and conducted the backing tracks that were combined with Cole's earlier vocals.

Split Session

This was a split session with trumpeter Bobby Bryant, whose trumpet solos can also be heard in Cole's final album, L-O-V-E.
