PLEASE NOTE: A confusing note on the CD case information. The recording for City Lights do sound like the original recording from the 1931 film and not the recordings by Davis in the late 1980s, but they have listed Carl Davis as conducting music one through nine of City Lights. Davis did NOT conduct the original 1931 recordings of City Lights. So upon hearing this recording, with all its pops and cracks, this is a not correctly listed on the CD information. I would guess part of the overall confusion, on these collections.
Information and image from my personal collection.
It has Chaplin singing, 'Swing Little Girl', 'The Nonsense Song', the 'Smile' theme (listed here as #16 The Final - It wouldn't be known as Smile until 1954, when the words were added), and 'The Violet Seller' theme.
This one is getting hard to find and may have to order used.
I have the Amazon link which you could check to see when available used. Also check eBay.
