The "Soliloquy" on my recording is only about a minute and a half long. Is this unusual?

Not for this recording, as all of the songs featured (with the exception of "If I Loved You") are heavily abriged. I believe it was recorded in this fashion because they were originally intended to fit the four sides of a double 78-rpm record set.

Thank you, Broadway_Guy. Incidentally, the only song I had listened to before listening to "Soliloquy" was "If I Loved You," so my expectations for this recording were the same as for the other, less abridged versions I've heard.
