1st release is in a gatefold jacket with drawing of a guitar on the front, a photo of Mary Martin and the children on the back and extensive notes and photos of the production inside.

This was Columbia's first cast album issued in a gatefold cover, and carrying the KOL/KOS prefix which priced the release $1 higher.

In the mid 1960s Columbia pressed another batch of the LP using a standard jacket with the photo of Mary and the kids on the front and re-printing the synopsis only on the back. The catalog number and higher price remained the same.
