Notes[edit]

On the original Lehrer Records release of Revisited, tracks 1–6 (side 1) were recorded live on November 23 & 24, 1959, in Kresge Auditorium at MIT in Cambridge, MA, while tracks 7–13 (side 2) were recorded live at two concerts during Lehrer's tour of Australia in spring 1960 (March 21 in Melbourne and May 4 in Sydney).

Because of issues with the sound quality of the Australian recordings, England's Decca Records assembled its release of the album solely from the MIT concert tapes. The Decca configuration was the basis for the 1990 Reprise/Warner Bros. CD reissue.[1]

The cover photograph was taken at Royal Festival Hall in London, England, UK, after his performance there on June 29, 1960. Tracks 14 and 15 were recorded May 28, 1971, and December 14, 1972.[1]
