Soundtrack from Holiday Inn is a soundtrack album of Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire singing Irving Berlin songs that were taken directly from the musical film Holiday Inn. This soundtrack was first released on vinyl LP. These songs differ slightly and are often faster to save time than the ones released to the public on 78 rpm phonograph records.

Release history[edit]

It was not until 1979, 37 years after the making of the film, that a full soundtrack was released on Sunbeam Records (STK-112) of the songs in the movie.[1]

In 2004, the Soundtrack Factory label released a soundtrack of the original recordings taken directly from the movie.[2] Martha Mears performed Marjorie Reynolds singing in the movie, so it is she who is performing on this recording as well.
