Sarah Vaughan in Hi-Fi is a 12 track compilation album by Sarah Vaughan released in 1955 and recorded from December 21, 1949 through December 1952.

History[edit]

In 1950, a 10" LP entitled Sarah Vaughn was released with eight songs that would later be used on Sarah Vaughn in Hi-Fi. [2][3]

In 1955, those eight songs, along with four others, were released on the 12" LP Sarah Vaughn in Hi-Fi. The order of the original eight songs was changed and the new songs were interspersed. [4]

In 1996, an expanded version of Sarah Vaughn in Hi-Fi was released on CD. The order of the original eight songs was switched back to that of the 1950 10" release. The four additional songs released on Sarah Vaughn in Hi-Fi then follow. After that, the CD contains bonus material - alternate versions of many of the songs. [5]
