Liner notes: 

This album marks a major advancement in the art of recording!

It contains 50 selections, far more than have ever been included on any one LP since the Long Playing record was first introduced 15 years ago. Technical advances in the science of recording, allowing more playing time per record, and tremendously improved quality control, have made it possible for United Artists to issue this precedent setting disk, and others in the “Fabulous Fifty” series.

The fifty favorites in this album are played in dazzling fashion by the brilliant duo-piano team of Ferrante and Teicher. During the past five years Ferrante and Teicher have become world-wide favorites through their hit single and album recording of outstanding tunes from movies, Broadway musicals, and standards written by top songsmiths of today and yesterday. In that five year period it is estimate that they have sold more records than any other piano duo recording today.

Ferrante and Teicher display their remarkable way with a song, and their fascinating duo-piano technique, on every one of the 50 tunes contained on this new recording. Here is a well-nigh complete catalog of the popular piano favorites of this century, given new life and freshness by the dynamic and dramatic piano team of Ferrante and Teicher.
