I'm In The Mood for Love and You Are My Lucky Star are both
copybook-examples of the problem of physically different but musically
At least five physically different takes of I'm In The Mood for Love appear
on Decca 579 (-AA, -C, -E, -F, and G according to Mosaic). Some of them at
least have a different balance or other variations in the recorded signal,
but they are all of the same performance. Early collectors had to rely on
the take numbers in the wax to know what they¹d got and it was a long time
before enough cooies of these and many other 30s Decca recordings could be
brought together for people to realize what was happening.
So Lord is right here.
