Another Holbrook vinyl record was Highlights From The CBS Television Network
Special. I also recall the first two albums being packaged together as a two
cassette set, in the 80s sometime, I think.

There are two original cast recordings issued in 1961, "Hal Holbrook in
Mark=  Twain Tonight" and "More Hal Holbrook in Mark Twain Tonight". In 2002
"The B= est of Hal Holbrook in Mark Twain Tonight" was released.  It is
probably a c= ompilation of the two original albums and can be downloaded on
