– Philips 400 004 AE

This EP was originally released in 1955. 1955 is supposed to be the first year Philips produced 7 inch singles and EP’s (not counting the mini 78rpm records). The first release came in a paper-like sleeve (with folded flaps glued on top of the back cover and no lamination); it came earlier than the laminated version shown here which also shows the text “All Philips records are high fidelity records” on the back.
