- The earliest reference to this album I could find, is from March 8, 1952 (you can see it here). The website of Stichting Vinyl Voorgoed (see Links page) assumes this is a 1952 release, because no ads from 1951 can be found where this album is mentioned. I assume this is correct and thus take 1952 as the year of release.
- The album shown first above is an early reissue, from 1952/53. The first pressing came in a different (standard) cover and had the speed designation unboxed on the red with golden labels. It had a gatefold cover – click here to see it on Discogs.
- The second album shown is a third pressing from 1953/54, with a new cover, designed for this release. It still has a cover made of one piece with front cover flaps folded around the top and bottom edges to be glued in place on the back cover. An employee from Rijken & De Lange, a piano shop still in existence, which sold LP’s back in the day, felt like pasting stickers all over the release; front cover, labels and even at the inside of the cover. It used to be common practice, though luckily this was mostly done in a more modest way.
- The third album shown has a more sophisticated cover construction (tip-on) and is probably from 1955 – the text “All Philips records are high fidelity records!” is missing, which makes it pre-1956.
- This album has also been released in the 10 inch format on Philips A 00766 R and on Philips G 05332 R.
- In the US, this album was released on Epic LC 3002, c. 1953/54.
