Notes:

  • The earliest reference to this album I could find, is from March 8, 1952 (a not on line consultable article from “Het Binnenhof”). This could mean this album was released in 1952, but times back then were not as fast as they are now, so I take this into account and to play safe, I date this one as from 1951/52.

  • The album shown first above seems to be a second press, from 1952/53. The first pressing came in a different (standard) cover and had the speed designation unboxed on the red with gold labels. It had a gatefold cover – click here to see it on Discogs. The year given on Discogs is 1952, but that could be wrong.

  • 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.

  • Note that this album has also been released in the 10 inch format; on Philips A 00766 R and on Philips G 05332 R.
