  • This album was probably first released in 1951. The earliest references I found on are from April 1953, but since album A 00110 L was released in late 1951 (according to an ad shown on the website of Stichting Vinyl Voorgoed – see links page), I guess this album was released in 1951 as well. In the Philips ad on Delpher, shown in “Vrije Geluiden” (April 25, 1953) this album is mentioned as a winner of the Grand Prix Du Disque 1953. The award ceremony apparently took place in early 1953 and I assume it looked back at the previous year. This seems a bit inconsistent…

  • The cover shown here has the speed designation unboxed, while the labels show this information boxed. It indicates that this is a repress or reissue, using the first cover and an LP pressing with new labels.
