  • This is a South-American album which has some mysterious details. It could be a mix-up as the cover mentions Argentina and the LP mentions Uruguay. You can see this in the enlarged details above (scans 5 & 6). As these are neighbouring and Spanish speaking countries, it could be a correct coupling as well. The label lay-out is from the 1960’s and if this coupling is correct, maybe overstock covers from the 1950’s were used for 1960’s vinyl pressings.

  • This LP was originally recorded and released in 1958 in the Netherlands with the same catalog number, but with a different cover.

  • The word ‘minigroove’ in the logo on the front cover is in Spanish and reads ‘microsurco’, which means ‘microgroove’, rather than ‘minigroove’. Another odd detail. See also this post for two other albums from Argentina.

  • The text ‘All Philips records are high fidelity records!’ is given in Spanish here as: ‘Todos los discos editados par Philips son Alta Fidelidad’.
