- Shown is what appears to be the first release of this Duke Ellington 10 inch album. The text ‘All Philips records are high fidelity records!’ is not shown on the back cover and there’s no lamination.
- This release is shown in the August 1953 Philips/Decca catalogue (‘Hoofdcatalogus no. 19’) and it was originally released on US Columbia CL 6024 in 1949; also released as a four disc 78rpm album (Columbia C-164) and a four disc 45rpm set (Columbia B-164). The latter may be from the early 1950’s.
