- Shown is the first Philips release of this Duke Ellington 10 inch album, with front cover flaps folded around the top and bottom edges to be glued in place on the back cover. The cover is not laminated.
- 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.
