" fourteen hitherto unpublished performances" on front of sleeve. 1949 recordings.

"An H.M.V. recording, released for its members in Australia by World Record Club."

Australian WRC pressing, sourced from original stampers and featuring unique sleeve art. There is a stereo rosette on the rear of the sleeve, which seems unlikely, given the 1949 recording date. [At least] five versions exist, with sleeves in yellow, blue, apricot, green and pink, and there are release dates of January 1977, August 1978, August 1979, June 1980 and November 1981, but it is unknown which is which.
