“Original first pressing on Blue Note NY labels” with VAN GELDER stamp however an anomaly, as 4118 lacks the all important Plastylite “ear” mark in the run-out, indicating the release was possibly out of catalogue number sequence at a later date. Expert opinion suggests the record, recorded at the end of 1961, was released in 1962, however the missing ear usually indicates a Liberty pressing after 1966.
