Possibly a dumb question - just picked up a copy of this at a used store. It's most likely a repress, and it's got the full, non-abridged 16-song tracklist, but the runout number is "W1-581-N49" for side one, and "W2-581-N29" for side two. Looking thru all the US versions of the album, including the represses, anything with the label number W581 or W-581, none of these versions match the runout numbers of the copy i have. Anybody have an answer for which version my copy is?

Is it just a mistake that the date here says 1959 (instead of 1955)? I read that this was Sinatra's first 12" album, so it would seem odd that it wasn't released on 12" vinyl until four years after it was recorded. The 10" versions states 1955 here on Discogs, and there's also another version here on Discogs with the "rainbow rim" label that states 1959 as the year, so I would think this is just a mistake.
