Australian WRC 2nd pressing, sourced from original stampers and featuring unique sleeve art. "PLE 818" on sleeve, "PLH-818" on labels (no doubt for "Popular Light Entertainment" and Popular Light Hawaiian" respectively). Issued solely in mono. Still issued as a 'dividend' release, offered at a low price (15 shillings, instead of the regular 35) for club members who had bought one LP or more in the previous 12 months - available into 1964 (unknown if further pressing variations exist, although the credit for The Griffin Press, at bottom right on the rear of the sleeve, might be expected to disappear).

The 2nd pressing was issued on standard WRC beige 'strobe' labels. The sleeve design (including the address combination) is unchanged.
