Notes

This is the very first vinyl LP pressed for the (soon to be announced) "12 inch LPs" for the Columbia catalog, and is considered the first (modern) 12 inch LP ever.

This LP also coincides with the 1st 10" LP The Voice Of Frank Sinatra that Columbia Records unveiled at a press conference in the Waldorf Astoria in June 1948.

This is the first pressing, with "LONG PLAYING MICROGROOVE" on two lines, a large 'LP' logo at the bottom right and two lines of rim text and circular icons of the double quaver and microphone to the left of the text. This label appears to have stopped in September, 1948. Later versions have the "LONG PLAYING MICROGROOVE" on one line at the bottom of the labels with the 'LP' logo in the center of the text.

Notes from rear jacket: This Columbia Long Playing LP Record is a modern high quality musical reproduction worthy of your special care: Always keep it away from heat and in the protective envelope.

    Forgive me, please! Should be ATLANTIC CITY - and not Atlanta City!!! By the way, the 75th LP's birthday is coming. I mean 18.06.2023.

      Just a few remarks... 1/ Columbia presentation in Hotel Waldorf Astoria was made on 18.06.1948. So, I believe it should be considered as date of release of all 101 LPs presented then incl. ML 4001. 2/ 21.06.1948 was a day of internal Columbia dealers convention in Atlanta City. 3/ If the LP was born on 18.06.1948 in Waldorf Astoria, so, there were 101 chronologically first LPs. 4/ That initial Columbia catalog was organized in alphabetical order of composers. So, ML 4001 with Mendelssoh could not open this list. 5/ It was ML 4002 with Bach. 6/ 10" CL 6001 "The Voice of Frank Sinatra" was among those 101 LPs ex Waldorf Astoria.
      For more details, please, look at my www.historyoflongplay.com.

        We can still find the Columbia ML4001, the first LP, by exhaustive searches through boxes of dusty records in their original blue and white top-open paper envelopes. Good luck!

          Found a copy today (Aug 19, 2016) in my local consignment store. Far from perfect but definitely worth One US Dollar! Feels like I own an important piece of history.
