Turn the record over, and you will see the number S-2-60212. The S-1-60212 and S-2-60212 are not the numbers of the record, but the numbers for the individual sides 1 and 2.

Actually even the original blue label release is from as late as June 1955, so the blue label was being used into 1955, and the six-eye label is later still. (A supposed release date of 14 February 1954 for this LP has been copied from place to place - ... See full review

That is not pressed in the USA, but (as should be obvious from the company name) in South Africa.

I calculate that if these had been the full-length versions of the tracks, the running time of the album would be approximately 64 minutes – roughly double the length of the average 1960s album, and much longer than can fit on a 12" LP without causing ... See full review

Where did you get that information? He definitely wasn't Cannonball Adderley: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pony_Poindexter

The back cover has printing information "McN4.63" = McNeil Press, April 1963. The original 1960 issue of this record had a triangular centre and has its own entry here.

Recently. Sometime in the last 10 to 15 years. I have seen new unplayed stock of several different Atlantic LPs with this label style in some shops, this decade.

This LP was released by Epic in the US in June 1960, not 1961. See "Packaged Records: Reviews and Ratings of New Albums", Billboard magazine, 13 June 1960, p. 38. All the versions whose release date is currently 1961 should probably be dated 1960 instead.

How can this be a Canadian release if it was pressed by the Scranton pressing plant in Pennsylvania?

Recorded in April 1955, not 1966. The MGM album was released already in 1956.

The "First published 1958" on the labels refers to the LP where these tracks were originally released (and which is mentioned on the back cover). This EP was released in 1965.

Definitely not recorded in 1955, because Johnny Ace died in 1954.

The Three Tunes are definitely not on "backing vocals", as listening to the LP will quickly show that there are no backing vocals whatsoever anywhere on any track!

It's actually the name given by Decca Records to the three musicians who recorded with ... See full review

LAT 10,001 is the only correct catalogue number. MGS 2348 is merely the matrix number of the A side (as MGS 2349 is of the B side).
