Released: March 1959:

Sound Format: mono

UK Album No. (07)

This album used the same 1956 publicity photographs for the front and rear cover as the american album: 'For LP Fans Only'.

But that's where the similarity ends: The track-listings are different, as the U.S. album has ten songs, the U.K. one has fourteen.

Like the previous release 'Golden Records' this album also had no new material. 

Note: There was no reference to the artist's name or album title anywhere on the front sleeve, possibly the first LP to do so.

NOTE: This LP was issued using the matrix number K2PP. K2 = 1959         PP = Mono LP

Side 1: K2PP 0015     Side 2: K2PP 0016

This album was kept in stock by issuing re-pressings with the same catalogue number

until it was deleted by RCA in November 1970.
