The EMI uses the angel/gramophone label and the HMV has the color Nipper label that was in use in the 30s.
I got the Roberto box at the ARSC silent auction last year. I believe the video was on Youtube. I didn't know about the other two. Were they master poressings? I suppose Clififie-poo was trying to keep his record from going into the public domain!
