Yes, the prefix WAX is correct, that is what is in the wax (i.e. circled W,
then AX-1608-1-A-F-1). The label however, shows LX-1608 in parenthesis
under the record number 72291-D (from set MM-184). The flip side of the
record has the WLX-1599 matrix. It's a blue American CBS trademark label,
not the blue English "Magic Notes" or "Viva Tonal" label, or the green
French "Magic Notes" label.
The researcher would like to know if we have an alternate take for side 4
(WLX1602-2). I had it right the first time. His information indicates
that an alternate take for this matrix was also issued. The title for that
matrix is Tango (completion); Waltz; Ragtime. We don't have that
one. Does anyone else?
