It's a delightful misprint, regardless!
I remember when Capitol introduced the "G" series in the USA after about
1957/8 and began to issue HMV recordings on it. The first one I bought was
Beecham's mono version of the Franck Symphony. Then his Berlioz Symphonie
Fantastique and much more by others. Inferior Capitol mastering, but decent pressings.
Thanks for all, David.

Could be my faulty memory..definitely a Capitol G- issue and a modern recording, but probably not Beecham in that case. The misprint definitely occurred though (probably only on the Canadian issue).
