A very tardy reply to the message(s). I hope they are forwarded with this.
My copy of the Music Appreciation LP of Mozart's 39th Symphony conducted by
Szell is MAR 6225. The other side is indeed not another symphony, but Thomas
Scherman's analysis. (Interestingly, the analysis is side one, with a blue
label. The music is on side two, with a label in brown.)
Also, the performance is credited to "George Szell and his Symphony
Orchestra." As Lani wrote, the musicians were from the Cleveland Orchestra.

Yeah..2? I'll check my stash, but they only put 1 symphony per disc as a rule,
with the analysis on the flip side (or as a separate disc if you wanted, or if
the complete work took two sides).
Lots of good stuff on those MARs. Too bad they came just before stereo,
although I think I've run across some Vanguards repressed as MAR stereo discs.
