We were buying Mercury LPs from a jobber in the early 50s (at least I'll give
him the benefit of the doubt..they weren't off the back of a truck, at any
rate) and I presume these were the earliest Canadian pressings. For some reason
while the 78s and 45s were clearly identified as to location, the LPs didn't
show a Canadian pressing until the Olympians began to appear. As a result, we
got no liner notes and in a few cases like "Songs of Israel" and "Tenor Jazz",
not even the slightest indication of who performed what. MG 20016 (Tenor Jazz)
lists several more numbers on the reverse, such as MG 10012/14/16/38/44/48/35.
