A friend in Hong Kong has e-mailed her friend at NYU and I'll probably have the
liner notes by tomorrow. Ain't the Internet wonderful? I haven't set foot in a

The version shown in the 1963 catalog was probably the standard one by that
time, but Angel (and Westminster) issued albums in "thrift" editions with
generic covers as well as the more elaborate ones. I don't know why anyone ever
thought that was a good idea.
