As far as I know the Boston Pops recorded Gaite Parisienne 3 times: on 78s in 
1947, on LP in 1954 and again in 1958. The 1954 version was LM 1817 (mono of 
course) and per the Fiedler discography I have, it was reissued in mono and 
stereo on Victrola VIC/VICS 1012. The 1947 version seems to have been issued on 
45s (ERB 13) minus side 7 (which appeared later on ERB 82).

Here's the question..was the version issued in 1958 on Camden CAL 438 the 1947 
one or the 1954 one? The sound is pretty mediocre, although not as atrocious as 
most of those 50s Camden "Fidelity Plus" wobbly transfers of 78s. (I know, I 
know, they got the Beethoven 7th right. That's about the only one.)
