I'm getting that behavior more and more with Yahoo(! -sic)
mail.  It doesn't parse the headers correctly.  Who knows
why - Maybe they've adopted the "Standards are for Saps"
mentality of Microsoft.  I'm starting to use "Reply All"
to mailing list replies and just cutting out the addresses
that are superfluous.

The Decca label disappeared in the US about the time
Universal's parent, MCA, bought it.  That was some time
in the late 60s if I remember correctly.  All the record
labels MCA bought were subsumed under the "MCA Records"
label.  I was surprised to hear the Decca label had made
a comeback in the US.  Did this have something to do with
British Decca (released as "London" here since some time in
the 1950s) changing hands?
