First and second edition back covers, the one to the right (LPM-1707 RE) is from late 1958. In the revised edition,
the words "thirty-one grueling takes" were substituted for "several rehearsal takes" at the end of the left column.
First edition, Rockaway pressing (-3S/-5S), black RCA label with dog on top. This pressing came with the earliest
cover. The label with the "New Orthophonic High Fidelity" top center was discontinued in spring 1959.
Later version of first edition, Rockaway pressing (-19S/-20S), black RCA label with dog on top.
LSP-1707(e): First stereo (electronically reprocessed) edition with revised layout, released in February 1962.
