NotesThis submission varies from the other LP release with a cover variation (see photos), which does not include the LP release number on the lower left front cover, but only "Form 2S2713" in very small letters. This number also appears on the version with the release number on the lower left front of the front cover. This cover version is also darker than the other. This label version (for 12" LPs) ran from 1950-1955 with text printed in gold or silver.
Noted on cover and labels: "As Presented by Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo".
This version (choreographed by Léonide Massine to music by Jacques Offenbach orchestrated by Manuel Rosenthal in collaboration with Jacques Brindejonc-Offenbach, the composer's nephew) premiered April 5, 1938 at the Théâtre de Monte Carlo, Monte Carlo, Monaco.
This LP is RCA Victor's first LP. Released in 1950 although the recording had been done in 1947 on June 20th and had been recorded in Boston's Symphony Hall. It was released as a "box set" of 45s in 1949. RCA had bet on the 45 as the new format for music with an elaborate color scheme for categories, ie. red for classical, black for pop music, green for country and polka and yellow for children's music, but realized in 1950 that the 12" LP was the future of recorded music. Columbia bet on the LP from the beginning.
