ABC-Paramount fixed a piece of tape to each side of the disc label during manufacturing to obscure some information.

From Billboard - February 19, 1960: Calvert's smooth trumpet style was a big hit in "Oh, My Papa" a few years back. Here he gives it a workout in a variety of numbers and tho he gets off a growl here and there, Calvert sticks mainly with sleek phrasing, a mellow tone and occasional triple-tongued breaks. Selections have an international twist and range from "I Love Paris" they "Slow Boat To China," to "Manhattan."
