 Just got the 1956 pressing at Age UK Shop for £1. Another interesting source of 45s. Images uploaded.

 Thanks KeithS but I have all I need to know about Joe Meek - all I ask is what evidence there was to assert that he engineered the RFH Concert for Decca in 1954 when he was not, as stated, credited.

 I found this about Joe's early days

"Although Joe had begun working as engineer at IBC studios in 1955, because he loved to tinker with sound, since childhood he had been cobbling together various electronic odd bits in his granny's shed. At IBC, Joe engineered radio shows for the likes of Radio Luxemburg as well as records for artists like Gary Miller. Joe was so adept at sound balancing, that in April of 1956 he was tasked with not only recording but also producing a new release, Bad Penny Blues, by jazz artist Humphrey Lyttleton."

 Joe Meek in the 50s was a balance engineer (not a producer) whose job would have been to balance the recording session - live or in a studio.
The LP from which the EP was taken was Decca LK 4088 from April 1955 as per the original LP sleeve which I also have.

 1954 is very early for a Joe Meek engineering effort at a Decca label live concert. Do you have any evidence of this please, alexbalmforth?
