Agree heartily with all comments. When stars moved labels and spent good studio time and money patiently re-recording inferior versions of their Hits, just who bought them, I've always wondered? Was it misguided Grans shopping at Christmas with your Mum, who spotted an artist you liked and said: 'Gran ... I know he likes him / her. Who not get him/her that!?' - that being (say) an LP of all Paul Anka's hits cut for ABC Paramount and re-recorded for RCA.
Swedish Stateside released a lot of non-EMI material...They released EP's by Wink Martindale,Del Shannon and Pat Boone all Decca originally....maybe the Swedish Decca company (Electra) passed on Leapy Lee so it was up for grabs. It appeared in Germany on the Hansa-Ariola label
