 Almost right, it stands for Buckland Press, found on early copies of The Beatles E.P'sSee Here

 Good point Catagna. I think you could well be right on Burlington Press. Seems to fit the crude acronym on the sleeve.

 No idea, other than it being an anagram of BurP........

Burlington Press, perhaps, Gene?

 To add to Bobzyeruncle's comment, a more correct speed to play this would be at 16 RPM (for those of you who still have a turntable with that speed). You can hear the slow-paced, but very upper-class twit type vocal, especially on "The Ugly Duckling" on which a very posh "Whack - get out of town" sounds brilliant - a bit like Michael Flanders and Donald Swann!

The voices of Pinky and Perky were, in fact, provided by session singers Michael John (27 November 1927 - 7 November 2003), and Charles Young (who I've not been able to find any info on and, therefore, assume is still alive and well).

 "because my TV in part of the 60s was stuck on one channel".......that's a priceless comment, Whyperion.

In the late 60's we had an old black and white cat called Pye (geddit, pie bald), and to get extra warmth, he would lay up on top of our black and white television, to rest and sleep, whilst keeping warm. The TV set had 3 or 4 push buttons on top, to change channels.

To wake up the cat, when he would invariably be looking to get fed, we would call "Pye.....Pye", and he would wake up with a start, stand up to stretch himself, and his big feet would depress the buttons, and change channels, sometimes with hilarious results.

 I forgot BBC re-made Pinky and Perky as CGI animation, http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00jpmys
Neither the Puppet or CGI programmes make it anywhere near my favourites and I think that it was only because my TV in part of the 60s was stuck on one channel - it wouldn't tune to any others , that I saw the original show on a Sunday teatime.

 Camshaft - there sure was: SEG 8389
The Beakles appeared on an edition of Pinky and Perky, on BBC1, around 1964. The sketch was a spoof of Juke Box Jury, and they had to vote whether Pinky and Perky's version of "All My Loving" would be a hit or a miss.

The result? What do you think!

BTW, I have the black label 2nd issue of "Children's Choice" and will be happy to add the labels later today when I get home from work.

 Scanned the back sleeve, I'm sure I've got the record somewhere in my collection, When I do find it, I will scan the labels !
I wonder if anyone remembers the 60's shows, that features a group called the Beakles ? Can't think what they played (and it's obvious!). Did they have any recordings? Can't seem to find anything on them !

 It's almost an LP (and the correct speed) if played at 33 RPM.

 It was released in November 1960.
