Today at the thrift store I found a boxset of Swan Lake conducted by Ernest Ansermet on Decca, SXL 2107-8. It's in nice shape, and since this would be my first UK Decca classical recording, I bought it. So I've been researching a bit to see if it's an original. The 1st record appears to be - wide band, deep groove, "Original Recording by". The 2nd record is not - wide band, deep groove, "Made in England by".

My question involves the cover. Mine has a simple boxed "DECCA" in the upper right hand corner, but it looks like most copies have a triangular "DECCA STEREOPHONIC" there instead. I was wondering what the difference is.
