US issue is RCA Victor 47-4367. Based solely on what I can see in the photos I'd think this is an export copy. Is there a factory mark (R, C, I or H) in the trailout area?

But (TAYQ), no, I have not seen one.

Until I found a few of these I'd never heard of / seen the RCA International Division and neither it would seem has anyone else.
There must be some out there somewhere though.

On the Mama side - EIVW 1538 1S A1 L Last Night - EIVW 1541 1S A1 L

I saw a few of these when I lived in Tennessee. The town I lived in was home to a big Eastman chemical plant and a US munitions plant (which was run by the British), both of which drew an international workforce. I had always assumed that was the source of the copies I saw. I never came across any "Big Boy" Crudup records though. Mostly pop recordings.

Not that there seems to be much info around but the bunch I found had
Sons of the Pioneers
Lonesome Pine Fiddlers
Piano Red
and the Big Boy
and a few others I can't remember
so a strange series probably

I guess RCA was taking the spaghetti approach. Just throwing everything against the wall and hoping something stuck.

But where? There is little record of this series online and I've spoken to people in UK who've never seen one .
So, anyone, anywhere ?

Hello!
I live in Germany and have seen a few of these RCA pressings. As far as I know they are from Belgium - maybe pressed there.

I got one with the Mike Pedicin Quintet on it and it has the same label graphics and companysleeve.

OK, nobody said I was bright all / some / any the time.
I just read the fine print at the bottom, it says Made in USA . So they must have been for export only.
