Q: Hi researchers,
Can you find out more about this 10-inch, 33 1/3 record (shown above, Frank Sinatra-Fabulous Frank on Philips B07680R, an album not in your guides). It’s in very good (VG) condition. I would like your help. Thank you.

A: It looks fabulous but... what you have here is a European compilation release, from 1955 (more specifically, released in the Netherlands). Since it is not a U.S. release, it’s not in our guides. It’s not especially rare — copies in very good (VG) condition seldom sell for much more than $10 — but it makes a fine addition to the collection.
