The penguins - earth angel.
Very rare original UK press of this classic doo wop single from 1955. Original gold lettered tri centre London press. Hey señorita as the a side on this early press. The radio dj's favoured the earth angel side and it was later made the a side.
Very nice to have the original tri centre press. Most copies seen are the big centred export copies and they are very rare as it is.
Matrices - mscf 776-ic & mscf 777 ic
Vinyl is vg....still a very decent sheen. Plays very well. Some mild surface wear. Mild background noise....no skips or jumps....plays great. Tri centre intact...mild spindle wear. The hey señorita has more surface wear than the earth angel side....but plays equally well. A beautiful record. Not likely to come up for sale again anytime soon.
