King Label-When You Come To The End Of The Day-The Ink Spots-1955 Parlophone Label-Yesterdays-The Ink Spots-1954
Above Left: Recorded 7/11/54. Their seventh of nine releases on King (1953-55). This is a very well done version of the 'Decca' Ink Spots' 1947 release.

Above Right: Recorded 7/11/54. Issued in the U.S.A. on King 1378, the group's fifth release on King. Parlophone was "pressed in New Zealand by His Master's Voice (N.Z.) Ltd." (who pressed for "the six world famous labels of H.M.V., Columbia, Decca, M.G.M, Parlophone and Regal Zonophone"). Somehow, Parlophone must have obtained the rights to this King material.

Note that the group members shown on the two above labels are different, although the sides were recorded on the same day!
