(UK) LONDON(-American) JAZZ 45 rpm EPs
1956 - 1959

     This listing was originally published by Paul Pelletier in 1976 along with the main London(-American) EP series; the latter has been re-published in issue Seven of the "Record Information" series but the London Jazz EP listing has long been unavailable. It is presented here in updated form. The variable last letter added to the "EZ" prefix was an "Export" code which indicated restrictions on the official export of the record outside the UK (it varied according to the licensing arrangements the source label had in other countries). The American source label is shown in the far right-hand column.

     The London "Origins Of Jazz" 10-inch LP series can be found here - London "Origins Of Jazz" LPs, 1953-1957
     Any additional information is welcome.
