I am pretty sure it is Mercury given that Osser was one of their chief
arranger/conductors during that period. I've checked a listing of Mercury
LPs and both titles were issued in that format.

As I've posted here before, there is a Vic Damone LP on Mercury which has an
instrumental version of Time On My Hands, an obvious error. I've been trying
for years to determine who recorded it. When I heard the Silvertone
yesterday, I strongly suspect that it is Osser as well.  It is also over 4
